Availability: In stock

Installation Kit for 1987-1995 YJs. This Ford 8.8 install kit includes the following items: 2 weld-on anti-wrap style spring mounts for the housing, 4 U-bolts, 2 U-bolt plates, 2 weld on shock mounts. All hardware is unpainted.


Features of our Ford 8.8 install kit are as follows: same lug nut bolt pattern; disc brakes ('95 & newer); 31 spline axle shafts; 8.8" diameter ring gear (D35 is 7.5"); 120% stronger than D35; only 20 pounds more than D35; trac-loc differential stock; and 3-1/4" diameter tubes (strong!). You now need to find the complete rear axle assembly from a '95 or newer Ford Explorer from a salvage yard. Then, remove (torch) the Ford mounts (spring & anti-sway bar). You may also need to change the gear ratio as most Explorers have 3:73. The Ford 8.8 kit that we sell gives you the following: new, weld-on anti-wrap spring mounts, weld-on shock mounts, U-bolts and U-bolt plates. The width is almost the same. It is 5/8" per side narrower than the D35. This is a very minor drawback and will work if you have wheels with less backspace than stock. We have 7/8 thick wheel spacers available. We also have the correct cables for the emergency brake available as a kit that are a direct bolt on and super high quality. No cutting or custom fitting is needed. Note: Your ABS will need to be disconnected and will not function using this Ford 8.8 install kit. Contact us for more information on our Ford 8.8 install kit.
