So it will just bolt right on then, or do I got to modify something? Guess I got to change the drive shaft too, don't I?

ok, if its from a 97 cobra, it will be a direct bolt-on. if its from a 99+ cobra, it will not fit w/o about $1000 worth of other stuff

before 1999, the cobras had live axles like we do. since 1999, they have switched to the IRS. if it is the solid axle, then all you have to do is unbolt the lower control arms, upper control arms, shocks and driveshaft, then put the new rear end. you wont need to swap driveshafts, since fox bodies, they have been the same length.

Well now you guys got me thinking, what if I wanted to put a (80's-90's) Cougar or t-bird IRS under a '88 mustang?

I know they exist, I have been told that it is a direct bolt in.. does anybody know for sure?

Also which center carrier do they have 8.8 or 7.5 or other?

they exist, but its not a direct swap. you need the conrtorl arms, the exhaust, the driveshaft, the shocks, the springs and some other things. IRS completly changes around the rear geometry and where everything goes.

im 99% sure theyre 8.8s.
