Product Description

Here Latemodel Restoration Supply we know what it takes to install a new set of rear end gears into your Mustang, so we put it all together for you to take out all of the guesswork!

Not only do we include the hardware (rear end gears, bearings, shims), but we also include all of the software (gasket, seals, marking compound, gear oil, friction modifier) needed to do the job the right way!

Ford Racing rear end/ring and pinions gears improve acceleration and performance on your Mustang or Cobra! When its time to replace your stock gears go with the best! Trust the proven name, use Ford Racing’s heavy duty rear axle ring and pinion set. Pinion nut included.

Royal Purple Max-Gear gear oil is an ultra-tough automotive gear oil. It’s designed to maximize power and provide unsurpassed protection to heavily loaded gears. It makes gears run smoother, quieter, cooler and longer without overhauls. Max-Gear outperforms other gear oils because it combines the highest quality synthetic oils with Royal Purple’s proprietary Synslide additive technology.

Ford Racing friction modifier is a specially formulated additive to provide smooth operation of clutch-type limited-slip differentials. 1 bottle of friction modifier is required when changing the gear oil in rear ends equipped with Ford traction-lock units.

Now, everything you need to install rear gears in one package! Kit includes:
1 FRPP 3.55:1 gearset
1 FRPP M-4210-B2 bearing kit (includes GT500 pinion bearing, carrier bearings, pinion seal, ring gear bolts, pinion nut, crush sleeve, shims, and marking compound)
1 bottle of Friction Modifier
2 bottles of Royal Purple 75W90 gear oil

**Although the Royal Purple gear oil contains friction modifier, we highly recommend including the Ford Racing friction modifier along with the gear oil when refilling your rear end.**

Due to Hazmat regulations, lubricants/fluids cannot be shipped to APO/FPO addresses.

    5 Stars   3.55 gears
    By on 10/10/2014
    Got these gears to rebuild the diff on my 92 lx. Great all around gears for daily driving. If you're looking to upgrade gears without messing up your mpg then 3.55 is a good way to go. It really makes a noticeable difference when you get on the gas.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    By on 10/10/2014
    Had my rears changed on my 92 lx convertable from a 2.73 to 3.55. Love everything from the wine of the rears to the increased reponse...had a local transmission shop install it for me since it is out of my scope of practice....i would definitely recommend. ..

    5 Stars   Good Deal and Quality Parts
    By on 8/11/2014
    Noticed this kit has Lots of Ford Racing parts where others may be a mix. 3rd and 4th are more useful. First is shorter and 5th is about 2500 rpm at 65 mph

    4 Stars   Not a bad little kit for doing a gear swap!
    By on 12/16/2014
    This kits gives you almost everything you need to do a proper gear swap. The only thing I would ask for are:

    1) more gear marking compound. This kit came with very little, no brush and it was all dried out so I ended up ordering a Jegs gear marking compound kit elsewhere

    2) I would have liked a better selection of different carrier barring shims. The kit has a decent assortment from 0.008 - .025" but it would be nice to have a few thinner ones as well. When you are trying to bring in backlash by a 0.003-0.004", 0.008 or too big of a shim and you end up having to mix and match combinations of larger and smaller shims too much.

    Other than that the kit was well put together. It would be totally complete if axle bearings and seals were included as well (why not replace those when you are basically rebuilding everything else??)

    I'll buy this kit again for my next 8.8 gear swap.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   Includes everything needed for gear swap
    By on 4/10/2015
    Very nice package you guys put together. I am still in process of installing new diff but the gear kit has been very nice. Shim kit is pretty extensive and all bearings are koyo. Great quality stuff and would recommend to anyone looking to swap gears. I've had 3.55 in the past and they are a great all around gear (nice highway, decent for drag, I think they will be great for autox). Way cheaper to go with full kit then to try and piece bearings together separately locally.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   great kit
    By on 7/30/2015
    Image uploaded by Fred G. This kit was worth every penny. The instructional video is fantastic too.

    My only minor complaint is the pan gasket is pictured and my kit didn't come with it. I had to order it separate. This kit should come with the gasket and you should include the outer bearings and seals to really make it a "complete" kit.

    other than getting cheated on the missing pan gasket, this kit made my new 8.8 awesome.

    5 Stars   great price and great product
    By on 12/27/2014
    they take alot of the guess work out when you buy this kit. has everything you need to get the job done. i added some wheel bearings to my order and replaced those as well. plus the added bonus of the instructional video was awesome. i watched it a bunch and it gave me the knowledge and confidence to do the job myself. If you haven't installed gears before i highly recommend at least giving it a try once.

    5 Stars   Huge Difference!
    By on 7/20/2015
    I bought these gears thinking that it was going to make my mustang feel peppy. After I installed the gears and took it for a spin WOW! Night and day difference! It woke up my mustang and now it just feel like my mustang just wants to go fast! If you really want to get a performance upgrade that you will feel after your done installing it then you should look no further and buy these!

    5 Stars   Improved Performance & Excellent Value
    By on 5/10/2015
    The kit is an excellent value compared to other sources. The change from 2.73 to 3.55 gears has made the car much more fun. I would also recommend the Cobra Traction-Lok rebuild kit to go with new gears. My technician friend found that my original discs were worn and slipping.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   Rear gears
    By on 3/9/2015
    I received the 3.55 rear gears and with the help of a few friends, installed them the next day. Perfect for this car, all the parts needed for installation were in the box.
    Thanks guys.

    Always!

    I chose 3.55 due to a turbo setup and wanting more top end / gear for the highway... in Mexico of course..
