Pretty much everyone here will have got the gears and the install kit/fluid from American Muscle or Latemodel Restoration.

I'd just get them from wherever is the cheapest and get FRPP only.

Yup, AM or LMR since they sell complete kits and definitely only go with FRPP (even though they are made by motive).

American Muscle. You can have a junkie do them for $100 and be messed up. You get what you pay for on the install. I called around and found that my local Ford (4 miles away) dealer did gears. I had them do my 3.73's. I had the gears and they changed the axle seals, fluid and labor for $550.

Unless Ford Racing brought them back in house again or found a different vendor, they were being made by Motive for a several years. That's not to say they are the same as what Motive makes for themselves, they are made to Ford Racing's specs, which is why they are still better.

IIRC any Ford Racing Gear that starts with the "M" in the part number is one made to Ford Racing spec by Motive.

The M in front of that part number means Motive dude. They took over the FRPP gears a little while back. Richmond too. They are fine to use.

Motive makes the FRPP gears for Ford so no, not technically.

Kinda like how Borla makes all the FRPP exhaust. Cheaper to contract it out to your specs than have all the tooling, employees, etc to make it yourself.

I think what Jek57 was saying was the fact that the FRPP site is saying the Gears are made at the Sterling Plant, which last I checked was still a Ford UAW Plant (Ford Contract, not Motive).

Well I just called this number Techline: (800) FORD788, which was included at the bottom of that web page at https://performanceparts.ford.com/part/M-4209-88373

Without hesitation, the gentleman I asked about these gears being made by Motive, assured me that they are in fact made by Ford. And that it's been many years since Ford sold the gears made by Motive.

Thanks for the links.

What's the benefit of the LOK kit?

They are the friction plates inside your differential. Their job is to create friction to assist in applying / transferring torque and power. The kit I linked is far superior to the stock ones. So to answer your question: more torque and the ability to put down more power.

So the base package just needs the LOK clutch rebuild kit to be equal to the "track pack"? The base stock diff just has "lesser" clutch pack?

The track pack uses an entirely different differential (Torsen) - they do not use the LOK clutch plates. It's an entirely different type of technology that is utilized in the Track Pack Torsen differentials.

If you do not have a track pack Mustang, and you are planning on upgrading your gears, upgrade your LOK clutch plates as well. They are likely worn down anyways, so this is not only a replacement, but an upgrade at the same time.
