Mark VIII Rear End Ratios

I'm looking at a wrecked '93/'94 Mark VIII and I was wondering if they all had a 3.08 gear. I tried a search and couldn't find any info on this subject. Also, besides the seats, are there any other parts I could use on a '93 5.0 T-Bird - the engine and tranny are already gone. One last question: what is a fair price for the two front seats, if they are in good condition? Thanks again for any help!!!

I'm not sure about '93-'95, but '96-'98 base Mark VIIIs had the 3.08, while the LSC have 3.27 gears.

Correct...and they all are of the "one wheel peel" variety (again, at least on the gen 2 cars for sure).

Since all mark 8's got traction control, wouldn't that mean they are all open diffs (factory)?

All 93-98 Base models got a 3.08 rear end gear

95-98 LSC models for 3.27's.

All were open rears

Not all Mark 8's got traction control. 93-96 it was an option. 97-98 all had it
