Any opinions on what is the "stronger" rear...the old 8" ford or the newer 8.8"..
Talking stock limited slip...without upgrades.
Thanks

Eddie,

The 8.8 is a lot stronger than the old 8".

never had a problem with either one eddie.i guess if you are turning crazy horse power then you don't want either, go to a 9"..
but mild horse power 350hp to 450hp either rear will do fine.....
