the rear end is a small 7.5 or 7" or whatever and probably not limited slip, it will work, but may or may not break depending on how you use the car. you want an 8.8 out of a 5.0 liter model. I think the earlier 5.0's (pre 87) had small 7.x rears so you probably dont want one of those either. If I am wrong on something, someone correct me.

I have a 5 lug 8.8" rear axle from a 94-95 5.0 mustang that I was looking to sell that will work and let you run 5 lug wheels instead of the 4 lug parts. I have the matching 5 lug front parts you would need as well.
