Hey, guys. Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com here with this Yukon Gear DuraGrip Posi rear diff for 28 spline 7.5 rears, or to break it down, '79 to'85 V8s and '86 to 2010 V6 Mustangs. This Posi unit from Yukon Gear is going to be a good option for the guys out there with a seven-five rear that are looking to replace their diff with an upgraded one that is a stronger, true Posi unit. This diff has composite discs and requires the use of 28 spline axles, which means that you don't have to upgrade over the factory units. This diff will get your car away from one wheel burnouts and give you a solid upgrade that's going to hold up better to more aggressive driving. There are a couple of reasons to change or upgrade your differential. The first one is to move to a true Posi unit, so you have a consistent dual wheel spin instead of a single wheel spin. Another thing to consider is maybe you've got a stock diff and it's just getting old and chattering, or maybe you plan on hitting the drag strip and you've got some power that you'd like to cleanly get to the ground. But no matter what your reason is, this Yukon Gear diff is upgraded and it's slightly beefed up, and it's a quick solution to help you get power to the pavement through a true LSD setup. If we take a step back for a minute, the point of a limited slip differential, or LSD like this one here, is to allow both rear wheels to put power to the ground and get better traction to both rear wheels. So the thought is, if there's any type of open diff transfer or uneven transfer of power and torque to one particular wheel over the other that'll create a useless wheel spin where the car loses it's forward momentum, the LSD is designed to eliminate that spin. It'll transfer the torque of both rear wheels evenly, which will have a few benefits in both street and track applications. This means a stable differential lock pattern that won't fail due to the upgraded components, no slipping, more durability, gentle transitions and even a quiet operation. I'm saying that this diff is a heavy duty diff because of features like the nodular case. The case is constructed from nodular iron, but more importantly, this diff also has forged 4320 steel internals and composite clutches. These are upgraded items that mean the diff will be dependable under aggressive driving, and in more of a heavy duty performance life. This also means a longer life span. The composite discs that I'm talking about here are the discs that are in the clutch pack, and the clutch pack is what activates the LSD. And more specifically, the clutch plates create the locking performance of the LSD that I spoke about earlier, so it's important that they will hold up to the spinning [SP] end. Like I mentioned earlier, this diff is going to require the use of 28 spline axles, which is the spline count that the 7.5 rear comes from the factory with, so you aren't looking at having to upgrade your axles with this diff, which is nice. It's one less expense that you'll be facing when you're ready to move up to a diff like this. This is going to work for cars with a solid axle setup, and you'll need to reuse or grab a new seven-five rear gear set. This does not come with new aftermarket rear gears. One other note would be the recommended use of 75W90 rear gear oil, since this'll give you the same oil weight as factory, and you're going to need three quarts of that and four quarts of friction modifier for the initial fill. When it comes to price, this rear diff is going to cost just over $400. It's actually one of the only two rear diffs for the seven-five rear that are currently available on this site, and it's a little more wallet-friendly of the two options. There is always the other option of upgrading to an eight-eight rear and 31 spline axles if you have the torque and power to justify that, but that's most likely going to be a little bit more expensive depending on which setup you choose to go with, and considering the other items that you'll need to make the switch complete. As far as the install, you're going to need some experience with this one. You need a few different wrenches and sockets, but an impact gun is going to help you speed things up here, even though you can do this install with all manual tools if you wish. A lift would also really help and you're going to need a torque wrench to do this properly. Another thing to consider here are proper tools like a dial indicator, bearing pullers and press, pinion nut socket, ring gear bolt socket and items along those lines just to avoid any part damage. You're looking at about four hours time and a three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Going over a general install, you're going to need to get to the diff itself, so this means pulling the rear wheels, dropping the rear brake assemblies, and draining and removing the rear diff and cover, so you'll need something to drain into. The axles will need to be pulled out of the diff, and the diff will need to be removed. The shims that are on each side of the diff bearings will need to be installed the exact same way, so keep track of those. You're looking at some diff assembly adjustments, such as pinion depth, pinion bearing preload, backlash and carrier bearing preload, and also some seal prep. Then you'll have a pinion trial assembly, an initial carrier assembly, followed by adjusting the backlash. And backlash is the amount of ring gear that can rotate forward and backwards when the pinion gear cannot move. Now this is obviously a quick overview of the install, but I wanted to give you guys an idea of what it would take so you can make a decision as to if you wish to install this for yourself or take it to a shop. Wrapping things up here, Yukon Gear Posi rear diff is a seven-five rear diff that gives you an LSD setup with composite discs that's going to use with 28 spline axles. It's an upgrade over the factory diff, and this diff is a good option for those looking for a maintenance replacement or those looking for something to make sure that you can get some extra torque planted squarely to the ground. And you can check it out some more right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Duragrip Posi Differential. Stop doing those ridiculous and humiliating one wheel burn outs by upgrading to a Yukon 7.5in 28 Spline Duragrip Posi Differential from AmericanMuscle. A Limited Slip Differential (LSD) sometimes referred to as a "Posi" will allow both rear wheels to plant the power to the pavement giving you better traction and more impressive burnouts.

