There are no 'bolt in' 8 or 9 inch rear ends for the fox chassis. I wouold guess that you have a 7.5" rear in your 2.3 car. The pre-86 GT's used this rear axle as well and they had a Traction-Loc, so if you could find one of those it would work.
You could also upgrade to an 8.8", and then buy a set of gears in the ratio that you want.

Better yet, try and find a rear axle from an 87-88 Thunderbird turbocoupe, and get a 3.73 with a traction-loc and 4 wheel disc brakes. This is a relatively easy upgrade, and well worth it.

The 87-88 Tc cars are solid axle, and a bolt in for the Mustang.
My avatar is just something I found on the net, my car is still under 'construction'.
