  • Rear ends....

    I just got my '98 Mustang back from a maintenance check up. The mechanic found fine metallic particles in the differential, which explains the slight 'roaring' I began hearing a few weeks ago. Silly me thought it was a bad U-joint. Fortunately(???) he says a replacement rearend won't be TOO expensive.

    It's always something, huh?

    BTW...sorry to disappoint all you guys...AND gals...that hoped this was a 'sex thread'.

    Hey, Shooter -- I'm looking into getting a Mustang next summer. You've got a stick shift, right? How is the handling and visibility? I'm really looking forward to a 6-cyl engine over the 4-cyl I've got now. (And I'm keeping my Jeep, so I won't be "Crazy in a Ford").

        Crazy...

        I love the Ford V-6-equipped Mustang with a stick! The stick throw is SHORT and almost 'automatic'. The power:weight ratio is PERFECT for a car this size! The car is VERY responsive. Visability is excellent. My daughter has a 2001 Mustang and is only 4'11". She can see fine in her car.

        If you get a chance to drive one, do it. You'll swear there's a 302 under the hood.

          Shooter, I'm already drooling!

          UBB code hates me.

          Okay, I tried to get this into one of those cute links (to the results of a Carmax search for Mustangs ...), but it didn't work (because UBB is the product of SATAN!)

          I hate UBB. Thanks for trying, FLLawdog!

              I thought you were talking about different rear ends too.

                Since it don't cost that much to fix it, I'd drive it 'til it quits. You'd be surprised how long it may last. That "metal shavings" isn't written in stone.

                  The 'roaring' is VERY distracting...and I'm trading/selling it in December, so....might as well fix it.

                    Shooter, does the roaring go away in fourth gear?

                      Aw just throw a little sawdust in the differential. You won't hear the roaring so loud then!

                        MikeTX...

                        The roaring starts...and continues...from around 25MPH and up. It does NOT cease in 4th OR 5th....

                          Isn't there like an Alan Jackson song that has a lyric that goes like "I'm crazy about a mercury" or something along the lines of it..

                            a mustang with a 6? agh! choke. gag. vomit. faint.



                            I think I hav e a Ford 8.8" rear and a Ford 9" rear lying around in the garage from my modified mustang days (back when I had an LX 5.0 used just to experiment with different bolt ons..heh)

                            if your car has either or, let me know, you can have it. just pay shipping, as i have no use for it. then just pay the guy to put it in.
