I think i have decided on changeing to a 3.25 rear end but i cant find the ring and pinion gears for an 8 incher. i looked in jegs, summit, and a few other random places. Does anyone know where i can find them at a good price?

Try this:
CURRIE ENTERPRISES 714-528-6957.
The whole 8'' third member w/ limited slip is $870 and you have a choice of many ratios. Or, you can get ring and pinion for 189.95 (I think this is each).

I agree that Currie's is good. However I believe an equally excellent vendor is Randy's Ring and Pinion (800) 292-1031 or (800) 347-1188 in Washington. I checked with both and actually got a better price from Randy's when I got a 3.25 ratio with limited slip for my 9"

Check their web site

http://www.ring-pinion.com

They have some useful tech info there.

I did this search for my 66. The 3.25 gear-set is not made anymore, I checked with all the noted gear companies. I found mine in the bone yard. I think it was out of a falcon 8". It was a lucky find because the guy said they are pretty rare. I really like this ration with the four speed.

Matt - I added a 3.25 posi setup to my fastback, which has a toploader 4 speed. It was originally a 3.00, but had been changed to a 2.80 open.
I think the 3.25s are a good ratio, as they will help you off the line but not rev you too high on the highway.
I believe you can find 3.25s in Mustang II 8" rears. Glenn / MrGEM was nice enough to look for some for me last year. Give him a PM as I think he can give you the rear end codes so you know what to scout for. Good luck ! Dickson

Dickson's correct. The best place to find one (or a 3.40) is under a V6 Mustang II. Even some Pinto wagons used them. I'll have to dig around for the proper axle codes, but they're fairly common in Mustang IIs.

I sent you a "private message", but realized since I never check mine you may not also.

I am in Irvine, not far from you, and have a spare 3.25 (8") pumkin. It is out of our long gone '64 Falcon Futura vert. I already have 3.25 (9") gears in my '67 vert. Don't want it, it hurts my toes when I kick it, I need the room, I don't even want the plastic bucket it is in... etc.

Hemmings Motor News always has vendors listed that can get you either the gear set or a whole new pumpkin. An open rear is pretty cheap and a posi (tractionlock) is about half of the Curie price. But there are usually no warranties. I have had great luck with 3.40 used tractionlocks. If you dont want to go to the magazine news stand, go to www.hemmings.com.
