'86 rear end housing ?

Hi guys!

I'd like to swap my rear end with Strange 5-lug SN95 axles/c-clip/spool, SN95 brake parts.

Do I need to change the whole rear end housing and tube or the parts will bolt-in ? Is V6 3.8L diff. housing the same as GT V8 ?

Thanks

forget it, I found the answer, will need to get rid of the 7.5" and change the whole thing so I'll try to find a 1994-1995 8.8 rear end!

But another question hehe:

Do my V6 driveshaft bolt to the 8.8 rear end ? Or maybe a V8 driveshaft slip int he V6 transmission ?

I want the car to be functional before I drop the engine and c4 transmission.

I'm pretty sure the v6 driveshaft will bolt right in. In fact, I think the v6/v8 driveshafts are identical

the driveshafts bolt up the same, and you dont really need a housing from a 94-95 the 8.8 housings are the same from '87-'98 so you can swap 94-98 V6 rear brakes (axles and all brakes) right into any 87-98 8.8 housing

You can also use 1986 8.8 Mustang housings, as those are also identical to 87-98 housings.
