1970 Mustang Rear End Components

Rear Axle

It is common for tuned classic Mustangs to be putting down 400, 500 and even more horsepower. And, when you think about how all of that power is being funneled through your car’s rear end, you want to make sure that it’s solid and reliable. A Mustang enthusiast wants to avoid any power losses. After all, why work so hard building a powerful competition Mustang with incredible power levels if you’re going to waste that power through a loose, shoddy rear end? Upgrading your rear axle and differential is worth considering if you want your 1970 Mustang to drive to its maximum capacity.

1970 Rear Axle

Your Mustang Rear End Contains Many Parts

The term “rear end” generally refers to the rear axle set-up in a rear-wheel drive car such as your 1970 Mustang. This includes several different major components, each made up of many individual parts:

• The rear differential transmits the power from your driveshaft 90 degrees to the axle shafts.
• The ring-and-pinion gear set are housed in the differential.
• The axle shafts carry the rotation of the differential out to the wheels.

Added to these parts are the various mounts, seals and retainers that combine to make up a complete rear end package. Every one of these parts will be showing wear after years of use. If you’re rebuilding your stock Mustang or adding more power and a sturdier transmission, upgrading your rear end is a necessity.
