Gears from another car?

Is it possible to go to a junkyard and take gears from say an expedition or suburban and have them for in the mustang? Just an Idea I had for a cheap set of gears

You could spend all that time taking out old/used gears and find that they won't shim correctly. You could easily just get new ones and save yourself all the trouble.

Plus you'll need a completely rebuild kit and make sure that the axle is in fact the same.
