      Video Review & Installation

      Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with my breakdown of the Motive rear end installation and bearing kit for all Mustangs with 8.8 rears, or in other words, all '86 to '14 V8s and '11 to '14 V6s. Ford's 8.8 rears are as stout as can be, almost the 9 inch of our generation. But, any time you're pulling the rear apart, whether you're just changing your rear gears or doing some maintenance on a higher mileage vehicle, it makes sense to install new seals and bearings while the housing is apart. It's never a good idea to redo a rear end using original bearings and bolts.Before I get too far into laying this kit out for you guys, I want to take a closer look at the brand, Motive. Motive Gear has been offering some of the highest quality drivetrain components on the market today for quite some time. You can find their logo on many drag cars including a large handful of Mustangs that participate in any major racing series, including the NMRA, NMCA, and NHRA.This Motive rear end install and bearing kit includes all of your bearings, seals, shims, and bolts, even down to the gear marking compound and Loctite. If you didn't know already, starting in 2010 Ford changed the inner rear gear pinion bearing in the 8.8 rear. This means that all of you 2010 and up owners will need a new 8.8 pinion bearing for proper installation which can be selected from the drop down menu on the product page at americanmuscle.com. Click below to head back to the site if you aren't already there to see what I'm talking about.Installing this kit requires a higher level of mechanical expertise or even the help of a professional. If you're not familiar with setting backlash and pinion depth then I would recommend having a professional install this kit. In fact, a lot of our customers are letting us know that they did just that. They purchased the kit and had a professional install it to make sure that the proper gear mesh pattern was established. If you are tackling this job yourself, you're probably looking at about four hours of install time which can be made easier with the use of a lift and all of the proper tools necessary. But, it can still be done with the use of a jack and some stands. If you guys have any questions about this kit or the install, you can always reach out to a Mustang expert at any time.If you're installing some new rear gears or freshening up your Mustang that has some good mileage on it, you definitely need to check out the Motive rear end install and bearing kit for your 8.8 equipped V8 or V6 Mustang available here at americanmuscle.com.

      Description

      Everything Needed to Rebuild 8.80-Inch Rear End. When you're installing new gears in your Mustang's rear differential, it just makes sense to install new seals and bearings while the housing is apart. This is particularly true if your pony has more than 60,000 miles on it. It ensures against the need for another costly teardown and rebuild.

      Attention 2010 and Newer Mustang Owners. Starting in 2010 Ford changed the inner rear gear pinion bearing in all 8.80-inch equipped Mustangs. With that in mind, you will require a new 8.80-inch rear gear pinion bearing (Ford part# 9L3Z-4630-A) for proper installation.

      Application. This Motive Bearing Kit is designed for use in Mustangs that have an 8.80-inch rear end differential.
