With this kit, you can get your gear installation completed quickly and easily.

Ford Racing Friction Modifier

Ford Racing friction modifier is a specially formulated additive to provide smooth operation of clutch-type, limited-slip differentials. One bottle of friction modifier is required when changing the gear oil in rear ends equipped with Ford traction-lock units.

Royal Purple Max-Gear Oil

Royal Purple Max-Gear gear oil is ultra-tough automotive gear oil. It’s designed to maximize power and provide unsurpassed protection to heavily loaded gears. It makes gears run smoother, quieter, cooler, and longer without overhauls. Max-Gear outperforms other gear oils because it combines the highest quality synthetic oils with Royal Purple’s proprietary Synslide additive technology.

Installation Note

  • Although the Royal Purple gear oil has a friction modifier mixed in, it is still recommended that you use the bottle of Ford Performance friction modifier to supply your 8.8 rear ends with the proper amount of modifier.
  • PVTKF8.8-B 2012 GT500 high-torque rear pinion bearings are included as an Upgrade for Factory Components and works on all 1986-2014 Mustang 8.8 differentials.
  • LMR recommends the 75W140 viscosity for all 1986-2014 8.8" differentials as it is appropriate for most climates, fuel economy, and performance.
