My buddy has a complete 9inch with axles and brakes for $200.

It's non posi, but if I bought it, it would be. How hard is this

swap, and can I use my existing 8.8 Driveshaft?


PS
It needs new brackets welded on, but otherwise is complete.

Only thing I had to do was change the pinion yoke to match the driveshaft. It's been some time since I did it, but I think I was able to swap the one off the 8.8. May need an air impact gun to get them off!

Oh ya, there was a elec. connector on the 8.8. I removed it and zip tied it up to the frame. Must be for abs, but I'm not sure my 8.8 had it.

If by brackets, you mean the spring perches, youch! Got to get them placed right so there is no drive line angle to the pinion or there will be troubles.

My 9" is from an 83 Bronco. It bolted right in. I just got a different u-joint so I didn't have to use the flange that the 8.8 had. I lost rear ABS, but that's no loss to me.

Where is your speedo sensor? My friend with a 92 150, I6 300, mazda stick, and bw1356 had the speedo sensor in the 8.8. He swapped a 9", now his speedo wont work because he cant plug it into the tcase or rear end.
