8.8 rear end

  1. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Hi guys, I have a 2005 v6 and I have lately been looking at 8.8 rear ends. I found a complete 8.8 rear end from a 1991 5.0 and was wondering if I could use this on mine. I read somewhere that they were universal and also that the 1991 8.8 use a 28 spline and the 2005 v6 does too, if that helps...

    Installing a new Ford Motorsports ring and pinion I have come up with the following pictures and .003 backlash.

    Originally I wanted to tlock and get 3.73's on my 7.5" axle, but I have been reading and it looks like people say its better to just do an axle swap. So I was wondering, would this axle just swap in with no adapters or anything? 79-98 Axle Assembly, 8.8"" 3.73:1 28-Spline Traction-Lok at LRS -...
