8.8 question

Found my 8.8 this weekend so I'm starting to gather the odds and ends for my swap and I can't find the answer to this question.

Are there any pros or cons of using the spicer 1310 flange VS using the ford flange and a 1310 to 1330 conversion u joint?

Also, I have read a few places that the flange out of a grand marquise is the 1310 flange. Using Napa, the part number for the rear driveshaft @ rear diff u joint on the YJ is the same as the part number on the grand marquise. Is this adequate proof? Can anyone 100% confirm that this flange will take a 1310 u joint? Does anyone know specifically what years for the grand marquise?

Get the one that your drive shaft has, likely 1310 on a normal YJ. That also means that your rear and front u-joints are the same, nothing special needed for trail spares.

That's an excellent point, didn't think of that at all.

So 1310 flange it is. Can anyone verify that the Grand Marquise has the 1310 flange or am i stuck buying the spicer one?

Slick way to tell if the part you want is interchangeable is to go to Orielys and put in for your U joint. Then click on the joint.
It will list all other cars and trucks it fits. And it will be a lot of them.. Then just pick the ones that have a 8.8 and bam...

I been doing this for years... Be surprised what other vehicles stuff fits./.

Well the plot thickens..... When I pull up the u joint for my jeep it is 1.063 diameter and 3.217 length and it shows compatibility with 92-94 LS or GS Grand Marquis. However when I start with a 92, 93, or 94 Grand Marquis and look up the u joint it brings up 3.622 length and 3.217 length. The 3.217 shows compatibility with YJs, the 3.622 doesn't. I'm so confused......

The 3.21" wide one is a 1330, 3.06 or so wide is a 1310, same caps. My 8.8 came with a 1330 yoke plate and I used a conversion plate on day one. I later updated the driveshaft (Tom Wood) and got that end as 1330 so I didn't need the conversion u-joint any longer. Unlike what I suggested above, I don't have the same u-joint front and rear, but I do have standard u-joints all over now.

I got a definitive answer from Napa. The grand marquis has a police package available that came with the bigger joints. The base model has 1310s and the police package has 1330s. If i can find a base model at the JY, the flange should work.

Early Explorers with rear drum brakes also have the 1310 flange...91-95

When you click on the u joint from the store, it will have a tab that list all the vehicles it fits. Then click on the MODEL of car or truck you think will have the 8.8 rear. Since it will have the right U joint and the flange. Since 2053 FORDS have the same U joint rear, there will be a LOT of vehicles to choose from
This part also fits:

Buick77 vehicles

Chevrolet2298 vehicles

I have the 8.8 in my jeep. I'm not home right now so I can't give you part numbers. The u-joint I use is off set ( two different sizes) when I get home I'll find the part numbers and post them. 👍

But it would be nice is all my ujoint were the same for trail repairs ( less to carry with me)
