Sorry if this isn't what you're looking for, I would recommend going to a dealer see who they would recommend. Try to talk to the techs if you can.

Nah, go to a local car show. Ask around there who people use. That or join a local mustang club or ask members of it who they have used

Try ExactMotorSports in San Jose (John)

He does lots of aftermarket parts and is pretty damn good.

For simple rear gear swap, call Rearend SPecialties in Santa Clara, near San Jose AIrport. They have been doing this for almost forever. In San Jose, you can also go to Z Car Garaage. Google both for numbers and addresses. Rob is the owner and does hi-perf custom jobs. While mainly a Nissan/Infinity customization shop, they easily do handle other brnads. They did by Vortech blower on my 2011 GT and is about to do an upgrade for me. You will NOT be disappointed. PM me if you want more info...happy to help!

A place in SF called "rear end specialties" doesn't sound like an auto performance shop... And "totally satisfied" makes it even more funny. Sorry couldn't resist that haha

What can I say, new ring and pinion with benefits. The break-in period was "hard".
