  • 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.

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 ...

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 Year: 2006 Model: GT

  • 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!

Fit I want to be sure that fit on my svt cobra 99? The ford dealer said its the same for a svt cobra 99 that a gt v8. But you write on the fit spec that not fit there??? I want buy a 4.10 kit gear now

Stephan99svt Year: 1999 Model: Cobra

  • You have a 8.8 inch rear all your doing is changing the ring and pinion and bearings and oil. When the rear is set up it is different each time with the shimming to get the proper back lash. Unless you have the tool to do this take it to a go shop and have it done. 400 to 500 dollars.

too speed I wanted to know how everybodies top speed was if its like 5 mph lower thats fine

Yetismustang Year: 2008 Model: GT

  • Adding the new gears will most likely drop your top speed 10-20 mph. You'll certainly get to your top speed quicker, but if you still want a reasonable number, you might want to consider the 3:73 or 3:55 gears, especially if it is a daily driver.

    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.

    This fit my truck 1992 F150 just right and the Rpms went up by 300 at 65 mph, so if for what I paid worth it for sure.

    Installed Instant Power

    Shop installed the gears for me, I instantly noticed the difference in acceleration. Be sure to get the gear that fixes the speedometer otherwise your speedometer will be off. Great bolt on gear for you mustang. If you are looking for instant acceleration 4.10 gears are the way to go!!!

    0-60 in *WOW*

    I have an automatic. 4.10's are exactly what my Stang needed. I was so bored driving around at 1600 rpms. Now I cruise around at 2200-2700 rpms and wirh my PYPES catted X-pipe ot sounds like a GT should. My motor seems to have a lot less stress on it to when I'm accelerating. I didn't notice any less mpg too. My gas mileage totally depends on the way I drive. Thanks A.M.

    4.10 Install

    The product was of good quality as are all A.M products. I did however call several times inquiring if the kit comes with axle bearings and seals, and was told twice (by two different A.M professionals that the kit does come with the bearings and seals). I was informed by my mustang specialist mechanic when i came to pick up my car that the kit DID NOT come with the bearings or the seals. I was lucky enough that my original 09' bearings have only 23,000 miles on them and were still in perfect condition. So, if your mustang has quite a few miles on it, I would recommend also buying new seals and bearings. Other than that, the gears along with the Hurst shifter I installed, the car feels great. Thanks American Muscle.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      My apologies if those you spoke with possibly misunderstood your question. As you mentioned, this kit does not come with Rear Axle Bearings and Seals; though we do sell those separately if needed. Glad to hear you are enjoying your newly installed gears! New gears can definitely make your Mustang feel like a totally new beast.
