Alright, so I originally had plans to do exhaust but I'm not sure if this is an offer too good to pass up. I was planning to do gears in the future so this might work out. Note: I have a 2004 v6 mustang 5 spd
Searching the ole' craigslists and saw two ads.
Ad #1: 97 GT stock 8.8 rear end w/ 2.73 gears $150
Ad #2: recently 2002 GT Rebuilt Ford mustang 8.8 rear rebuilt with Carbon Clutch packs and have a set of 373 gears $125 obo posi $100 obo gears
I can now buy a 96 GT 8.8 rear end with 410s for $400 asking price on Cragislist. I think I should get this, it sounds like a good deal. Thoughts????
Questions to answer:
1. The gears from the 2002 GT *would not* fit the 97 rear end correct?
2. The posi (limited slip differential right?) *would* fit the 97 GT 8.8 though, unlike the gears correct?
3. Do I even need to install a posi, does the 97 GT have one?
4. What kind of install would be required/what might a shop charge to install the posi and lets say 4.10 gears if I bought them? Thats $150 rear end + 125 posi + 140 gears + ??? for labor. (I'll try to install the rear end myself, just need the gears and posi put in)
Thanks in advance! (It'd help if each question was answered in the space between each question!
