the ears are where the differential mounts to the subframe. yes the cover will bolt up to a live axle w/o removin the ears.

I learn something new everyday! I never knew about those. I don't need one at the moment being that I kept my SVO cover from my ol' Mustang GT.

They never came on any car. That's aftermarket from the Ford Racing Performance Parts line. The don't look like that anymore. The new ones look like this.


Mine was on a 1988 GT

Yeah, no more SVO - that was the unique part of it - some small connection back to the SVO Mustangs. Dangit I wish I never sold mine!
