    I would also like to get some more information on the 8.8 rear end. Make, model, year and their widths, which have discs, gear ratios etc.

    The answer to your second question is on the first page of this thread. I don't know the answer to your second. I could have measured some axles directly, but they got thrown away earlier this year(severely rusted from a flooded outbuilding).

    A fox 8.8 rear end is the same width as a 67 Mustang rear end. We are developing a bolt-in rear sub-frame that will let you bolt-in the 8.8 from a fox.
