Default axle swap info needed, from a Sport Track

Did Sport Tracs, or Explorers, ever come with Torsen differentials?

Are Sport Trac axles identical to Explorer? need spring perch & shock mount?

What years Sport Trac axles will work?

I did ckeck out the tech library, didn't find much info on newer trucks.



I'm re-gearing my 2000 Ranger from 3.73 to 4.10, partially to deal with slightly larger tires, but primarily because of the (not so) mighty 3.0 under the hood. Front diff purchased, waiting on seals and some paint.
Figgured it would be a good time to swap out the 7.5 for an 8.8 with a Torsen diff. This will be a daily driver, 99.99% time on the pavement. I know the FX4 level II is a direct swap, and Explorer axles need the spring perch & shock mounts. Possible future engine swap, 3.2L SHO V6.

Yes, I do want a Torsen instead of a locker or traction -lok. I feel they are better for a street only truck.

Almost bought a Ranger 8.8 4.10 with a Torsen today, popped the cover off and found an aftermarket locker instead. What a waste of fuel and time.
