Please Help! New gear kit? Or Just new gears?

Hey guys! I'm about to invest in getting new gears installed into my '14 V6 I currently have 2.73s but I'm going to install 3.73s from AM. My question is do I NEED to buy the whole gear installation kit? or Since the car is still relatively new can they just use the bearings and pinions already in the axle? I've just recently started getting into modifying cars so if this question doesn't make sense I apologize! Lol Thanks for any and all replies!

Since your car is a 14 it shouldn't have an issue with just the gears but it would be smart to put the extra money into the install kit to be safe. I have a 2012 which had 48000 miles and installed my gears with a install kit to be safe but I had 48000 miles. Now referring to your question you don't need it I've seen plenty of people get away with only the ring and pinion. And also no question is dumb on this forum everyone is here to help you! Good luck modding my friend cuz when you start you can't stop 👍

Why would you not just buy the kit? You might as well start fresh wit everything. I have a 14 and right now I have just over 7000 miles on it. I'll be doing gears this year for sure, but I will be buying the whole kit.

Talked with a Ford/SVT certified tech with 30yrs of experience and was told it was completely unnecessary unless something was wrong with it since I got it done at 3k miles. Told me to stop taking advice from random people on the internet so seriously haha.

My place (mustang direct) that do gears regularly told me something similar, in a nut shell I would be replacing new parts with well, new parts. They said they'll only recommend the kit if the car has higher milage and or track driven but if the customer wanted to they had no problem doing the kit. With my car being almost new it wasn't necessary.

Im sorry to me it makes no sense. It doesnt cost that much more for the kit and they dont charge more to install the new pieces, so why would you not? At least you have the piece of mind knowing that everything is new and fresh.

I'd like to know also, so much paranoia over gear installs going wrong I can't help but think twice when getting ready to shell out the money.

Like I said before its not a bad idea but when a car is new or very close to it, everything in the diff is new or very close to it. Just my 2¢.

I totally get what youre saying. It really does make sense, maybe Im just overcautious. Like I said right now I have 7600 miles on my car. Ill be doing gears probably before summers end and Ill still buy the kit.

+1, you really can't go wrong with it, and like you also pointed out its not a lot more $$$ to have that piece of mind. Thumbs.
