mustang rear fit in cougar?

I was hoping you guys could tell me if a trac-loc 8.5" set of gears from a 90 mustang would fit my 94 cougar. thanks...

should be a set of 8.8's, to start, not 8.5...the rest id up to these guys. From what I understand, both have 28-spline axles, so I think other than the bearings, it should be a go. But, like I said... let these boys here answer definate or not.

Yes it will fit with no problems. IRS/ non-IRS doesn't matter. The non-IRS has the grooves on the clips for installation. It fits and works like it should. Rich has one in his car, dirtyd0g says it works, Gus has one in his Mark. It works! I'll be puttin one in too.

I was told if it's in good condition then you don't need anything extra but a rebuild kit wouldn't hurt. The t-loc swaps into the stock case. Get a professional to do it though. Just my knowledge combined with others.
