No, that's not in the plans till next year at the earliest (going to get some AX practice in before install). The spring plans for the car include:

FRPP - 3.73 Gears, LSD w/ Carbon Discs & Rear Pinion Flange
Moser - 31 Spline Axles w/ Studs & Rear Diff Bearing Cap Stud Kit
MM - FLSFCs
UPR - LCAs

I have all the parts sitting on my shelf except the axle, LSD and bearing cap kit (axle has been ordered today).

Don't worry, I took care of the mesh (Hood scoop got the same treatment) :

This list has worked out really well. I've gotten some great (and $ saving) advice and also a single place to consult on my past decisions. Good luck on yours!

Sounds like a tranny problem. Create a new thread for your question.

Finally got all the axle/gear/lsd/misc install pieces bought!

Now time to find a shop near Albany, NY. Any suggestions? At this point I'm considering driving to Mustang Magic (3-4hr drive) just to know I'll get a good install.

Any cost estimates to install new axles, lsd and gears? I'm imagining ~$400?

How much more to install MM FLSFC and LCAs?

Can't wait to see the difference!

since the LSD is out of the car, you may want to install the gears yourself. gear installs alone cost between $250-500 depending on shop and location. the diff fluid is pretty expensive as well. if you tackle that part yourself, then maybe the install for everything else will be ~$400.

FLSFC install are around the $100 range from what I understand. Don't know about LCA's, but with a friend, the install isn't too difficult to do yourself. May want to get that done with the axles though, they probably won't charge nearly as much since the majority of the work to replace them will be done anyway.

Are there any issues about the gears not being "pre-loaded"? I'm not sure if this is the right term, but basically, can I shim and set the pinion depth correctly with them outside the car?

That's what I'm thinking. I'll try and get them to do a line item estimate and if it's $75-100 or more I'll just do them myself.

hmm didn't think about issue with pre-load.. don't know much abt that, would be better to further research the topic. i'm sure any shop with decent human beings wouldn't charge you $75-100 for an item(s) that is less than five minutes to install when all the other work is being considered. although i will say "decent" people seem to be getting harder to find...

When I pull the exisiting 28 spline axles, 3.31 gears and LSD out of the car, is that all I need to sell it as an '8.8" Real End'?

Do people usually expect the axle housing (if that's the correct name) and the differential housing? That would be great to get some $ back towards the install, any idea on a price point for the used items?

Can't wait to get all this installed. Hearing from everyone on here, the FLSFC and gears should make this feel like a completely different car.

the gears sure will, haven't installed my FLSFC's yet, been sittin around for almost 6 months...

oh and i got the same LCA's, let me know how your rear sway bar re-install went. I had to use myself and two of my friends, which all three of us lift weights a few times a week, and we could barely squeeze that SOB in there.. when i installed my PHB, i just left it off. figured i'd tackle it another day when i have a few hours to burn

dont know if you directed towards me or OP, but i got my UPR LCA's because of jazzer's recommendation on his suspension guide, AND because they were more than half the price! I find it difficult to believe the MM's would offer that much more performance to be worth that steep of a price jump.

Ditto. I picked the UPR LCA's for around $160, can't beat it (And these things feel VERY well made). I'm sure Sharad from UPR (he's on these forums) could give you some help/advice as well.

I may be biased against UPR products on a car that the owner hopes will handle, but from the failure rate of some of their other products on street driven mustangs, I'd be fairly worried about pushing the car hard on any track. The other reason why I asked is because it seems like you're wanting to go the handling route but you're mixing in parts that were designed for the strip, the problem with that is the parts were tested under 2 different load types.

Thats the only reason, sorry if this muddy's up your thread.

No worries. I spent a lot of time deciding between a couple of LCAs, including MM and UPR. Looking at the design, both are very similar with a (poly)urethane bushing at one end, spherical bearing at the other. The main benefit of both LCAs is to free up the inherent bind of the stock suspension (will help in the twisties) and cut down on wheel hop (will help in the 1/4 mile). The main difference came down to price, where the UPR LCA was the clear winner. And if it breaks (haven't heard of any problems with LCAs) there is always a lifetime guarantee.
