        I understand that when using this kit I will have to remove the ring gear from the carrier to remove the spring, is that correct. If so will the ring and pinion gears have to be reset.

        • The Ford Performance Traction - LOK Rebuild Kit - 8.8 in. will require the ring and pinion to be removed. You must check clearances once everything is installed to ensure it will work properly.

        this kit states that it works for 31 and 28 spline axles, but the metal discs that grab the axle shaft splines should either work for one or the other. and the picture shows a metal disc with 24 splines... there is a discrepancy here and im curious as to which axle shaft this kit would work for. Unless this kit does not include the medal splined discs i dont understand how this works for both...

        • The splined part of the disc in the Ford Performance Traction LOK Rebuild Kit does not ride on the axle and therefore will work with both 31 & 28 splined axles. If they did ride on the axles, they would indeed need to have the matching spline count as the axle being used.

        01 GT auto Is my 01 gt auto supposed to be spinning only one wheel? if so can I use this kit to make it spin both with the same lsd? or even the carbon disc 31 spline with a 28 spline s spring? Thanks - Brad

        • No you gt isnt supposed to be a one tire fryer. Rebuilding the trac-lok will solve this problem for approximately 50k miles depending on driving habits, environment, etc. If you get a completely new carrier that is for 31 spline you will need new axles due to stock came with 28 spline.

            Easy to install. Perfect fit. No fus at all I recommend also changing wheel axel bearings as spider gears while you are in there. Not fun removing diff.

            Early replacement

            I replaced them early since I was replacing every race, bearing, seal, and the ring and pinion. So I can't tell if I've noticed a difference or not since they weren't bad.

            adequate at best

            Didn't notice any gain in performance. friction discs were just as thick as the stock ones in there with 100k miles. wasn't as much material as OEM either. at least I know its new.

            Great quality for cheap

            I installed these clutches in my driveway, it was difficult because it was my first time but the process itself is not too hard. After i installed them i no longer have a one wheel peel, nor does my diff make a horrible hypoid gear noise. These are great for people on a budget

            Works Great

            It is current Ford production clutches and steel with Ford Racing sticker slapped over current box. Good thing, it is cheaper than over the counter dealer part and comes with additive and pin bolt. I'm a ASE Master tech. The install is easy with the proper repair info tools and skills. If you don't have all 3 then I suggest take it to a certified repair shop or you will have less than desired results

            Great product and great price

            Resurrected an 88 mustang gt that was sitting for 10 years went to do axle bearings and found the cross pin bolt was broke off in the carrier so addressed that issue by removing the carrier just to find out my frictions were burnt through, ordered the ford racing trac-lok kit had it back together in no time, I used the factory stacking method and shimed it out to .030" feels nice and tight

            Rebuild rear end

            Doing a total replacement of drivetrain (except motor) in 95 Cobra and changed rear gears to 3.73's. Put the Traction-LOK kit while inside the rear end and not sure of the difference by itself, but the rear end really hooks up and had no problems at the track. Install in this was less than an hour, since everything was already apart.

            Trac lok rebuild kit

            everything is as pictured. The kit comes with several different sizes of shims so should fit your car. I can't attest to the performance gain since it's February in Mi and the car is garaged at the moment. The clutches were original in my car with 180,000 miles. I bought the mustang last year and had the one wheel peel, so this was on the list to repair. The job wasn't to difficult if you know your way around with wrenches.

            Had the traction lock kit installed and it works as it should. My son left 2 stripes about 100 feet long on the asphalt leaving my mechanics house. I'd say it worked well.
