howdy howdy, I have a question about the legendary 8.8 swap, is it necessary to shorten? I don't have welding experience to do it myself and it would be rather expensive to pay a shop to do it where I live, probably more than the rear end is worth to do it. (crazy suckers wanted 150 bucks at the local garage to swap a muffler!? Doing the rear end is gonna be bonkers) also while your here is a mustang 8.8 rear end the same as the explorers? mustangs are much more abundant than explorers where I live.
