you will notice more of a kick off the line. mine has wheel hop and gains traction in a second or too even with my rebuilt trac-lok. all you have to do is just ease on the pedal for the most effeciancy *sp*

if you do go to 3.73's yes i would upgrade the driveshaft while your at it. just look for a mark 8 in the local junkyard and pull out an alluminum one piece driveshaft out of it. make sure its out of a 93 and that its a one peice. then get that sucker high speed balanced. i had drivetrain vibration when i used my stock driveshaft swapping to 3.73's.

also if your car doesnt have trac-lok *fords limited slip* then i would wait to get a rear end that has trac-lok like off a mark 8 again seeing how they are all alluminum and weigh 20lbs lighter than our stock ones. make sure its limited slip.

and last but not least look into a j-mod *custom shift kit* and a tranny cooler. i did 3.73's/jmod/ecu tune and it was a DIFFERENT car lol
