8.8\" ratio Q\'s
really simple couple of tech question on the 8.8" diffs here.
1) what ratios are common on explorers, and which ratios relate to which models ( eg: do autos use, say 3.54's, manuals 4.10's, ang anything with 'towing' or 'off-road' packages 4.30's, etc)
2) does anyone know what the common ratios are on the Aerostar vans with 8.8" rear ends? ( and yes, I know that not all Aerostars use the 8.8")
I'm in the middle of doing an emergency axle swap under the Niva ( front end blew up, and I can no longer get spare parts - kinda limping along right now, hopign it doesn blow totally before I can get the new axle set up!!) Once I get the front end in, I'll be swapping an 8.8" under the back to match the new D30 front for wheel lug circle, and width. Any info on the ratios would be appreciated, especially crossover info on the vans, as Aerostars are common in the local you pull it yard, but Explorers can be hard to find.
