Well that sure was a disappointment. Here's hoping this doesn't all turn out to be just an expensive lesson. I found a rear end at a local salvage yard. Right gears but not limited slip. Oh well, I...

Thanks for posting that Steve. Those charts provide a lot of information. Many codes seem to be vehicle model specific, while others are left blank in that area. Should I assume that the blank...

Still kicking this idea around. I know Explorers (probably others as well) have a tag on one of the cover bolts noting the gear ratio and other particulars. I run across an Explorer now and then that...

Okay, tried that. Doesn't seem to make much difference. Tried another post on the same forum a while ago and still don't see it. Don't new posts usually go up pretty quickly?

Back here again. Tried to post some questions on the Explorer, Sport Trac etc forum this morning, but it didn't seem to take. Maybe it just takes a while with new members? Maybe I just did it wrong.
