94 Mustang rear end info

Anyone know whether a 6 cylinder 94 Mustang has a 8.8 or a 7.5 rear end? How do you tell the difference between the two?

Probably a 7.5". The 7.5" rear end cover is flat on the top & bottom, and curved on the sides. The 8.8" is kinda flat on all 4 sides, with curved corners.



#3 is an 8.8", #4 is a 7.5"

No 8.8's in V6 Mustangs. Note in the above pictures #3+#4 above you can see a little metal tag under a top right bolt. These tags make it easy to ID what you are looking at. The second row of letters will look something like "2 L .73 8.8" and a couple more numbers. In this case it would be a "2.73" ratio. The "L" stands for a traction-loc rear (much rarer than a regular "2.73"). And of course "8.8" signifying that it is an 8.8" rather than a "7.5".
Easy peasy. As long as it hasn't been eaten up by rust or some butthead pulled the tag off and threw it away.
