I ordered a 8.8 inch 3.73 30 spline 1.626 diameter ring and pinion gear set for my '95 Cougar from Jeg's. The teeth are labeled 41-11. These cars are 30 spline right? i need to know if they will fit.

28 spline axles n/m

The 8.8 ring & pinion will work if you have an 8.8 differential.
Our axle splines use 28 spline differentials.

I used the 3.73's out of a 1992 Explorer but the differential
was a 30 or 31 spline.

Hope this helps Curt

The ring & pinion markings of 41-11 are to identify the ratio, you divide the large number (ring gear tooth count) by the smaller number (pinion tooth count) to get the ratio. It doesn't matter tot the ring & pinion set what spline your axles are, since the axles fit into the carrier.

Hope this helps,

Sid
