What size rear-ends did Ford trucks use? Because I think F-150's have 3.55 gears.

I know for a cheap five lug conversion that you can use pre-1991 Mark VII front rotors. They mount on real good with the oh so sought after 5x4.5(114.3) Lug Pattern. For the rear you can use two driver side pre 1991 ford ranger axles. They are 28 spline and you will need the 10inch brake drums. BUT why do all this when you can go to JEGS.COM and they have five lug conversion kits for under 400 bones. The whole kit & kaboodle. P.S. anyone know where i can get a 94-95 rearend. debating the whole IRS issue ya know. thanks

Some Ford trucks were available with traction lock rears. These are 31 spline and they are rebuildable. I have one in my car with Moser axles.

i found a tech article once, talking about using Ranger axles in the rear, for the 5 lug conversion. You still got drums, but its a cheap 5 lug conversion....

There's lots of goodies in that "Official 79-93 5.0L Performance Manual"
by Al Kerchabulm. Its about 40 bucks and talks about GTP heads, and stuff.

Or you can have your local library buy a copy for you
