Hey board, want to get some input on what people are doing in the rear diff area on mustangs, is anyone using a traction lock diff or just welding the gears? also i know the 8.8 is heavier than the 7.5 but you can get a spool for it, any thoughts on pros or cons of the two? thanks

i run a 7.5 welded just make sure to ground the inside housing and not the out side it will mess up bearings pretty bad know this from experience.

weld the gears, posi track is a very touchy depending on circumstances and who set the rear end up the posi may or may not lock, welded gears are the next best thing to a spool
