I stripped my axle shafts in my 8.8, and need to replace them quick and cheap, are all 8.8 28 spline axle shafts the same? can i use the axle shafts from an older mustang? Please Help
Depends on what you are using them for. Some rangers had 8.8's with 28 spline (i'm pretty sure of that), but the differential is not centered on a ranger because of gas tank issues, so in a ranger 8.8, there are two different length shaft.

It depends on what your working on. If you have a Mustang, then you can use axles from the 7.5 and 8.8 rearends from 79-93. You can also use 2 passenger axles from a Ranger to do a rear 5 lug conversion on a Mustang/Fox body Ford. Let us know what you have and we can point you in the right direction.

I'm with gearrat on this, I thought all fullsize's and Bronco's had 31 spline in the 8.8's.

Aren't the passenger axles too short?

Thats why their stripped, Trucks/broncos use 31 spline, while the Mustang and other cars use 28 spline
