You can replace the axle in the rear of your Mustang with a used shaft. You have full freedom to change the gear ratio if you choose. There are standard rear ends and those built for performance. The choice you make will determine how much horsepower and torque is available during acceleration. Buy a used rear axle for Mustang cars here at AxleGuys.com.
Mustang Ring Gear Sizes
The length of the shaft is uniform, but the ring and pinion are not. Even in the vintage Mustang cars, Ford depended on a couple of different sizes. Someone who says that they have an 8.8 rear end is a reference to the ring gear. The next standard size is 7.5. On a complete differential, these measurements encompass the disc brakes and drum brakes too.
The standard cover that will attach to a used Mustang axle is an 8 bolt or 10 bolt cover. The wheel lug pattern is generally a 5×5. The spline threading is usually provided in two sizes to complement the diameter of each shaft. A 28 or 31 spline is what people ask for.
Axle Ratios in Mustang Cars
The vehicles built in the 1960s through 1980s were created with a basic 2.73 ratio. This provided more torque at start up, but it dropped off after the car was in full speed. Ford Motor Company then switched to the 3.08 to give more top end to drivers. By the time the 5.0 was built in the 1990s, the gear ratio was 3.27 for the Mustang differential.
Additional ratios that improve on-road performance include the following:
Most American automakers use these stock ratios as well as other ones. The beauty of being a consumer is that you are not tied down to what the OEM setup was. You get to make the changes you want without taking away from your current performance level.