For normal driving conditions we recommend you use 75W 90 rear gear oil. This will give you the same oil weight as factory. For colder temps or race use try 75w 140.

i have a 2010 v6. i would like to replace my differential, would i need anything in addition to this? what kind of gears would i need?

MartinG

  • You will need to reuse your factory 7.5” gear set, or upgrade to a set of our 7.5" rear gears, required for this Limited Slip Differential. However if you're planning on purchasing new gears thats an excellent idea, we do recommend a complete gear install kit and a quality 75W 90 gear oil.

About how much power will this withstand?

Mike

  • The Yukon Gear DuraGrip Posi Rear Differential uses a Nodular Case with Forged 4320 Internals, providing it with a great amount of strength. The axles and axle housing will fail before the differential has issues.

I have a complete rear end out of a 2007 Ranger 7.5 open. Will this fit?

RandyO

  • While the rear end that you have is a Ford product and may be similar to the Mustang, we cannot confirm as this differential only has confirmed fitment for stock Mustang rear ends.

I have a 1999 V6 which will soon be undergoing a complete overhaul using all new performance parts. I'll most likely be getting around 340 to 350 hp to the wheels when finished. Will this part be able to withstand that kind of power coming from the modded 3.8L?

If I got axles from an ford stock 8.8 would they work with this differential?

DamienR

  • They would not as this rear differential is 7.5. You will need to match the rear differential size to the rear axles.

    Must for V6's

    When I first bought my Mustang I overlooked the fact that it had an open differential. Many (older) trucks have open diffs and perform fine, so why shouldn't the mustang? Wrong. I think that this should be one of the first mods any 05-10 v6 owners should consider. I no longer have to worry about my car being tail happy, doing the one wheel peel off the line, or being extra careful on wet/uneven surfaces. My performance has improved drastically, especially coupled with 3.73 gears. If you're tired of spinning one tire or take your car to the track this is a must!

    Yukon Posi Rear Diff

    Great posi unit. I paired these with 3.73 gears from Yukon as well. I do have to say it let's u lay the rubber to the ground like nothing else. I have not yet tried to leave dual burnouts but my guess is ull get more grab and go then you will squeel and stay. All in all I'm so glad I bought this with the 3.73 gears.

    At first I didn't think that this part would make a big difference but I did! You get such a faster launch off the line than ever before. This paired with some 4.10 ford racing gears will have you showing the GT's that you are just as good as them! Oh and you can't forget about being about to do the TWO wheel burnouts now! Simple awesome

    Installed this beauty along with my Motive Performance Plus 4.10 Gears (05-10 V6). I gotta tell ya, I is a game changer. Goodbye to the ridiculous fishtailing when there's a few snow flurries on the road. Get's that power right down there where it's supposed to be. Sounds corny but, after installing this LSD I can feel the road under me better, more control in the turns and it kicks off much better than it ever did before. Totally worth the money.
