    5 Stars   Exceptional Quality
    By on 4/13/2014
    If you have a standard I would highly recommend going with 3.73's. I was debating between them and 4.10's for my Black 99 GT. I'm very happy with my decision. at 70 mph it runs about 2,300 RPM's and at 60 mph it is right on 2,000 RPM's. My Stang pulls so much harder and smoother now through every gear. Highly recommended!!!!

    Had a shop install these 3.73 gears on my 1995 GT recently, and it has made a huge difference in acceleration! If you are doing this gear ratio or higher, make sure to buy an aluminum driveshaft and a performance pinion flange, too. Otherwise, you may experience more gear howl and driveline vibrations, which are something that you really don't want (it has to do with driveline critical speed). Got all the parts right here at LMR - couldn't ask for a better site!

    5 Stars   Nice and Quiet
    By on 3/15/2015
    I changed from a 3.08 to the 3.73 gears, as with all of the Ford Racing parts I have purchased these are great quality. I set the pinion depth and gear backlash factory spec with new bearings and seals. After the install the gears are so quiet you don't even know they're there. Granted I am a Ford service tech with access to all the factory tools. If your looking for a gear with great quality these are the ones, not to mention the car is quicker off the line.

    Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

    5 Stars   Love the 3.73s
    By on 9/25/2016
    Just had them installed in place of my stock 2.73s. Huge improvement and you just have to laugh as to why you would even keep the stock gears. Car was a blast to drive home even though I was easy on it. Huge improvement and worth it. Should have done this on day one not after 11 years of owning the car.
