    I'm pretty sure they are 7.5's, and the differential is off center in those rears. Just stick with a mustang rear and dont try junkyard shopping.

    7.5.
    The rear end wont work in a Mustang due to the offset- the reason you need two passenger side Aerostar axles to do a 5 lug swap.

    The gears are different. I believe the 7.5" and 8.8" refers to the diameter of the ring gears.
