Rear End Lube Capacity

My repair manual states the stock (3.27) rear end takes 3.25 quarts of lube. I put about 2.5 quarts and the differential spit back about a pint. A lot of that pint is soaked into my driveway.

So, what's the real rear end capacity and does anyone have a good technique to get under the Mustang. My car is not lowered. I have to put my ramps on the beginning of my driveway and crawl along the curb-gutter to get a space high enough to crawl under the car. i am keeping the car fairly level.

Thanks.

I read the title of this thread and realized how fast my mind goes straight into the gutter...


I'll have to get out my owner's manual tomorrow and check because all the 8.8s have the same capacity. If you still have an owner's manual it'll be in there. If that's what you used then I dunno, are you SURE you got all the fluid out?

^Yup, pints, not quarts.

4.25 pints (2.125 qt) per the 2002 Owner's Manual -- you can download it from Ford here...

Ok. 4.25 pints is right. The Haynes book said 3.75 pints and the owners manual states 4.25 pints. I had misread pints and thought quarts. Well, two pints make a quart. So, I'm good there.

Other than buying a car lift, anyone have a good technique to work underneath the car?

Thanks.
