  • Motive 8.8" Rear End Installation and Bearing Kit

Description
Improve ET's and low end torque. Are you looking to get more low end grunt off the line and lower ET's at the same time? Then look no further than installing a set of steeper gears in your Pony. This Ford Racing Ring and Pinion Gears are perfect for street, road, or race use.

Complete Kit. This Ford Racing Gear and Installation Kit comes complete with all the components needed to swap out your ring and pinion gear. It includes Ring gear, Pinion gear, 1 bottle of Friction Modifier, 2 bottles of 75w90 Gear Oil, gaskets, seals, shims, bearings and all the required hardware.

Legendary Ford Racing Quality. When you're adding performance parts to your Pony, you can't go wrong by installing parts from the folks that know it best. Ford Racing's legendary quality ensures years of hassle-free use.

Recommended Upgrade. Changing the rear axle gear ratio will throw off the calibration of your Mustangs speedometer, but a Speedometer Gear, a Ford Racing Speedometer Recalibration Tool or a Bama SF4/X4 Power Flash Tuner is a quick and easy way to fix this issue.

Application. This Ford Racing 4.10 Rear Gear and Installation Kit is designed for use with 8.8in solid rear axle equipped Mustangs, including the 1986-2009 GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, Shelby GT500 and 1994-1998 SVT Cobra. It will not fit the 1999-2004 IRS equipped Cobra Mustangs.

Technical Note. Installation costs will vary, but a good rule of thumb is between $250 and $300. Be sure to work with a reliable shop that you trust for installations. You can also save money on your installation labor by having your Trac-Lok rebuilt at the same time as your gears are installed, see drop down option above.

will i have to update my tune through bama whenever i install these new gears? i have a bama tune and am wondering if i will have to email them requesting a tune upon installation.

Zack06gt

  • Yes - for those with 1999+ V8 Mustangs, you will want to let our Bama team know that you have upgraded your gear ratio. They can add that to your tune information, which will correct your speedometer reading. Hope this helps!

4.10 fuel mileage How much of an effect does it make on the fuel mileage in an05 GT mustang to go from 3.23.to 4.10's with an automatic

BeauandStacisGT

  • 10-20%. If you are worried about fuel mileage, don't do it. But if you want your Mustang to perform better, change the gears.

4.10 gears i have a 01 cobra modified and I am looking at gearing it with either 4.10 or 3.73. about what would the top speed of 4.10s be and then top speed of 3.73s

lskiller46

  • 4.10s won't effect your top speed too much. At least not enough to make you need 3.73s instead. Personally unless you daily your cobra I think you should go 4.10s for the best performance. Because most people don't get to the top speed of their gears often and when the do it isn't for very long and it isn't really applicable during a race where you mostly get to around 100-130 depending on mods. Both gears will easily let you get to these speeds the 4.10 will be quicker though.

    Gear up for great Gains!

    Just literally got home after a full day in the shop. Added several things but I will focus on the Gears at Hand! I replaced the 3.37 Stock gears in my 08 GT WELL WELL WELL, I didn't know I was driving a race car until I drove home 63.3 miles... First gear is quick, second hold on to something, third vapor trail!!! I was shocked at how well this one simple swap make such a impact on my car! If you don't have 4.10's in your GT, you really should just get a Smart Car, cause I was really DUMB not to do this a few years ago!!! AM always does it right, orders are easy, the guy and gals all know there stuff! You will thank me if you pull the trigger on these gears... Highway speeds, I left this morning checked RPM @ 80 was about 2100-2200, that was the stock 3.37 on the way home with the 4.10 @ 80 RPM was just under 3000 more like 2800/2900 I can live with that! Didnt try to fun it much over since I replaced gears and differential..

My stang feels much faster and shifts way better then before. If you own a convertible GT get the 4.10 gears and don't bother with the 3.73

    best performance for under $500

    Found a major difference in accel! Went from a 3.27 rear gear to 4.10 and ill say, its the best upgrade for building on a budget or a purpose built car like mine for road racing!

    Perfect gear for 0-60 badassery!

    This has to be the perfect gear for the S197, as it pulls super hard in all gears but still allows for somewhat decent RPM's at highway speeds. Combined with a Steeda stage three suspension kit, the vehicle has no wheel hop so I know I'm putting every lb of torque straight into the ground. Punching it even at around 25-30 MPH spins the tires and sends the vehicle in a horizontal direction (can't say that for the stock 3.55's.) I have an automatic and during hard acceleration from the stoplight I can now choose whether to floor it and go sideways or feather the pedal for a quick smooth takeoff. Either way, the vehicle is much more fun to drive but I'm sure a new set of tires will be in order soon! I'm the kind of driver who is addicted to fishtailing around every corner, so these gears were exactly what the Dr. ordered. I had a local speed shop install them and there was a bit of gear whine at first, but after about 100 miles, they quieted down. Had the shop changed out the diff oil after about 200 miles to clear out any metal particles from the break-in period. Overall - If smokey burnouts, donuts, and attracting attention from bystanders (I.E. law enforcement) are not your thing, definitely go with 3.73's, otherwise order up and have some axle twisting fun!

    Wakes up your S197!

    I have a for the most part stock 2008 GT. It came with the factory 3.55 gears.All my other mustangs had 3.73s. I was skeptical about the 4.10s. But going from 3.55 to 3.73 is a waste of time and money. Checked out YouTube videos, the AM comments here and hit up Mustang forums and majority said the 4.10s with the 5 speed are perfect. So I went with this kit. Awesome investment, the kit has everything you need for the upgrade. Just remember you will need a tuner! After completion, I took it out and it was a whole new car. Acceleration was much better, and no need to downshift to pass someone. These gears keep the car in that powerband range and is responsive from whatever gear you were in. Highway driving not bad as I did see from the videos and now in person, 70mph, rpms @ 2400-2500 range, not bad. No regrets whatsoever! Excellent kit and price. Thank AM!

    Holy Smokes!

    First off, I did take it to a shop and had it done professionally. It cost $525. So total out of pocket is under $800. I have done CAI, tuner, short throw shifter, lowering springs, and wheels. THIS IS THE FIRST THING THAT SHOULD BE DONE ON ANY MUSTANG. Unbelievable difference in the launch, running through the gears, the whole deal. I can't wait for one of those little import tuners to flex some muscle. I definitely can hold my own against them, but they always get me off the line. I don't think that will be a problem any more. I don't know why this is not a standard gearing for the Ford Mustang.
