8.8 rear in a 97

I am getting an 8.8 rear from a 95 gt with 3.73 gears in it already. I was wondering if there is any way to use my driveshaft or do I have to get one from a gt? Thanks.

Your driveshaft will work without a problem

Re: 8.8 rear in a 97

so how are you going about recalibrating your speedo? are you getting the car tuned, buying a handheld, or going to ford and paying them?

are you auto or 5speed btw?

You should start your own thread, but you would want a 99-04 8.8 to keep the width right. Strength and traction loc are the only real increases. I wouldn't bother with it unless you are heavily modded or need to replace it.
