I have been calling/looking around the Kansas City, Missouri area trying to find someone that is EXPERIENCED with installing/setting up rear-end gears. I got my 4.10:1 Ford Racing gears today (along with a Motive Force installation kit complete with bearings/seals/shims and all fluids needed).
The ONLY people that I've found that say they have done this kind of job is the Ford Dealers --- and they want $500+ to do the job. I did find a local shop that would do the work for approximately $275, but NOBODY in the shop has actually done this job --- my car would be the first (no thanks!).
I really thought that $300 would be enough to budget for this job. What do I do? Where do I go?

Most shops go by the 'book' and if it says 5 hours, then $500 is going to be about average anywhere you go. ($100/hr seems to be the average around here too). You might be able to find a shop that knows they can do it in less than the '5 hours' and/or charges less than the average rate and come out less expensive than that, but then that is where the word 'average' comes from

It doesn't have to be a Mustang only or a speed shop it only has to be a driveline shop.It's not rocket science
+1 dosen't have to be mustang related to set up a ring and pinion, nor does it have to be a speed shop. Any shop that does lifted trucks generally can set up a ring and pinion easy as most lifted trucks need the lower gear ration to compensate for the huge rotating mass of the tires.

OK... thanks! You guys have given me new ideas on places to look.
It has been a little over 20 years since I last had this kind of work done (had 3.55 gears installed in a 1986 Mustang GT to replace the factory 2.73 gears). I'm getting older and definitely developing a case of CRS!!
I cant help you with any shops in or around Missouri , but I pieced all my parts together and had a drivetrain shop install mine for 250.00 Ended up being around 280 with taxes and he didnt want to use my synthetic fluid. Just look for a drivetrain place around you.
