    Lighter and Stronger. If you're upgrading the rear gears in your Mustang, it's a good idea to replace your wimpy stock Girdle Support System (a.k.a. differential cover). Upgrade with this super strong, light weight SR Performance Aluminum Rear End Differential Cover for additional safety and peace of mind.

    Superior Construction. Made in the USA, this 7.5" Rear End Differential Cover is cast from heat-treated aluminum for strength and features magnetic fill and drain plugs, additional clearance for billet main caps and low gear ratios, and increased fluid capacity for reduced operating temperatures.

    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 SR Performance Aluminum Rear End Differential Cover is designed to fit the 1979 to 2010 Mustangs equipped with 7.5" rear end gears. Most commonly found in V6 models.

    For the V6 S197, a 2006, will a panhard relocation bracket be necessary as it is with the TA Performance 1805 7.5 Ford Girdle?


    • The SR Performance Differential Cover will not require a panhard bar relocation bracket, however the panhard bar will need to be removed during the install to provide clearance to install the differential cover. We do not offer TA Performance Differential covers at this time, so we are unable to directly compare this to the TA Performance item.

    Will this fit a 79 four cylinder rear end that is 7.5?


    • The SR Performance Differential Cover - 7.5 in will fit your 79 foxbody as long as it is equipped with 7.5 rear.

    Will this 7.5" diff cover fit a Fox Body Mustang ('88) with factory rear sway bar? Being that the cover is larger than stock, I was wondering if it will clear the factory sway bar.


    • The Differential Cover - 7.5 in. will fit perfectly fine on your 1988 Fox 2.3L with the factory sway bar installed. You should not have any clearance issues.

    Does this come with the appropriate gasket for the 7.5 rear end?


    • The Differential Cover - 7.5 in. (79-85 V8; 86-10 V6) will not come with the gasket for the 7.5 rear and. The hardware that is included is: (1) One Differential Cover, (10) Ten Bolts, (10) Ten Washers.

    Where do I get a Gasket to fit this differential cover? I bought this item already and also a gear install kit from Motive, for the 7.5 inch, but the gasket in the kit does not line up with the hole on this rear diff cover!


    • This Differential Cover should use any gasket designed for a 7.5" rear end. If you are having issues finding a gasket that fits properly, you can always use silicone sealant. This will work the same as a gasket.

      Great way to get easy access to your gear oil

      This fits perfectly on my 79 mustang 7.5 inch differential and alleviates having to put gear oil in there in an akward location. Took about an hour to take old cover off and new one on but takes longer if you are making your own gasket.

      7.5 Diff Cover

      I am very pleased with this product and feel better about the strength of the rear end in my 05 V6. I definitely had to remove the panhard bar in order to keep from smearing silicone in the gears when I was putting the cover back on. I used permatex ultra black high oil resistance gasket maker with no gasket. When unbolting the panhard bar, I also had to loosen a bolt on the lateral stiffener on the passenger side to get the panhard bar out. Putting it back in, torque the bolts to 129 ft/lbs. I torqued the diff cover bolts to 35 ft/lbs. Very good upgrade.

      Diff cover

      Great for bullet proofing your Diff. You want that extra protection if you spent some money on your rear end.

      looks great

      I wanted to replace my rear diff. cover cause my brother (first owner) has NEVER changed his the gear oil so i figured why not kill two birds with one stone. having to wait 24 hours for the RTV sealant to cure was the only unnerving thing about the installation.

      Great Product

      This product both looks good and makes differential oil changes easier. Instead of having to crack off the cover to drain and fill through the back of the gear housing, you can just use the easily accessed drain and fill plugs. No waiting for new sealant to dry before putting in new oil. Expanded capacity has marginal effects for me, since I never had an issue with my old one overheating, but it certainly can't hurt. Installation is very simple, just make sure to let the new sealant set overnight before filling with oil. This is a great piece if you do a lot of maintenance on your car, race, or just want something a little cleaner looking back there.

      '79 to '11 Ford 7.5 axle girdle

      I like the product. It installed easily on my '93 Ranger. I threw three coats of paint on it to protect it from the roadsalt up here, and it looks and functions much better than the rusted out diff cover I had before. The only thing I wish is that the directions included the new gear oil capacity. I used about 4 quarts after it wasinstalled.
