7.5 Axle id and ? about narrowing using ranger axle shafts

I have a Ford 7.5 rear axle with disc brakes w/ abs.
Rear tag is:
S 268 A
3 27 75 9C 19 (3:27 7.5 open)

1) Any idea what it is out of ? I'm thinking 99 mustang

First of all it was free. I am building a 36 Dodge with a 280 hp jeep stroker engine/auto. I won't be racing it but may be doing some light towing for a 1000 lb tear drop camper. I plan on buying an Auburn posi and may go with the c-clip eliminators and use aftermarket alloy shafts.

( I know, I know, go with the 8.8 or 9". But it was free)

2) Can you take two 83-92 26-1/4" 28 spline axle shafts, narrow the housing and run these stock short axles? Will changing from abs to non-abs change any of the end spacing on the axle ?

Thanks for the help in advance guys.

The exciter ring for the ABS is on the carrier,so it will not effect your axle's.The axle's your speaking of are from the 83 to 92 ranger.If I was doing the diff for you,I would probably try and talk you out of doing the C-Clip eliminator kit.They tend to be leaky and a pain for a streetrod. And once you install them,you can't go back.

Do you have your mind set on the auburn?

I've heard that the c-clip eliminators tend to leak so I am a little hesitant to go that route. Weak link tends to be the track-lok Auburn has heavier parts and Detroit has worm gears I believe. I'm not set on any locker. I won't be loading up the rearend just want posi for towing if I need it.

You might take a look at the Ford Motorsports E7TZ4026A. It's a nice unit and it's all rebuildable if ever needed.It's a little less money that the auburn unit and the auburn's are NON rebuildable.

A nice set of axle's and a posi would do real nice and you wouldn't have to worry about leaks.
