The girly man gears and open rear have got to go. I'm looking for 3.80-4.11 gears and a differential, preferably in an assembled 3rd member, but all the parts is okay too. Please either respond here or email me at [email protected] Thanks!

Well I'd definately prefer a 9" rear. Is this a complete rear? What's it out of? ie how wide is it? Email me and let me know. Thanks!

That "4.63" chunk (should be 4.62) was the reason for my post in the ford racing forum. However, I've emailed the guy - he doesn't know yet whether its open, trac-loc, locker, spool. I am going to bid on it if it's not open/spool, but if you want it go for it. I don't want to bid you up either - do me a favor and email me and let me know what you'd pay. If your max is higher than mine, I won't bid you up.

Once upon a time I had a complete 4.62 detroit locker chunk, but I sold it. The car was a daily driver then and I planned on keeping it that way - too bad I can't get that one back.

The ebay 4.63 8" looks like an open rear to me. The T-Loc uses smaller ring gear bolts that are counter-sunk into the case cover.

Of course, you could always buy something like this and simply swap in a new Detroit Locker differential for around $400 or so.

8" rear end parts are NOT cheap. T-locs are few and far between. Trucks often came with t-loc rears (most of which had 9" rears) so 9" t-locs are fairly commmon. Trucks never had 8" rears, so the only way you get a t-loc is if someone custom ordered one in a car.... which is not very common in the "cheap" car lines 8" diffs came in.

Good Luck finding one, you'll need it!

You better start saving your pennies for either an aftermarket Detroit Locker, or a 9" conversion.

Good Luck!

Mike,
Actually 8" t-loc rears were common in mustang IIs. So they are out there, just hard to come by. I'm not about to put $400 into an 8" rear, but hopefully something will come along to hold me over until I can get a good 9".

Haha Alex! Believe me, I know you do. If I still had that complete chunk with the gears and locker, it would be great, but I think the 4.62s will be too much. Any tire that would let me hook that much gear would also let me frag that 8" all over the track.

Yes, I did. I still want to go 9" but was just thinking of getting some decent gears/locker for an 8" to hold me over. If I can get something cheap, I'll go for it, but I think at this point I'll just save my $$$ unless something comes my way.
