I have a Ford 8.8.
The casting numbers on the rear diff are F0ZW-AAD.
The tag reads:
S207C X
L08 88 5C29
But the brake mounts read
COBRA RH
COBRA LH
And appear to be factory installed. Is this possible? Limited slip 308 Cobra rear end cast in 1990?
Does that even exist? Go15741923642974699995117564674572.jpg15741923908642447113606420582071.jpg15741924105366823790893018115476.jpg1574192443717535791339099380203.jpg

@FoxChasis may respond, he seems to be an authority on part numbers. All I can tell you is it's an 3.08 gear track lock
Thanks you can see the gears outside just inside the hub face, does that make it 94 and up? mostly I'm trying to identify it because I'm thinking about using it in a diesel trike project. So obviously I'm going to need to add brake suspension etc etc

I think I may have just found the answer to my questions. I found this on LMR's website. I'm pretty sure this came out of a manual transmission 94 to 98 mustang and then somebody swapped out the Cobra supports to facilitate their choices brakes. Any confirmation (or correction) of that would be appreciated.

The differential HOUSING was originally engineered for 1990 Mustang. The housing is for an 8.8 it and was used until a major revision was required.

Date on the tag is from 1995.

S207C = axle code (S = Sterling axle plant)
X
3L08 = 3.08:1 axle ratio, Traction-Lok differential
88 = 8.8" ring gear
5C29 = axle assembly built on March 29, 1995
