I have a 99 v6. I've been wanting to do an 8.8 swap for awhile. I'm going the cheap route and pulling one from a local scrap yard. It's hard to come around gt rear axles around here but the f150s are plentiful. Now I know I've read on the forum that you can swap an 8.8 from an f150. My question is are there any major differences in the axle from an f150 and a gt axle? Splines? Gear ratio? Opinions would be greatly appreciated.
U do not know a lot about rear ends. I would not recommend you rebuilding it yourself.
