Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

Recommended Posts

Putting in my order for this set-up has rejuvenated interest in my Z. This Super 8.8 swap is something I can actually afford. Better struts, serviceable diff, stronger axles, hubs, and companions, 5 lug swap, bigger brakes, all pretty much bolt on parts with minor fabrication. Thrifty shopping and planning will make this whole swap significantly less than a set of aftermarket R200 axles. Plus I can buy the replacement parts from local parts houses. I'm stoked! Thank you for following through with your word and actually bringing something to market. Who needs an obx fitted 3.36 R200? I'll have one available soon. 😜🤣🤣

Have you sourced the super 8.8 assembly? Just curious what they get for them and what stock gear ratio are available out there..

Entire rear subframe can be had for anything from 500 to 1200 plus freight. 

 

Just the bare diff itself ranges from $100 to $900 and is available in 3.15, 3.31 all the way up to 4.09 factory.  Aftermarket 4.56 gears are also available.

 

The most common ones are 3.15 from a v6 rental and 3.31 off an ecoboost.

 

Ebay is full of them, ALL have lsd but some even come with torsen.

Yes, I got a 3.31 iron housing (manual trans car) from LKQ. Prices at LKQ for the diffs alone are pretty cheap, they go from $220-$600. Mine has 67k miles on it and was advertised at $260. They charge more for those labeled "clutch type lsd", but as said above, that's what they all are aside from the torsen ones.
