More Than A Gear Installation
Okay i have decided to finally add a set of 3.73's to my 96 4.6 rear end (8.8). I currently have a 3.27 open diff.
It is my understanding that in order to get a traction lock i NEED a unit from an IRS car? Does this mean a cobra differential will work? Or is my only choice to get an actual differential specifically for a t-bird.?
Also a speedometer recalibration tool. What is a good choice for that? I was leaning towards the ford racing recalibration tool just because it IS in fact a ford part. It is my understanding that i will need the recalibration tool WITH a "D" shaped plug.
Lastly what would you recommend for an installation kit? Get one from ford or an aftermarket company?
Please tell me if my understanding and logic is correct. I have been researching on this site for a couple days now, but i want to check that i have all the facts down and in their proper place.
