How much you pay for the installation for your 8.8 rear end?

That guy may have installed 31 spline axles which need a 31 spline diff. Gears don't matter, they'll bolt to and diff
ahh thanks wasn't sure.

They also offered me a 95' 8.8 end but he said its in need of rotors and other material to have it in working conditions. Also will a 09' one fit in mine or are those off fitment? Its the first one, the rest are some he said he has in a storage but isnt sure what year they came fron theyve just accumulated over years. Does anybody have an idea which one is a correct one for mine?

Our rotors are compatible so you can swap them of that's the only problem and 09 will not fit 94 to 04

I still got the stock gears but I'm going to put 3.73 and with the 8.8 it pulls with 2 wheels now so better traction and off the line quicker, bigger burn outs too

Does anyone know a cheap site for rear ends, or is eBay and a junk yard the best option?

Well, looks like I need to find a new job. I have a masters in IT, might need to find a job in Cali so I could try and join the mustang club/crew.

You get a rear end from whatever body style car you have, because they changed 98-99 with the body styles, the 99-04's have .75" more on each side of the axle than the 94-98's
