i have what i believe to be an SVO rear end which is an 8.8. it was original with disk brakes. does anyone know anything about it or have a tech article link about one? any idea what they are worth? i'm thinking of possibly using it on my 91' 4 cylinder car because i still have the 7.5 rear.

thanks in advance

I thought the SVO Mustang rear was a 7.5" unit as well.

It was.  The 8.8 disc brake rear (pre 95) is a turbo couple rear...

ok, sorry i was basing the info on what the person told me from who i bought it from. guess thats why i cant find any information for it.

ok, so i have a 8.8 turbo coupe rear. from a quick google search its 10" rotors with a stock 3.55 gear.


so anyone know anything about it? track width? anyone have links to someone actually using it on a fox? just curious if its worth the work?

It's a 1.5" wider than a stock mustang 8.8.

U can run it like that just watch the backspacing on the wheels.

Or change out the axles to a fox length 5 lug , but will take a few more little parts.

You can take all the stuff from the 7.5 and make that T.C 8.8 into a mustang length rear end with drum brakes. To do a disk with mustang length axles and wheel back spacing you'll have to do more research

Actually, the svo 8.8 was basically a lincoln mark7 rear. It should have 11.5" vented 5-lug brakes, and will be 1 1\2 inch longer then the mustang one, where the 87-88 turbo coupe rear will be vented 10" vented 4-lug and about 3/4" wider then a fox stang.

Basically, 87-93 fox, and 83-85 cougar/bird, all rears are compatable length axles. 94-98 stang, compatable with 86-88 cougar/bird, but 3/4" longer then fox. 99-04 stang axle compatible with 86? Up Lincoln mark 7, but 1 1/2" longer, per side.

Ask a 93 cobra guy why his front disks hat is 3/4"s longer. Its so the wheel offset didn't have to be different from front to rear, so they could run the 87-88 turbo coupe rear.
