Not much faith in used gears. They already have a wear pattern. We get them installed here in Central Tx for $200. Call around in your area.

good deal on the gears and a little high on the install but if you cant find it a better deal than go for it i paid 175 for my gears and 250 for the install so youll be doing a little better than me. the recall sounds like bs to me that didnt happen in any mustangs as far as i know

I paid $200.00, for my 4.10, but the shop only charged me $230.00 for my install. I agree with tommyd04gt, used gears aren't a wise choice. Just buy a new FRPP gear you'll be happier in the long run.

I got used FRPP 3.73's and LSD (2000 miles on the set up when I bought them) for $80 and install was $175...no problems with them

13.7 would be my guess (with a 5 speed)

How much does he charge if you supply the gears and install kit? Does he know what he's doing? If he's good I wouldn't mind paying a bit more to know it's done right.
13.7 for a stock car with just gears???


our cars didnt come with that factory nitrous kit like the foxes and LS1's :D
