This is not pertaining to my Thunderbird but my Ranger. (8.8 rear end) I picked up an 8.8" 3.73 TL rear end out of a junk yard. After bringing it home I popped the cover off to inspect the clutches.
- There was no "S" spring. Isn't this necessary? Can I order one separately and if so is there one that is better than others? I thought I have read something about using a F-150 spring.
- What stacking order? I have seen several threads about the alternate stacking order for the clutches. Is this for longevity, performance or both? If they will last longer in the original order I would go with that since it is only going in a 4 cylinder truck. If I go with the alternate stacking order I have to reuse one of the old friction plates. How can you tell if they are too worn to reuse?
- Same question for the carbon friction kit. Is it for performance, longevity or both?
