Description
Improve Performance. Wake up your V8-powered pony for faster acceleration off the line with a set of 4.10 Motive Performance Plus gears. A steeper set of gears will get you into your power band faster for faster launches and more punch off the line. Superior Construction. 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.

Recommended Upgrade. Changing the rear axle gear ratio will throw off the calibration of your Mustangs speedometer, but a new Speedometer Gear is an inexpensive way to fix this issue.

Application. This Motive Performance Plus Ring and Pinion Gear set will fit all 1979 to 1985 V8 Ford Mustangs equipped with a 7.5" rear end. A master bearing kit is recommended by most installers, especially on high mileage vehicles, 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.

took these to a shop to get professionally installed and they said the pinion thread was not right so they cannot tighten it. Probably going to have to return them and buy Ford Racing gears. Car is ripped

    HAD THESE AFTER I GOT BACK FROM DEPLOYMENT IN JULY OF 09 AND IN DECEMBER THEY BROKE AND TORE THE WHOLE REAR-END OUT. SO IF YOU PUT 4.10'S IN, MAKE SURE YOU PUT IN GOOD AXLES, FORD RACING PARTS, AND LUBE IT UP WITH ROYAL PURPLE OR YOU WILL BE SITTING IF YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF MAJOR MOD WORK LIKE MOTOR OR FORCED INDUCTION LIKE MYSELF

    took these to a shop to get professionally installed and they said the pinion thread was not right so they cannot tighten it. Probably going to have to return them and buy Ford Racing gears. Car is ripped apart right now and wont be able to drive it until I get something to put in. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

    its a mess but worth it to install

    April 19, 2010

    Well i bought these and when i went to install them i noticed some problems. the number one problem was that the cross shaft pin absolutely has to be grinded down if you do not buy the posi trac diffriental. the ring gear is alot thicker than that of the stock 323 gears. another thing is that the recommended parts does not say anything about this. TRUST ME IT IS A MESS TO INSTALL BY YOUR SELF BUT WELL WORTH THE POWER DIFFERENCE. IT IS NICE TO SHIFT INTO FOURTH GEAR AND HEAR A BARK WITH BRAND NEW TIRES LOL AND BY THE WAY EVERY ONE THAT COMPLAINS ABOUT THE WHINING NEEDS TO CHECK THEIR BACK LASH ON THEIR CRUSH SLEEVE BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT CAUSES IT TO WHINE

    4.10 Gears (V6)

    March 23, 2010

    Got these installed and at first I was taking it easy on the car and began to wonder why I'd bothered getting the gears. Then I stepped on it and that was the moment I fell in love. The car pulls much better combined with the 7.5" Tlok.

    SWEET

    March 06, 2010

    I had this installed with a T-Lok. After a day of driving, I still have a stupid smile i can't get rid of. American Muscle is the Best. Can't wait to get my tuner and CAI.

    4.10's & Royal Purple

    October 16, 2009

    Bought these and put them in along with a couple of other mods and put royal purple gear lube in to make sure they would set better and the result?? Roasting both tires like a Gt and getting around a whole lot faster! The only downfall is that if they arent set to the exact point then the driveshaft gets out of balance and you have to buy a coastline 4" 1 piece aluminum cause it will vibrate you to death if you dont!

    4.10's

    October 09, 2009

    These really wake your pony up big time. Be sure you have a tuner or your speedometer will be off by about 15mph. Also be sure to be very gentle with your throttle for the first 500 miles or you'll break your gears.

    ACCELERATE!!!

    August 26, 2009

    I had to get my gears from somewhere else because I couldn't wait for restocking but AM still has the best price with free shipping. I had to do a small grind on the cross shaft pin after setup was complete to finish up the install. motive's site states that a special cross shaft pin is needed with these gears. a grind hooked it up though. overall, great! the accelleration is awesome and there is no whining or grinding.
