8.8 From a Crown Victoria

Ive been looking for an 8.8 Rearend or a 7.5 Traction-Lok unit. I found an 8.8 Rearend off of a Crown Victoria with a 28 Spline. My question is, will it fit on a Mustang that is also a 28 Spline. I thought all Ford 8.8 rearends were interchangable with other 8.8 rearends with the same Splines. Someone told me it wouldnt fit a Mustang because the Crown Victoria has different mounting points? Would it fit on a Mustang.

since the crown vic has a completely different chassis, you would have to do alot of fabrication to make it fit. with the time and money you spend on the crownvic rear end you could have just payed for an 8.8 out of a mustang.
what are your plans as far as power? it could be that you dont need an 8.8.

Well as far as future plans, i donno if im gonna add any power adders, if so it would only be nitrous (like a 75 shot). Im getting all of the bolt on's as well. 7.5 rearends are weaker than 8.8s. Also if i can just find an 8.8 rearend from a Mustang, it already has the Traction-Lok. I just want to get the 8.8 incase i do anything serious to it. Its hard to find a cheap 7.5 T-Lok unit as well.

Thanks for the info about the Crown Vic.

here is my suggestion, since you dont plan on big power, get an auburn limited slip diferential for your 7.5 and get ford racing gears. since the weak part of the 7.5 is the spydergears the auburn will take care of that. and it will cost less than installing an 8.8.

How much would you think it would all cost to buy, not to install? Are you sure it would be less than installing an 8.8?

are you asking if the t-lok from the crown vic will fit an 8.8 rear end that has been taken off a mustang or are you asking if the housing will bolt to a mustang
like are you saing if it will fit in here

or are you asking if the whole unit will bolt onto a mustnag chassis.
