Good deal on an 8.8?

Found a posi 8.8 rear out of a foxbody mustang complete with disc brakes. is this a good deal? The guy is only asking $150. I have to buy a 4:10 R&P but thats not too big of a deal.

Mustangs use 29 spline axle shaft instead of 31 spline.

Wrong spline count
Wrong gears
Wrong width
Drum brakes

You may get lucky with the right bolt pattern.

Anticanman is right do not get that 8.8. You want one out of a 95-2001 Ford explorer. It will say axle 41 on the drivers side door sticker to the explorer, or the axle tag will be labeled D2 for 4.10 gears. I got mine out of a 99 2 door explorer with 4.10 gears for 150$ and the junk yard even pulled it for me. Be patient and get exactly what you want and you will save money

The earlier explorers are fine too. There is nothing wrong with drum brakes but if you want to swap them out its only a few bolts on either side and you can get them from any 8.8.

So you know - the Mercury Mountaineer and the Mazda Navajo have the same Explorer style 8.8 in them.

Or the tag can be labeled 4L10. That gets you the 4.10 gears and LSD. Mine was $200 pulled and loaded on my truck.
