It's really a toss up right now on what to do. The lowest I could find an auburn for was $450 and if I could find an 8.8 at the junkyard is rather take the cheaper route.

IMO the auburn LSD is no better than 8.8 off a gt, if you can find an 8.8 rear, I'd say go for it. If not, and you don't plan on doing some heavy modding such as forced induction, the auburn LSD along with stock rear will be just fine.

What about a cam, heads and 4.2 swap? Would that be considered heavy?

Just found an 8.8 assembly for 200$

You'll have easier time finding parts for 8.8 axle.

Either way, you are going to have to pull apart the diff so just do it right and get an 8.8 if you can do the work yourself. 8.8 is stronger and parts are much easier to find

So I was gonna buy an 8.8 off a guy but he never messages me back about it. So I'm just gonna pull one from a junkyard but around here there's no GT in the junkyards so I was gonna pull a posi from an explorer and buy new axles online would that work or do I need other things to make this work. I know the explorer axles won't work because their offset.

Yeah it sucks. I have two 8.8's with 3.73's in em. One in my explorer, and one from a mountaineer. Just way too much effort in getting them into the mustang. Same with the 302 in the truck, I could swap it into the stang, but its not worth the effort to do so.

There are a couple gt's at one of the salvage yards here, but that yard just drops the cars in the lot with a front loader. Most of the axles are destroyed at that point.

What else would I need to get to make it work though? If I took out the differential and bought new axles, then what components am I missing

I believe the yolk is different. Also the explorers used leaf springs. You'd have to cut off the mounts and weld in the brackets for the mustang springs and quad shocks.

One last question. I know for autos it's 4.10 and manual 3.73. I was going to get 4.10 but I was talking to a guy at work today and he said that I'd love them for launches but when I gig to moving I wouldn't like them as much because speed wouldn't rise as quick because the they were to steep.

I finally got an 8.8 from a 2000 gt btw. So do I get the 4.10s and say this guy so doesn't know what he's talking about or do I reconsider keeping the 3.27s that came on the gt.

I'm not to concerned with the MPG as I drive city mostly to and from school so the bigger gear would actually help me a little. But since this my daily driver I don't wont it to not have any pick up speed when I'm already moving (like from 40-60+).
