Question on 8.8 I found

I found a 8.8 out of a 96 ford explorer and according to the tag on the rear end it is not a limited slip. It had a 4 10 on the tag but not "L" in between the two numbers. The question is will it really matter limited slip vs non? I currently have a stock d35 in the rear.

I was going to pull it this week end if it did not matter...if so I will pass on it

All comment welcome

non-lsd means you can toss a lunchbox locker in there and go, no gear resetting.
LSD means you cant lunchbox it, but you can rebuild the LSD with the carbon disc set which comes with an f150 spring ~$110.

All depends on your plans. Either is worlds better than the D35.

Do you plan on getting a fullcase locker or selectable like an ARB, Eaton Elocker, or TruTrac?

limited slip isnt really a deal breaker most likely its worn out anyway. I specifically wanted an open carrier one so I could put a full case locker in. just my personal preference, . if its a good deal buy it.

if you plan on putting a full case locker in like a Detroit (trutrac or locker), ARB, Eaton, anything like that, it doesnt matter what you get because you're replacing the carrier in the 8.8.

If you plan on just using a lunchbox autolocker like the Spartan/Aussie/lockright, then you NEED an open carrier.

Richmond makes a lunchbox locker designed for the 8.8LSD it is just more expensive than a spartan or Aussie.

They want 160.00 with brakes etc. It looks to be in pretty good shape...nice and dry other then a small damp spot around the drain plug. The rotors spin nice and smooth...

I paid $175 last week caliper to caliper and pulled it myself. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Check the VIN sticker on the Explorer's door (or jamb) for the axle code.

42 = 4.10 gears with open differential

D2 = 4.10 gears with limited slip

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Gonna go pick one up Thursday for $50 already pulled. Its got 3.73 but that doesn't matter because its going in a 4 cylinder Yj and he's going to regear it himself to 4.88 in anticipation of 33's.

^Nice, didn't know that.

I'd snag it for $160.

I thought the door post said 44 but I will have to double check unless you can decode it... It was on a Ford Exlplorer XL

I believe 44 (and D4) is 3.73 gears.... best bet before you pull the axle, pull the cover off and look at the edge of the ring gear - usually the ratio is stamped on that as well... if not, then count the teeth.

Wouldn't be the first time I've heard of the axle being different than what the door tag states. double-check to be sure.
