1971 Mustang Differentials

Differentials
The most important component of your 1971 Mustang’s rear axle is its differential. The differential is the mastermind of your Mustang, particularly in the rear end — it controls everything related to your driveshaft. Without one, you’re not going to be able to turn your wheels, which means you won’t be driving anywhere anytime soon. Here’s the thing: Differentials are not created equal. Some are better than others when it comes to slippery conditions. Others, particularly the latest generation of differentials, use a Torsen mechanism to accurately apply torque to the wheels that need it. Whatever your differential needs may be, CJ Pony Parts is here to help!

How 1971 Mustang Differentials Work

Your Mustang’s differential is connected via a ring gear to the end of the driveshaft at an input pinion. This gear, in turn, connects to a cage that spins the side gears, and, consequently, the two half axles. But only when you’re driving in a straight line.

When you begin to turn the wheel, more gears leap into action to handle the varying speeds your wheels are experiencing throughout the duration of the turn. There are a few different types of differentials, including open differentials, limited-slip differentials, and Torsen differentials.
