8.8 interchangeable parts ?
First off, I've got a 95 F150 Reg. Cab Longbox w/ auto and 2wd. Bought it with a 3:08 open diff then put 32/1150 tires on. This combo sucks for gas mileage around town which is most of my driving.
I've torn down a couple of other trucks (95 and 96) to get a few parts I wanted (keep what I want, sell or scrap the rest).
So now I have 2 spare diff's, 1 is a higher mileage 3:55 LSD (95), the other is a real low mileage 3:55 open (96).
The LSD setup is going to need new side and spider gears as well as clutch packs, which is not too bad ,but I'm trying to figure the practicality of putting the LSD carrier into the open (low mileage) housing using the low mileage gears and shafts and the LSD carrier.
Anybody know what does and doesn't interchange between the 2 ?
