    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 Motive 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 Motive 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, the Motive Bearing Kit includes bearings for peace of mind, extra insurance, and superior differential performance.

    Ultimate Kit. This kit has all the components of the Motive 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 Motive 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

      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

      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.

      Lousy installation kit

      The only thing that actually fit was the bearings.All the shams were either two large or too small in diameter. Therefore I could not use one I had to make all my shims.

      Rear end Bearing Kit

      It is worth the money and a must have. You always want to swap out the old for new when opening the rear end.

      I purchased a LSD from someone who had it sitting in their garage, and this package came with all the bearings that were needed to go with the LSD and all the proper sealants and parts required to properly install a new LSD and Gears.
