I used the Moroso ones that are in the Summit link above(local speed/machine shop carries them) and they worked just fine. I know they say for a 3" tube but they fit my 8.8 perfectly. If not a little grinding should open the radius up just fine. I like the fact they are very low profile. Which is nice if you are staying SUA.

Not to high jack, but M.O.R.E. said that 90% of the explorers came with 3:73 gears. When we bought our 98 explorer. I walked around the lot and every explorer with the 4.0 had 4:10 gears. This was a big dealer and I bet they had at least 40 new explorers with the 4.0, 4:10 combo. From that experience it's hard for me to believe that 90% of explorers had 3:73' gears.

I feel like I did the least costly option to install mine. Details are in my build thread in my signature, but I reused the factory ford perches and u-bolts and spring plates (they were included from the salvage yard where I got the axle at no additional cost). And I'd put the finished job up against any aftermarket parts. So if you can get the parts from the explorer and do some minor welding, your set! Good luck.
