Anyone in the San Diego area have 3.73 gears installed? Who did you have do it, do they whine, and how much did you pay? Also, did you use the FRPP Install Kit: M-4210-B1?

Thanks,
Jason

For about the same price you can order an axle from Ford with 3.73s (KR axle), with the same clutch material and you'll know its good to go from the start. Would just take an afternoon on the lift to swap in. Just another option.

Don't have the thread at hand, but it was on team shelby with the PNs and info.

hmmmm...I'll try to look into the axle idea. I suppose i could do that on base myself. The issue with that would be the shipping/freight costs.

I'll shoot JBA an email. I'm still in Iraq right now, just planning everything out for my return.

Thanks for the replies.

I just bought the whole axle. Someone on the team shelby site verified that it has the proper bearings. Ended up being about $1080 with shipping. Got mine from summit racing.

Oh, and yes, they whine, but I have the Griggs torque arm which kinda limits your options for angling the pinion. Don't care though. 3.73's are magic and with the Griggs kit I can keep the wheels on the ground.
