Quick I need a quick answer, 84 & 87 rear ends swap?

Hello all, I need a quick answer, I have a 1984 T-Bird, and I have the chance to get a 87 T-Bird for a song and a dance.

The 87 needs a read end though.

Are they a direct swap?

They're both Fox body cars, so it sounds good to me!

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.

I thought so...

Now I just need to decide which I like more, they are both about the same condition (good).

Any major reasons besides personal preference anyone can think of?

being an 87 and 84, keep one for parts?

87

Hello

The 87 might be a 8.8 & the 84 a 7.5

My 85 has the 4 link shock system on the 7.5 with 3L45 gears.

They will inter-change but may not be equal.
