Hey all, getting rid of a couple bare 8.8 housings I don't need. Both were professionally done on a jig. Tubes straightened if needed, tubes then welded 360 degrees on a jig to the center section and 9" big bearing ends welded on. Housings were cleaned inside, sand blasted outside and fully powdercoated on the outside. Damper brackets have been removed to allow welding of the 9" ends.
Housing 1: 55" Brake flange to brake flange
Housing 2: 56.5" Brake flange to brake flange
They will obviously need gears, carrier, bearings, etc. with custom axles you can order from probably any axle manufacturer. I personally use Strange Engineering. Call them up tell them it's an 8.8 with the Ford 9" big bearing ends and it's X" flange to flange measurement and they will be able to make you an axle set and give you the overall axle flange to axle flange width once axles are installed.
Housing 1 is close to a factory Foxbody and will probably push the wheels about 1/4" further out, or be good for a tubbed 96-04 if you need a shortened rear or to use some really deep dish wheels.
Housing 2 will pull the tires in 1/4" on each side for a 99-04 so you can use a deeper dished wheel, or can probably be used in a 96-98 also depending on wheel offset.
Looking for $650 each picked up in Clinton NJ area. The work and parts alone will cost close to this, nevermind the cost of the rear itself and the 2-3 month wait time most shops have. If you want both or you and a buddy want to take them both at the same time, I will let them go as a package, but you must take both on the same day.
Here is a picture of the 55" housing, but they're both identical apart from the actual measurement. The white spots on the 9" end is not flaking powdercoat, it's just tape residue from me keeping the ends covered. Both housings are recently powdercoated and have not been used since the work was performed, so there are no issues with them at all.
