Well.. Whoops.

A few months ago my buddy and I installed a set of ford racing 3.55 gears. This past weekend I managed to get to the track and drive around overall having a great time. But now unfortunately a few bolts walked out of my ring gear and has thus caused various sounds to be coming out of my diff.. Anyways.. Who know where the best price for another set of 3.55 gears is? (Or 3.73) ordered mine from AM last time but this time I'm rather broke. Lol every penny counts. Oh and I'll probably need a pinion bearing at the least if not a full install kit

The Ford Racing gears are pretty much the same price everywhere.

Custom tunes, speedo calibrators, such as, hypertech, superchips, etc. All should be able to do it.

Gear install is the one thing I left to the professionals. I'd love to tackle it myself one day though

Being "poor" is an expected condition whenever we drive our Mustangs in a sprited matter during the weekend on a track. It happened to me and my 2011 Mustang. Finally sold it, and was in the market for a Boss 302. That has changed a bit, as I'm now looking at the soon to be released Mustang special models I'm reading about.

Or, maybe a nice unmolested Boss can still be had. Then back to the track, and a lot poorer.

possible stupid question.

with an 8.8 inch rear, and little money to be had, can you not pull the gears out of an explorer or an f150?

Why would you even try this one? This isn't a bolt on mod!
