Description
Stronger. If you are upgrading the rear gears in your Pony it's a good idea to replace your wimpy stock Girdle Support System (a.k.a. differential cover) with a super strong Chrome Plated Steel Differential Cover for additional safety and great custom looks.

Superior Construction. This 7.5" Rear End Differential Cover is made from heavy duty gauge steel for strength and features a bright chrome finish that will be sure to attract attention. This chrome plated rear end cover comes complete with the necessary bolts and gaskets for installation.

Recommended Upgrade. When changing your differential cover it is recommended to upgrade to fresh Royal Purple Synthetic Gear Oil. You will need 3 quarts of Gear Oil.

Application. This Steel Rear End Differential Cover is designed to fit 1979 to 2010 Mustangs equipped with 7.5" rear end gears.

Great replacement!

My differential cover was bent outward, causing a leak. I tried hammering and clamping, but to no avail. This cover is the cheapest I could find. It is also the only chrome one I found, as well as the ...

The cover is thicker than I expected, which is good since the original one was pretty banged up and leaking. Having the bolts and a gasket made this very cost effective vs. just the covers that other ...

    Great replacement!

    My differential cover was bent outward, causing a leak. I tried hammering and clamping, but to no avail. This cover is the cheapest I could find. It is also the only chrome one I found, as well as the only one that comes with a new gasket, not to mention the new bolts! This is MUCH thicker than the OE cover, too.

    Perfect Fit

    Quality Dif cover for a great price. Perfect fit - cover, bolts and gasket. Drained and cleaned differential, removed old cover, installed new cover and refilled in just over an hour. Looks good, seals well, no issues. Recommend this cover to all.

    A cheap, good looking diff cover.

    A cheap good looking diff cover. I used plastidip spray on it because i did not want the chrome to rust. It fits great and is lighter then the OEM one. I recommend it :)

    Not so good

    The cover is well made and very thick and heavy. The chrome plating is good quality except around the outer edges where the bolt holes are. The gasket in the kit I received did not match the cover. This was disappointing because the gasket was one of reasons I ordered. I needed to get the car back together over the weekend so because of the gasket issue coulpled with the poor chrome plating that I felt would rust. I reinstalled the original with a new coat of paint.

    Excellent Product

    After a gear change and limit slip installation you have to complete the job. This cover looks cool and fits perfect. The cover came with gasket and new ss capcrews.

    I bent my original differential cover with a jack, causing a leak. This cover looks good and is easy to install, I definitely recommend this product.
