    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...

    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...

    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.

    Freaking itching to get at it!!!!!!

    Did some reading on another site yesterday and found out that I can accomplish my 2" of lift on the rear using f-150 leafs. Trick is to scrap the main leaf from the f-150 pack and swap the rest on to the explorer main. So I went out on the hunt today and picked up a set of f-150 springs in...

    Spring options?

    I'm trying to do a 2" suspension lift. I was just wondering if there are "taller" leaf packs out there from another truck that would fit my explorer and lift it the required 2 or so inches that I'm looking for? I was going to go with shackles, but they'll have to be extended about 5-6 inches...

    Lock-right and gearing...

    So I was looking at a lock-right setup today. Says that when you turn corners, it makes a ratcheting sound. Anyone who has one of these ever notice that sound? If so, how bad is it? My truck will remain a DD for a long time, I just don't want ppl looking at my truck funny every time I take a...

    You'll never convince me....

    ....that small diesel trucks can't pass emmissions tests in North America!!! There is NO reason at all for not bringing them here! And here's the proof! A new-ish Grand Cherokee But wait!! What's this? Hmm...do I smell a possible swap coming on??
