Gears

Can someone tell me, is there any difference on diff gears for a stang? I'm looking for 3.73's, but can I use one out of other vehicles? Maybe one from a newer explorer or from a jeep? I would think that they are all the same if they fit in a 8.8 rear end. Thanks

Most advise against using used gears. They already have a wear pattern from the other vehicle and will make noise.

Cool thanks, what about peeps on CL selling gears they say they bought but weren't used? Could I use one that was purchased for a truck or explorer? Are they the same?

As long as it was made for a 8.8 it should be fine
