WTB: Mustang differential

WTB: Mustang differential....

A cursory search of the junkyards in Austin has come up empty.

I am working on a 5-lug conversion for my '90 Mustang. I am looking for a
rear end to do the conversion on the ground, then bolt up. Paydirt would be
a setup with 3.55 gears, 5-lug done, limited slip/Traction-Lok and disc
brakes, with preference given to the unit closest to that.

Must bolt up to a 1990 Fox platform....i.e. '88 to '95. Must also be
relatively local: Austin-San Antonio. I'll be in Houston March 11, so that
would be a possibility, especially if the price is right.

I have cash. What have you got, and what are you asking?

Re: Mustang differential

So, you're looking for a Ford 8.8" rear end, with 3:55 gears?

You can almost get those at 7-11...

This place has one for $250.00... http://recycler.car-part.com/BillDee/

Just have to go to Houston to get it...

Re: WTB: Mustang differential

Strange, in an age when nearly all salvage yards are interconnected
via internet, that they couldn't track one down for you. I can even go
on line and contact them, and leave a message as to what I seek.

Do they actually respond? The few times I have done this there was no
response.

>>So, you're looking for a Ford 8.8" rear end, with 3:55 gears?

Problem with this is Mustangs didn't come stock with 3:55 gears unless
they were changed over by the owner at some point in time. The
Thunderbird Turbo Coupe from 87-88 with manual transmission did however
(autos have 3:73) and these can be used in the Mustang with a few
changes.

Re: WTB: Mustang differential

I've done the five lug swap on my '89 LX. It wouldn't take any more
time to install two left side axles and five lug brake drums from a
ranger using your current axle housing. This saves you from pulling the
entire axle assembly. I think I got the swap kit (axles and drums) from
Ford Racing for around $200. You can probably get them for half that,
or less, from a salvage yard. You can buy used 3.55 gears and a
differential from The Corral or most any Mustang site for cheap.

Re: Mustang differential

I used to have an 88 Thunderbird with a C4 auto, and it had a 2:73 rear end
stock...

I had to go out and get 3:55 for it...

I got it from a place on South Congress... Aarons Auto Salvage I think the
name of the place was, and I only paid about $175 for it.

They even threw in the matching driveshaft, as well as a new spline for it
from another Thunderbird... It was (somewhat) plug and play...
