Application. This Ford Racing Rear Axle Bearing and Seal Kit is designed for use with 8.8in solid rear axle equipped V8 Mustangs, including the GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and the 1994-1998 SVT Cobra. It will not fit the 1999-2004 IRS equipped Cobra.

Will These fit My 2001 mustang gt? Im wondering if these are going to fit my "all stock" 2001 mustang gt

Hillman Year: 2001 Model: GT

  • The 2001 Mustang GT came from the factory with the standard 8.8 Ford rear differential. This kit is designed for your car. The kit does not fit Cobras with the Independent Rear Suspension (IRS).

Will these work for the 7.5in rear on v6's? I have a 2000 v6 mustang with a 7.5in rear, will these work? This bearing and seal kit is relatively inexpensive. I've been told that most of the components are similar in 7.5 and 8.8.

    Awesome Purchase

    My 98 needed axle bearings very bad, local store wanted 39.99 for just one bearing. Found these ford racing ones for 24.99 with 2 bearings and 2 seals, did next day shipping and still came out cheaper then my local parts store. Very happy with the outcome. Will be back for more!! Thanks AmericanMuscle.

    Great product

    I had my mechanic install the axle seal and bearings on my car. I watched as he did it and it seemed to me as though he had not a problem whatsoever installing it. Its been roughly 300 miles since and I've had no problems. I can't say I feel any kind of difference but definitely a great product.

    Very satisfied

    The fact that this product is a Ford product alone made me buy this product. I had a blown out axle seal, and bought this package here, gave it to my mechanic and he said that it looked like a quality product and was a breeze to install. Its been about 5,000 miles since the install and have had no problems. I recommend this product.

    Great replacement, American Made!

    These bearings and seals are very high quality. Exactly what you'd expect from Ford Racing. Make sure you have a slide hammer for bearing removal, and a bearing set tool for proper installation. Fast shipping, as always, from AM!
