Lincoln Versailles

i was just wondering , why do most rodders and custom guys use the rear end from the older lincolns versailles on rods and alot of impalas . i know the rear has disk brakes..you can run skirts with no problem.on an impala . but what are the spes... gears..( i think its 2.50:1 ratio).and also Parts for these rear ends are therefore becoming scarce, and the parts that usually need to be replaced often in this swap (rotors, calipers, soft lines) are becoming rather expensive.whats the lenght of the rear......... but why cant you use a rear end off a car like the 1994 and up mustangs..the lincoln it 1/2 longer then the mustang.....the mustang has rear disk brakes also.. you can just replace the bracket from an impala on to that rear... just a question... any help would be great....

or what other rear end do people use....

what are the pros and cons...to using that rear end...
