disc brakes and 2.73 ratio?

I'm doing a custom project, and i'm looking to find a mustang rear end with disc brakes, solid axle and a ratio of 2.73 or less in a 7-1/2" rear end...

Can anyone tell me if the V6 mustang's ever came with such a thing?

Thanks kindly,
-mark

You can find a 94-98 V6 mustang rear end. It's a 7.5 open diff, 2.73 gears, disc brakes on most of them.

Thats a solid rear....i believe the smallest rims from the factory are 15's so i wouldn't run any smaller than that, you could run into issues if you do....as for break size im not sure but i know they're not too big

lowflyn, you say 94-98. Was this same combo (7.5 & 2.73) avail on the newer 99+ V6 mustangs as well, or just the 94-98's?
Thanks!
