ford explorer 8.8s are 31 spline and 95 up is disc brakes and theres a bunch of em are 373 geared posi units out there.

if I remember corectly, from what I've read fron those that have done it, the 8.8 has to be narrowed 3 inches on one side then you buy a short side axle out of another salvage yard 8.8 to put in the side you cut. At that point you have a rearend around 2" narrower than the original. you will prob need to adjust the perches. you can have axles redrilled to fit GM wheels.


Nova 62-67.....43 1/2..50 3/4....57 3/4
Nova 68-79.....42 3/4..53 1/4....60 1/4
Ford 95-01......39 1/8..53 3/8....60 3/8

Here's a page all about swapping a explorer 8.8 into an S-10 truck, very interesting read
