True, but I prefer a bolt-on version rather that having to take the rear apart to swap in my spindles and everything. That's just my thoughts on it.Danger Dude said:Age really does not matter when you are dealing with solid Steel rear end and it is going on a V6 not a 1000 HP dragster!!!
depends on the year in which you get the 8.8 out of. If you get it out of a 99+ Gt and you have a 99+ V6 all you do is take your 7.5 off put the 8.8 on. Its a direct swap. If you get it out of a 94-98 GT and you have a 99+ V6 you will need to swap the axles but after you do that its a direct swap232stang said:what exactly do you need to do for the swap because i have been wanting one for months now
Ya, that's true! But I guess you can kinda say I'm lazy sometimes when it comes to work, since I prefer to do my own work. Whern I did my rear, I put in 3.45's because I got them dirt cheap, but now I think I want to go to 3.73's so we'll see what I can find. I'm sure the 3.73's will add a little more "oomf" :wtf2: to my car.Danger Dude said:That is true but it is all about price and availibility. I personally dont understand swapping to a 8.8 90% of the people doing it are not going to ever need it. But like i saids if you can get it cheaper than installing gears and tlok on the 8.8 then go for it.
Well if you want a new rear-end, go to www.speedconcepts.net and tell Ken I sent ya. Or you can watch ebay and try to get one for cheaper.KyleUSAF said:thanks, that helps, do u know a good website to get the 3.73's and the 8.8 limited slip differential that will fit my stang
