Swapping for a supercoupe rear end

Does anyone know if you can directly swap a rear end of a supercoupe into a lx on a 94 3.8liter?

pretty much.. so long as its the whole rear.. most of you 3.8 guys are still running 7.5" rear ends.. a little smaller than the SCs and LXs 8.8

by whole rear end do you mean everything from the driveshaft back, or just the pumpkin?

The 7.5" and 8.8" centersections use the same driveshaft mounting flange. Meaning that you can bolt an 8.8" centersection into a car that came with a 7.5" centersection without a problem.

Everything from a supercoupe rear end can be installed onto your LX. Though the only parts really worth changing are the centersection and halfshafts. Oh, and the rear disc brake setup, if your LX has rear drums.
