Im interested in a 3.27 ratio for my 2wd. But I know nothing about this. I've been searching a couple of hours and have read swapping the entire axle OR differential (Im unclear) would be the wisest choice as opposed to a ring and pinion gear by themselves. And a mustang 7.5 differential could be used. So is there a thread/website/manual/video about what is involved and what parts I actually will need? thanks much
when i did my explorer axle swap, i got 3.27 gears. it was a pretty easy, basic bolt in. however, it does lower the rear 4-5". but that's what i needed. in the process, i also gained limited slip and disk brakes.
the mustang axle will not work. the center sections are centered where as the ranger is offset to the passenger side. however, the ring and pinion should work as long as you are going back in the same size differential.
