Besides the junkyard... I was wondering if anyone knew of a manufacturer that would make those or have some NOS items in stock.

The most I've seen for the 8" goes from 3.00 to 3.55...
Wish I could be of more help but 8" stuff is getting rare..

Does anyone have a set of gears (3.25 for 8 in) that they'd be willing to part with for a reasonable price?

Try some of the major gear amnufacturers.
Summit sells 3.55, 3.80, 4.11 nad 4.56 8" ring and pinions.
I have a 3.40 right now, with a Detroit locker laying in the garage.
Maybe 3.80 gears and the locker would make a good combo in my '69....

How do your 3.40's do on the highway? Is it pretty driveable? I'm going to be commuting to and from College, that's why I was looking for a set of 3.25's. I heard they were a good compromise (highway driveable, good performance).

FoMoCo never produced a 3.25 ratio for an 8 inch. Try Precision or US Gear.

OK here's one http://www.precisiongear.com/
You'll have to fend for yourself on the other.

Well, the 3.40s are worse than the 3.00 as far as mileage, but FAR better as far as acceleration goes.
Wanna buy the gear set and I'll get the 3.80s?

Ford made a 3.20 for the 8 inch which is obviously very close to a 3.25.They shouldn't be that hard to find .I.ve got a 66 mustang and a 63 falcon that both have them.

I thought the 3:20 in 66 was a 6 cyl rear. Someone is makeing those gears as my monthly newsletter from Mustangs Plus show an 8" trac-lok with 3;25 gears. IT IS A COMPLETE UNIT.

All of my FoMoCo code books and my memory show a 3.20 gear for the 7.25 Falcon Spicer type rear only, not the 8 inch. 3.00 and 3.40 in early cars yes. 3.20 or 3.25 no.

The rearend in my falcon is out of a 63 Falcon 4 door, 260 v8 with a 3 in the tree standard.The 66 mustang was originaly a six cylinder but someone put all the v-8 suspension parts on it but these are both 8 inchers and the Falcon for sure was original.
