1986-2014 Mustang SVE Performance 8.8 Rear Axle Differential Cover Upgrade Kit
Improve the strength and support of the 8.8 rear axle in your 1986-2014 Mustang with help from SVE's premium differential cover! The flimsy factory differential cover utilizes a stamped steel construction that is prone to flexing under heavy loads. To prevent this, SVE stepped up to the plate and manufactured this problem-solving differential cover. Whether on the track or street, SVE's differential cover will add strength to your differential by increasing housing rigidity and reducing flex in the main bearings. Extensive flex on these bearings can cause the ring and pinion gear to mesh incorrectly, creating unwanted wear and eventually the infamous gear whine. To prevent this flex, this cover features adjustable load bolts to properly pre-load the main bearing caps and give your differential the proper support it requires! Striving for a complete solution, SVE includes everything you need to change this cover including a LubeLocker differential cover gasket, 2 quarts of 75w-140 Royal Purple Max-Gear gear oil, and 1 bottle of Motorcraft fiction modifier.

SVE Quality
SVE's 8.8 differential cover has been thoroughly researched to ensure long-lasting performance and durability. Constructed with high-quality aluminum that's CNC machined for a precision fit, this diff cover is built to last. SVE's robust differential cover not only improves strength and support but also adds convenient drain and fill plugs for easy maintenance! Completed in a bare finish and etched with SVE's signature logo, this differential cover will be sure to look as good as it performs for years to come. New differential cover bolts are included for a quick and easy installation. Tighten up your rear end and prolong the life of your ring and pinion with SVE's 8.8 rear differential cover!
