    Default Mark VII axle will it fit?

    I know a guy who parted out a Mark VII and he still has the rear axle and front brakes/spindles lying around. I could'nt find much info on the mark's axles bolt patters etc. Would this stuff fit? Is it an upgrade? Where could I find some wheels for it?

    Yes it will fit.
    5-on-4.5" (like the 94+ Mustangs)
    1" wider overall over your existing rear axle.

    The gears in my Mark axle were 3.08. The disc brakes are a SOB to get working unless you get the e-brake cables all the way up to the pedals. Otherwise you will have no e-brake and will be self-adjusting them from time to time. I'll still recommend it but It's got some downfalls.

    Axles shafts don't care whether or not it's a TL or not.

    AFAIK 84-85 Mark VIIs had 7.5" axles. I've seen some people with 84-85 Marks on LoL finding out they have 7.5 instead of the 8.8"

    1986+ are all 8.8"

    Bill Blass have 3.08:1 axles

    LSCs have 3.27:1 axles

    Trak-lok was optional on both.
