Gears


#1

for my next mod, i really want gears- 4.10s- which gears are the best and will it be a posi/limited slip rear. i want more acceleration and more equalized power to the wheels not wheel. no more pussy burnouts for me. by the way- it is a 99 v6.


#2

you’d need a different carrier (or 8.8 rear) for posi… 4.10’s are schweet


#3

o so id need a new rear? the v6 comes with a 7.5 rear end right? so would getting the gears for a v6 with the same rear end be worthwhile?


#4

With 4.10’s and stock rear. You’ll be 1 wheel spinnin like nobody’s business.


#5

:lol exactly what i want. ill probly not do gears then. why get more power to one wheel? id rather equalize power and not spend an ass of money. i could weld that spider up and then ill be locked… hmm tire wear vs. no tire wear… i think ill pass for now on gears. im bummed out now.

what do you mean by ‘carrier’?..

i thought they made t-loks for 7.5" rear…i think theres one on v6mustangstuff…lemme check…

here we go -

anyway, didnt hrnb do this? i think he still has his 7.5 rear… and 4:10’s


#7

i think booze got an eaton (aftermarket) unit, but the ford trac lok is a cheaper alternative and works fine…lots of folks do it


#8

i think it was auburn, but either way, thats what i thought… im just wondering what MD meant when he said something about a new carrirer

(im asking becasue i am hopefully doing gears soon too and was also going to put in a posi if possible)[/quote]


#9

I think Booze’s eaton is an 8.8 though.

The V6 comes with an open gear? All of them? Was posi even an option?


#10

not that i know of - i have the open def. and as far as i know all the sixxers have it - someone correct me if im wrong… .and booze, what size is your rear end?? (that sounded weeeird)

edit: i just pmed hrnb to ask him what hes got, but in the meanwhile i checked his cardomain page and it looks like they just swapped in new gears in the same rear end, but i dont know everythign about gears so we’ll see what he says, i could be wrong)

You can get everything for a 7.5" rear-end as an 8.8" rear-end. Well, as low as 4:56. As for my possi, it’s an Auburn and I paid around 200 bux for it. If you get lower gears, get a possi at the same time because it doesn’t cost anymore in labor, plus if you do 4:10’s without possi, your drive tire will spin like your on butter.

#14
