    Need some direction

    hey guys. I just picked up a '96 explorer with a 302. Was just wondering if anyone has a list of what's needed out of the donor truck to swap it in to my '99 explorer. Haven't worked my way over to the tech section yet. Any help here would be great. Thanks in advance Edit Keep in mind...

    Draining the trans??

    Ok, so I went to a retail store yesterday to pick up some trans fluid to do a filter change on my 5r55e. I had to ask where the trans fluid was because the damn store doesn't put it front and center like my favorite parts shop does(my parts shop was closed :annoyed:) Keep in mind that I DID...

    question for the fellas that have done the eb 44 swap

    Considering your knuckle turns at the same rate as the wheel, I don't see a problem with it. As long as it's directly beside the wheel itself and not the tire. The bulge from the sidewall could cause a problem or two if that's the case.

    IAC Problems...

    So I replaced my IAC valve not long ago. Replaced it because, on startup, the truck would rev up...then come down and almost die. When I pulled it off, I noticed the shaft inside was rusty and incredibly dirty. Replacing the IAC valve seemed to fix that issue, but the RPM would stay up much...

    Lateral play??

    Just wondering how much lateral play the axle shafts should have in the 31 spline 8.8?? Noticed some play when I had the wheels off the ground not long ago. Kinda scared me...was going to look into c-clip eliminators if this is a problem...

    A couple 9" questions...

    it would be more than that. The 8.8 on the explorer is only 59" wide according to the charts in the tech library and the econovan axles "should" be 68". I'm just trying to get as close as possible 'cause I can't stand the look when the front is wider than the rear. The old chevy 3/4 tons are...

    A couple 9" questions...

    Yeah..I was leaning towards custom shafts..but I have no clue how much that would set me back and not sure where I'd get that done around here. Ideally I'd like to maybe come across some shafts that have the 4.5" bolt pattern that are long enough to swap in. Although I doubt that any of those...

    I posted this same thing in the Ranger axles section and didn't notice. So I'm re-posting here. Sorry. So to start things off, I'm looking into saving up for the Dixon Bro's Racing long travel coilover swap for my Explorer. http://www.dixonbrosracing.com/content/view/8/6/ It says it...

    Ford 9" questions...

    So to start things off, I'm looking into saving up for the Dixon Bro's Racing long travel coilover swap for my Explorer. http://www.dixonbrosracing.com/content/view/8/6/ It says it makes the truck 4.5" wider per side. Based on my measurements, I'd have to find a rear axle that measures 68.5"...

    Anybody know?

    I was wondering if anyone here knows if a Lockrite or a NoSlip would work if I install c-clip eliminators first?? :icon_confused: Specs: 1999 Explorer w/8.8" rear and 4.10 gearing. Looking to buy the c-clip eliminators, but only if they work with lockers.
