should be a set of 8.8's, to start, not 8.5...the rest id up to these guys. From what I understand, both have 28-spline axles, so I think other than the bearings, it should be a go. But, like I said... let these boys here answer definate or not.
Yes it will fit with no problems. IRS/ non-IRS doesn't matter. The non-IRS has the grooves on the clips for installation. It fits and works like it should. Rich has one in his car, dirtyd0g says it works, Gus has one in his Mark. It works! I'll be puttin one in too.
excellent!!! now just to get him to bring it into class maybe we could spend a part of the day doing that, after we finish building. anything extra i should buy or anything i should do when i get to putting it in?
I was told if it's in good condition then you don't need anything extra but a rebuild kit wouldn't hurt. The t-loc swaps into the stock case. Get a professional to do it though. Just my knowledge combined with others.

I was wondering who uses overdrive (O/D) when driving around town (speeds under 55). I am always flipping the O/D button depending where I am driving. Does it cause wear to the trans. if the O/D is disabled for extended times. At constant highway speeds I always enable the O/D.
When accelerating then letting off the accelerate Im getting a slight clunking from the rear of my car, it's mostly when the car is cold, sounds like something is knocking back and forth in the trunk area, haven't got a chance to get her on a lift yet. Not sure if this is a problem people run...
