Confused About Traction Lock
Hi everyone. I recently purchased some Ford Racing 3.73 gears (8.8 rear) because they happened to be on sale at a local speed shop. However, currently my car has an 8.8 open rear... What i am very confused about is which carriers work with this car. I understand that you can make/modify a mustang carrier to work, but i would rather have a straight forward install. Therefore i have read many recommendations of obtaining an SC carrier and rebuilding it... However, could i just buy a brand new traction lock unit for a 96 T-bird? Would i need to modify anything else or buy any extra parts by purchasing a brand new unit from ford?
So far what i understand is that this is what's needed for the gear install...
1. 3.73 Gears (acquired)
2. T-lock differential (up in the air as to which part i need)
3. 21 tooth speedometer gear
4. Ford Racing Gear install kit
Is there anything that i am missing there? Also do i need a tune with the use of the 3.73's (currently have 3.27's). Thank you all again for any help you can provide.
