I just think you guys are funny because you orovide no backing to what you say... I had a mechanic of over 25 years way more experience then both of y'all tell me for the plans I had for my car either rear was just as good and since mine had low mileage to just stick with the 7.5 but believe what you guys want haha
good luck with that

if i ever get the recommendation from a "mechanic " that says a 7.5" will out perform or handle better then an 8.8" i will immediately call the BBB to check to see what certifications he has...because i'd hate for someone like that to work on peoples cars

now no more off topic posts...

Think of the basic mechanics behind it, the size and build of the 8.8 naturally makes it stronger than the 7.5. Yes they both can break, but you are far less likely to break the 8.8 than the 7.5.

this has been said over and over again but he doesn't like to be shown he's wrong....he'll keep up his arguement till we get bored. Just like with everything else like him saying he beats s197's, then new edge GTs, then runs nitrous but can't prove it because taking pics of the kit is illegal (his words not mine), then his dyno sheet which david wanted to see....i think i'm going to start keeping a list of all the urls of these types of things and when he gives these types of posts just link them all...that way new members can see the background of said info.

so like i said you can't win even though it's accurate to say an 8.8 is stronger then a 7.5 and a better rear over all

lol make sure you have a go-pro mounted low so when it snaps i can make a remix of it with some dubstep we can add it to the ME v6 FB page

how many passes do you think it'll last with how hard you launch it

It's an auto so launch isn't brutal off footbrake, might make a couple passes lol

i'm curious mustangman...you said at one point you ran nitrous...how's your rear doing? you never got back to us on more info about your kit you said you ran. i'm sure David could use some pointers since you've already run a kit before...what was it again?

I personally would not take the risk of buying an 8.8 rear end I know nothing about(as in how it was treated) off of someone or a salvage yard, especially if it came off a vehicle with high miles.
I generally don't research things I know to be true, but to answer your question, the evidence is everywhere. I've seen the 7.5 called a ticking time bomb. It is general knowledge. You just choose to ignore it or are too lazy to research. My first Google hit was Wikipedia: "It [8.8] was also used in the 1986 model year V-8 equipped Mustangs, replacing the weaker 7.5 rear end." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_8.8_axle
Need I research further? This argument is stupid, but hey, go ahead and recommend the 7.5, as long as it's not to me or my friends. Then again, my friends already know better.

I never once said that the 8.8 is less durable, I know for a fact that it is. What I am saying is, there is no need to upgrade to an 8.8 rear when the 7.5 is durable enough to withstand a simple rear differential swap and a majority of the time the 8.8 that you find on craigslist is more expensive. It is not always that way but if you happen to be lucky and find one cheaper than a brand new LSD, good for you. The point made here is that you will be fine with the 7.5" rear axle. Is the 8.8 better? Yes, but there is no need to upgrade to it.

You said a low mile 7.5 is stronger than a high mileage 8.8. We disagree.

Nooooo you guys may be able to work on cars but you can't read we said a high mileage 8.8 is more likely to break and unless you can show me evidence to the contrary then you can't dispute it... You don't know how many hard launches that 8.8 has been through yes it is stronger than the 7.5 butttttt it is not indestructible... Obviously it's a better rear to handle more power since it is stock in the gts all as said was there is no need unless you are putting out serious power you guys are just know it Alls who only want to give one opinion. But think what you want and give people bad info idc but for our young members who are "on their first car" it's no need to spend extra on an 8.8 when their purposes are 7.5 worthy. And my mechanic is more knowledgeable than you so I don't need you to question that but thanks for playing anyway... We discussed both we looked at the pros and cons and he told me either way I was fine... There were no 8.8s in my area for sale that I was interested in so I stuck with my 7.5 and everything has been fine. Good day sirs

Auburn lsd for 7.5 = $400-500 without install. 8.8 from salvage yard, plus rebuild, $200-300. It would seem to be smart to upgrade, and save money. All three salvage yards in my area sell rear ends in the 150 range. While you are right, and dont know what they have been put through, it is cheap and easy to rebuild an 8.8. This removes the mileage from your equation. Leaving one best, but more importantly cheaper route. Your mechanic should have known this, as it is pretty basic stuff. Im sitting at about 20 years of experience, and it sure as hell didnt take me that long to get the basics down.

Exactly the points i made before plus the money saved could go toward other things.

Speaking.of showing evidence of things mustang man...still waiting on the nitrous proof, dyno sheet, time slip...if none of that stuff was true you can just be honest. Id respect you more for coming clean then making excuses.

Oh my god haha just drop it. 20+ years of experience and you are still as stubborn as a 5 year old. Because you didn't read what I said I am going to say it again. You will most likely not find a long lasting 8.8 for $200-300. Even if you do and you do whatever "restoration" you do to it, in the end you'll still spend as much as buying a brand new LSD. We are just two different people with two different opinions. Unsubscribed from this thread, good day.

Haha you guys are hilarious either way you go You'll be fine don't let these know it Alls talk you into doing something that you don't need to if you find the right 8.8 for the right price go for it but if not dont feel pressured that you have to

---------- Post added at 01:25 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:23 PM ----------

Yes he said we could restore the 8.8 but he said it wasn't necessary for the intentions I had for the car right now the 7.5 was fine

Read my whole comment then take a second and comprehend it guys cuz you aren't getting what I'm sayintb

Being knowledgeable, and experienced hardly makes anyone a know it all.

Sounds like your mechanic didnt want to put in the leg work to get you a better deal, and a better axle. I can understand your desire to defend him, but his advise as well as yours, is poor at best.

The op was curios about his one tire fire. If he plans on eating up tires doing burnouts more power to him. It does however make sense that since he has intentions of beating on his car, he should go with a stronger axle. That is solid advise in any automotive circle. It would be ignorant not to acknowledge that.

There is a very good reason to do it. Infact the very same reason you joined this forum. We upgrade our mustangs so they perform better, look better, and are more reliable. I dont believe anyone on this forum, or any other should tell someone not to upgrade.

Is it needed? Maybe not, however neither is anything you have done to your car, but that didnt stop you did it? Its an upgrade, improving on the car. For this reason it is suggested, and rightfully so.

This is good. It all depends on personal preference. 8.8 if you want your car more reliable and be able to take a beating, 7.5 if its just a DD with nothing special. But I'd take 8.8 over 7.5 if I could

I'd take a quality 8.8 over a 7.5 too these guys are portraying it like it's a necessity and that is what I want OP to know is that it's an option and maybe a better option but it's not a necessity the 7.5 will he adequate

I think what they're trying to say is that an 8.8 rear blows the 7.5 rear away. Which is true performance wise. But it all depends on money, and preference. Lets leave it at that and start a new argument elsewhere, this ones gone rather bland

I always look at both sides if the coin. But yeah that's true, reliability 8.8 is better but performance is pretty much the same

easy off is the best way to catch traction...you want to roll off and then press into it
