Can i do a 5 lug swap using parts from other vehicles? Was the 93 cobra 4 or 5 lug? I want a better gear ratio, but I dont want to pay the $500 they want to swap the gears. What other vehicles used the 8.8? did they have better ratios? Are they the right width? Are there any front or rear brake upgrades using junk yard parts?


Any help would be great!!!!!!!!!

im going through the same thing lol. i just bought a whole carrier / ring and pinion from a 2000 ford explorer. alot of fords have the 8.8 in them. rangers, explorers, f 150s just depends what gears you want. axles from 83-92 rangers are the same lenght as stock fox ones im pretty sure. 5 bolt .except there only 28 spline, and most diffs have 31 spline in them. if not anyone can correct me me by all means.

you have to use one side. i think is the left side axle from the rangers. and the mustangs came stock with 28 spline... i used autozoo rotors for a ranger on my conversion. but i am almost certain the axles are left side.
