Installation of your new ring and pinion gears should always be done by a
mechanic with a good working knowledge of rear end gears! We put together
this how to installation video to help walk you through the install

questions you should be asking and what to look for in the installation!
Changing your rear end gear ratio will require you to recalibrate your
speedometer. For 83-95 Fox Body and SN95 Mustangs, you will need to replace
your speedometer gear to fix your speedometer. Click the following link to
see our speedometer gear calculator to properly select the correct
speedometer gear - http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/products/Mustang-Speedometer-Gear-Calculator .
If you have a 1996 to present Mustang your best fix is to pick up a
SCT tuning device such as the SF3 handheld tuner to correct your
speedometer. You can see our full line of SCT Tuners and Tech Videos here
- http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/products/Mustang-SCT-Tuners .
When replacing the ring and pinion gears on your Mustang don't forget to pick up a
traction lok clutch repair kit or new traction lock differential. The
clutches in the factory unit wear out over time -- especially with
aggressive driving. Save yourself time and money by replacing these when
installing new rear end gears!!!! See our full line of Mustang Traction Lock Differentials
and Repair Parts here - http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/products/Mustang-Traction-Lock-Differentials
