Found my 8.8!! Woohoo!! Now have ??
Found my 8.8 rear end!! -- 96 Explorer, 4.10 gears, non-locking diff, with rotors, $250. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I pick it up this coming Saturday.
Now, some questions. Can I put a lockrite in the 4.10 geared 8.8 without removing the carrier and ring gear? Does the cross shaft pass by the ring gear on this rear end? This will determine if I do it myself, or have the shop do it when they weld on the spring perches. Also, which is the best locker to get? Is a lockrite or an EZ locker ok in this axle for 33"s? From the outside it looks like a big and beefy axle compared to the small dana35 in my YJ. Funniest part was there was an old YJ rim tossed next to the axle rack the axle was in, and it slid right onto the studs.

Also, unrelated, looking for some greasable boomerang shackles - what are the best ones, and best place to buy?
