    Features & Details

    • Ultimate Rebuild Kit
    • Essential on 60,000+ Mile 'Stangs
    • Ideal for Rebuilds or Gear Swaps
    • Includes All Bearings & Seals
    • Fits Ford 7.5" Rear End
    Install or Rebuild. If you're installing new gears or rebuilding your 7.5" rear on your Mustang, a Bearing kit contains everything you need to make the job easy and worry-free. This kit contains everything you need to make installing new gears a straightforward process for yourself or your installer and ensures a long life for your differential.

    Extra Insurance. If you're installing new gears, a Bearing kit is extra insurance against future problems. Any Mustang can benefit from fresh hardware in the differential to ensure your gears perform flawlessly. However it is highly recommended to add this kit to your new gears for any Mustang with over 60,000 miles, since your differential's hardware is probably worn down and you can combine labor costs to save money.

    Includes Bearings.
    Unlike other installation kits which include gaskets, seals, and hardware but no bearings, this Bearing Kit includes bearings for peace of mind, extra insurance, and superior differential performance.

    Ultimate Kit. This kit has all the components of the Installation Kit, including pinion seals, gaskets, hardware, marking compound and brush, and even Loctite. It also includes the front and rear pinion bearing and the differential bearings.

    Application. This Bearing Kit is designed for all 1979 to 2010 Mustangs with the 7.5" rear end.

    Fitment: 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 Details

            High quality shims and bearings. National seals, best in the business. Motive rear end kits BEST bang for your buck, and I am a commercial part's manager for " @and¥ ^€= Auto Parts".

            Good enough to get the job mostly done

            When the Yukon limited slip differential was installed, the shop bill showed $14 and change for additional parts, which is small potatoes. This kit helped the mechanic get the job done.

            Very disappointed!

            These bearings are not great if you don't want your rear end to whine. There aren't enough shims to get the job done either, had to buy additional shims. Very unhappy.

            Great kit

            Great kit but would be nice if it came with one more crush sleeve. It does have everything I would get it again if I can gears again.

            Had Everything I needed

            Had everything I needed to install my gears I just wish that the shims had thicknesses marked on them. I probably could have used fewer, thicker shims on the carrier had the thicknesses been marked on them.

            Great bearing kit

            I got this kit to install new 3.73 gears.This kit is great everything you need to rebuild rear end the only thing it doesn't come with is axle bearings and seal have to order or get from local parts store. Take time setting backlash and make sure chime correctly

            The cover to the rear gearbox didnt fit so we just used the silicon to hold it and it worked

            Good Enough To Get the Job Done

            My installer told me it was a pretty good rebuild kit but he complained about the shims not fitting right, had to reuse the old ones and the paper gasket is complete junk! The actual bearings are Koyo so that was very good, indeed.

            Motive Rear End Installation and Bearing Kit

            I changed the gears out on my fox to 3.73s. The factory bushings and bearings were completely worn and destroyed. I highly recommend this kit for anyone who is replacing the gears.

            Good package however...

            I bought this package along with 3.73 gears for my 7.5 rear end however the gasket that was in the package was for a 8.8. AM normally never makes these sort of mistakes though I planned on not using the paper gasket anyway. The kit was very well put together with everything needed to complete the install. I would recommend it to anyone changing their gear ratio and suggest rebuilding the diff with new spider and side gears unless you plan on installing a LSD. Thank you AM great product!

            Great kit!!

            I have recently used this bearing kit on my 7.5 28 spline mustang rear axle. It's a good buy and has most of essential s you will need. The only thing that I would like to see are some c-clips and a oil slinger washer in this kit....

            Well worth the money!

            I added these gears as well as the LSD from Auburn and *WOW!!! It's a Night and Day difference indeed! It's quick and makes the drive through (and around) city traffic much more enjoyable.
