1970 Mustang Differentials


While a high-performance engine and quick-shifting transmission are necessary when building up a competition Mustang, a little thought should be put into the differential as well. That is where you’re transferring the rotation of your driveshaft outwards down your axle shafts and to the tires. Stock components on even a well-treated classic 1970 Mustang will be showing wear after all of these years. And, let’s be honest, there’s a good chance that a fun rear-wheel-drive pony car has had more than its fair share of burn-outs and high-speed runs! To make sure that your differential is up to the task of delivering the power your custom Mustang can put out, take a look at the CJ Pony Parts differentials and differential components.

1970 Differentials

Rebuild or Complete Unit?

As with many classic automotive projects, the choice is to drop in a complete differential or rebuild one using individual components. The choice really comes down to a few factors:

• What is your end goal? Can your performance needs be met by a pre-packaged differential, or do you need to pick and choose the components to get the exact specifications you want?
• What are your mechanic skills like? Do you have the experience, tools and patience to do a rebuild? Is it important to know that you built it yourself, or do you want to get back on the road as fast as possible?
• Do you have any future upgrades planned? Do you just need to repair your faulty differential today with a few new parts and aim to do a full upgrade sometime in the future?

Ask yourself these questions, and your answers should help guide you towards a “custom” differential build or a complete drop-in unit.
