What kind of driving do you do? Most people go with 3.73s for around town, stock 3.31s for highway and 3.55 for 50/50 each way. Of course, 3.73s will provide the best acceleration though.

I should have been more specific, 3.55s were a stock when ordered as a option.

I have never seen any optional gear sets listed as something available from the Ford assy. line, only 3.31 as the standard install for 2007-2009 GT500 with no rear gear options, Track Packs etc. for those years.

The only Ford dealership sold GT500 that had a gear set that was not 3.31 was the 2008/09 GT500KR with the 3.73. <<Was that a Bullitt rear axle assy.? or did the Bullitt come with 3.55's, I don't remember........
