  1. Rear Ends that bolt up to a 77 cobra??

    Mustang II Tech
    Hi there, I'm in the process of building a 77 cobra, but I need a new rear end. I'm looking for one that I could find somewhat easily (local junk yard or something) that would be an exact or close match to the original in length. I am not opposed to using a rear end from another Ford vehicle, I...
  2. 5 lug swap for foxbody?

    5.0L Tech
    I know there is a ton of posts about this but they are kinda messy and hard for me to find the answer I'm looking for. I want to run 17x10 wheels 5 lug with disc brakes on my rear end. Currently my axle housing is bent so I will need to get either a 8.8 from a fox or from a sn95. If I get a...

    I have found a guy on Craigslist claiming he has a T/C rear end for sale that he ordered back in 1995 and then never used it. but the pic of the rear end looks like a standard mustang rear end with drum brakes.

  8. 1967 Rear End Rebuild\Swap

    Classic Tech
    I picked up a 67 coupe in South Carolina. The place I got it from has a 68 Cougar with a 9 inch rear end. This is my first Ford rebuild so I know little about the 9 inch. He says it will bolt right up but I want to verify that. The other question I have is its configuration. Since I've worked...

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey guys, about a week ago I noticed my drive train making a roaring, whine noise that seems to be coming from the rear end and makes it sound almost like bigger tires on a jeep.

    4.6L Tech
    My 2004 Mustang GT has a whine/humming sound coming from the rear end only under slight acceleration or when holding a steady speed.

    Classic Tech
    So took the car on the freeway for the first time since the steering issue. Got going about 60 mph and I got this wicked vibration.

    5.0L Tech
    So Ive seen the junkyard post about how the rangers came with 4.10 gears in 8.8 rear ends. Are these a straight swap over as in take the entire rear end and swap them out? I would rather do that then try to swap the actual gear and pinon out. Ive never done that type of work before and afraid...

When I bought my car, it had a small whine coming from the rear end and it has been getting worse. I took the rear end cover off and checked the inner bearings. They...
