3.73 questions

Post by tt88topmustang on Fri Jan 21, 2011 11:28 pm

I am getting other fox body into my garage this sunday. My parents thinks I am crazy for buying too many. I planned on buying a ford racing 3.73 gear and 31 spine 5 lug swap for my 3.27 8.8 rear it has on it. However, I came across Explorer 3.73 with 5 lug axle set up.... I wanted to see if there was any difference or It would be a bad routine to use explorer gear/axle.
I need an expert's opinion or feedbacks. Thanks

Awww ok, glad i asked before I got stuck with it. Guess the best way to go is to built the 8.8 gear I have. Thanks for helping out.

Picked up a '95 GT rear today, with disc brakes still attach ( hose was cut off) and driveshaft still attach.. all for $150! I got pretty good deal. It may be a little wider but it s cheaper than whole 5lug swap. I can install 3.73 gear into it and bolt it right up.
