Description

Improve Overall Performance.Wake up your V8-powered Pony and get better acceleration off the line with a set of steeper gears. These high quality 3.55 gears from Motive will give your Mustang more pull off the line and get you into your power band faster for quicker quarters and lower ET's.



Superior Construction & Precision Fit. These Motive ring and pinon gears are CNC cut from high grade 8620 gear steel, and factory lapped for precision fit. Each set is hardness tested prior to leaving the factory to ensure the highest quality. Unlike other brands, Motive Gears do not have a reputation for "gear whine".



Recommended Upgrade. Changing the rear axle gear ratio will throw off the calibration of your Mustangs speedometer, but a Ford Racing Speedometer Recalibration Tool (94-10) is an inexpensive way to fix this issue.



Application. This Motive Performance Plus Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1986 to 2011 V8 Mustangs including GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, Cobra and the 2011 V6 Mustangs equipped with the 8.8" rear end. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, see drop down option above.



Attention 2010 and newer Mustang Owners. Starting in 2010 Ford changed the inner rear gear pinion bearing in all 8.8" equipped Mustangs. Because of this you will require a new 8.8" rear gear pinion bearing (Ford part# 9L3Z-4630-A) for proper installation, please see drop down option above.

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. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, see drop down option above.

    This gear set is harder than stock and is smooth from the get go. I have a Detroit Locker differential so it was not an easy fit. But once I got the right fit it is flawless! The real challenge was getting the stock bearing races out by my self. Freakish. Other than that and getting the gears to fit without binding...it is a very satisfactory setup of a 3.55 rear axle assembly.
