Fox Rear in a New Edge?
 
Can i use a fox rear in a New edge with wheel spacers or different off set wheels?

Im getting to the point where its time to address my rear end while the car is up, just need to know my options. Thanks.


I found one post

"it wont fit properly"

But why? What wont?? Etc.

Thanks guys!

Why a fox one? Just pick up a new edge one from a junkyard. Do you have a 4 lug fox one?

Maybe you could also try Craigslist, I see people parting out new edges all the time on there.

The reason i ask about a fox rear, The places i go, and the forums i frequent, fox body mustangs and drag racing are a dime a dozen, and ive found multiple, multiple built to the hilt rears with everything i could want and 5 lug swapped, c clip elim. 33 or higher spline, etc. etc. for 1000 or less complete with brakes, aero etc.

Just a plentiful option i suppose.

i believe they are just a 1.5 inches thiner on each side. everything should bolt right up

I heard Sn95 rears are 3\4 total shorter than New Edge Sn95s.
Foxbody are even wider than sn95 rear axle assy?

I read New Edges has the widest axle assy till 2005 which I believe are wider than New edge?

sorry, guess i should have said the fox's are 1-1.5 narrower each side, i think its each side. but anyways, the fox axle will bolt up. i thought about doing this so i could run more dish in my wheels but ended up getting a 03 irs. its more common to find fox axles around here too, built too

As posted, fox's rears are shorter. IMO, too short to safely run spacers - especially if you are going to be racing it. Get the right stuff for you car instead of trying to rig it up.

what about wheels with different off sets?

school boy 12-19-2011 12:31 PM

a wheel with a correct offset would be like factory wheels on the factory axle, works fine. if the op bought nice hub centric spacers, i dont see any danger in running them. companies like H & R, and Maximun Motorsports wouldnt produce them if they're dangerous
