Where To Find A 8.8 Trak-Lok unit?!!

hey guys, im pry gonna get chewed out..but i've been searching and not getting a straight answer, i see this question everywhere lol...i have a 97 T-bird with 3.27 open diff, now i was looking on car-part.com and found some 8.8 mustang track-lok pumpkins for a good price, supercoupes are very very hard to find in my area..and i am limited on funds to buy brand new units... so i guess my question is what specific 8.8 IRS track-lok units will work for my car?? are mustangs 28 spline? or could i just find a 97 MkVIII pumpkin as long as it is a track-lok??

The mustang trac lok doesn't have the right side gears for the circlips in our halfshafts, and the mark VIII's are all opens.

There are some LX's out there that have trac lok

I have a complete aluminum center section out of 99' Cobra w/ 4.10's and trac-loc. It's a direct bolt in and only has about 20k miles on it. $430 shipped.

It has play so I think the bearings and clutches need to be replaced but I haven't opened it. Its the all aluminum carrier too.

I would like to get a hundred plus shipping but thats just me

Come over here to Shreveport LA.

The local U-Pull-Its get about $45 to $50 for a 8.8. Your choice for gear and tracloc or open.

Or for a 7.5, ditto.

Bring the rear axle chart to verify when you get under the car

I hope it works out , I love them gears man. With my old Dynothech DS the faster I would go the smoother the ride.
