This Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP) M-4700-C Traction Lok Clutch Rebuild Kit includes carbon fiber clutch pack, shims, S-spring and instruction sheet, which is everything needed to rebuild a Mustang 8.8" Rear Differential, whether it's 28-spline or 31-spline, minus bearings. This kit fits all 1986-2014 Mustang 28 & 31 spline 8.8" Traction-Lok Differentials and utilize Carbon fiber clutch discs designed for higher torque usage.

5 Stars   Best kit out there
By on 5/15/2014
I've bought two of these for different cars, and they're the best clutch kits for Ford Traction-Lok diffs. That being said, the s-spring included in the kit is a pain to install. It's also unnecessary in most vehicles, since the spider gears actually seat the clutches when power is applied and the car has traction. The s-spring only adjusts preload, With high preload, you'll have additional traction at low speeds on slippery surfaces, but the diff will chatter around corners in parking lots. It's annoying. For a drag car or a tow vehicle, the extra preload is a good thing. For a street or open track car, the car will corner better and still have excellent acceleration if run your stock s-spring.

Oh, and LRS has the best price on this kit. Buy one!

5 Stars   Awesome kit!

This is the perfect kit for rebuilding that traction-lok. I put this kit in as part of a 3.55:1 gear swap on my '90 7-up car. The S spring is VERY tight but it does go in even on 28 spline axles. I put the clip in with my shop press and some lube on the edges to get it to slide on the side gears. When using the S spring with this kit, the c-clips for the axles were a bit tight going in based the S spring but they did go. I did think as I was tapping the c clips in that it would be fun to have to remove them base the s spring later but haven't had to try.

I have not experienced any popping noise when turning and such even with the bigger S spring installed. I did soak the clutch liners in friction modifier for a few days though not just 15 minutes so I think this might have helped with that.

Will do this upgrade on any future street 8.8 builds I do!

I got this kit installed at the same time I got my FRPP 4.10 gears from LateModel Restoration installed at a Mustang performance shop. I have a 2003 GT and at 143k miles the stock clutch pack was getting worn out. For some reason the new S-spring was about 3/8" thicker than the stock one and broke in two pieces as we were compressing it before actually installing it. Reused the stock S-spring as it was still in good shape. I honestly do not feel a great difference, but it brings a piece of mind knowing I have a high quality clutch pack installed along with my new gears. I definitely recommend this to anyone either doing a gear swap or just wants to rebuild their rear end.

5 Stars   Trac Lok rebuild kit
By on 4/16/2015
Not your standard rebuild kit, carbon discs. These came on the GT500s and I believe the Bullits. Dont rebuild your rear end and not do this. This is a must upgrade/ peace of mind item. You dont want to tear your differential all apart and then your Trac Lok slip and fail leaving you to have to tear it back apart. Install is really only a few minutes. Do yourselfl a favor, splurge a little more when doing your gears and get these, you will not be disappointed.

This kit made my old traction Lok perform better than new! I reused the old s spring after fighting with the one in the kit for about 2 hours. The stock one went right in and works perfectly. The one in the kit is much stiffer and I'm sure works very well if I could have gotten it in. That spring just beat me, bottom line lol

5 Stars   New T-lok!
By on 9/16/2014
Discs freshened up my 8.8 and locks up better then ever! Great peace of mind knowing my rear end has a new traction lok. Installed while doing a 3.73 gear swap and was extremely simple. Even getting the new (bigger) S-spring was a breeze with a 28 spline differential, just used a press and a little but of oil.

I bought this carbon disk kit a couple weeks ago, installed it in about 4 hours. It is very easy! The included instructions tell you exactly how to prep and install (always refer to a repair manual) them. I'm very happy with my purchase, and shipping was very fast!

Let my clutches soak over night and everything went right together. I would advise watching the you tube video on the spring install. A lot of people reuse the original because they can't get the new one in. It's really not that hard with a lil patience.

I had originally bought just 4.10 ring and pinion gears. While taking the rearend apart my mechanic noticed the clutches were worn. So I ordered this set of carbon fiber clutches. Very happy with the performance.

It's a great upgrade for a stock carrier. S clip is hard to install on a fox carrier but is not needed. With the old s clip the car has awesome traction.
