I just installed a 8in 4:11 posi, mini spool, unit.Should I be concerned about street driving as far as the skidding of one wheel during a tight turn while parking? I could get used to it as long as something is not about to break.A trac loc is just too hard to find

I wouldn't worry about parking, but be ultra-careful driving in the rain. Don't ever give it throttle while cornering.

the problem with the mini spool on the street is it puts a lot of stress on the axels, and it will ruin the tires as they will wear much faster. contact national drive train, they can help you get a good limited slip or locking diff.

Hope most of your driving is in a straight line. Periodically, pull your axles and inspect the splines.

One thing about it... A Mustang doesn't put much weight on your rear tires.. I have a spool in one of my cars and it really gets a lot of attention when pulling into one of those mini-marts with a concrete drive.. It sounds like its spinning the tires even at idle!!

It seems ok,so far.I never drive in the rain if I can help it.I mainly just wanted to try out the 4:11 ratio,which is ok since I have a T-5
