Ask a Question

Would this be able to fit in a 99-04 V6?


  • This differential will not fit a 99-04 V6 Mustang, as they are equipped with 7.5" differentials. To utilize this differential it would require an 8.8" differential and the associated components such as the carrier, axles, etc.


Helpful (0)

Which weight gear oil is recommended with this differential and should I Use synthetic or non synthetic?


  • We recommend using 75w90 rear gear oil as it is the same oil weight as the factory. If you are using this in colder temperatures, we recommend switching to 75w140. Also, synthetic oil is always better than non synthetic especially for the rear gears.

Is a Friction modifier needed? I know the OEM differentials require a friction modifier, does the Yukon need the same added to it?


  • Not if you use Royal Purple. If you use Mobile 1 or anything else, yes.

    awesome product and awesome price!!!

    I broke the spider gears in my 2012 GT differential. I debated over the Yukon vs. the Eaton, but after talking with many dealers, I found that they are pretty much built with the same design. After the install, it seems to be working great with no noise or problems. I would highly recommend this product based on the fact that its an upgrade over ford traction lok without a large price difference.

    Got around 670 street miles and 2 trips to the track before this thing exploded. Took a bunch of pics and sent to Yukon, their support was awful. They may make great stuff for trucks but I'll never use a Yukon again. 670rwhp ProCharged E85 '13 - in just a couple months I'm buying a new diff, gear set, bearings, and paying shop labor to do this again, do yourself a favor and find another product.

    i had blown my original LSD while having fun, installed this with some issue due to me but once that went away and i broke it in, phenomenal product. installed and had a solid feel of the rear end and grip!! Not to aggressive for street but aggressive enough to hold it's own!
