it would work after welding new shock mounts and spring perches and for 250$!!! for a 7.5 man seriously youd be betetr off with a 8.8 regardless if your rangers lifted or not just try to find a 8.8 from a ranger with a posi in it but man a 7.5 aint nothing compared to a 8.8 sad to say..

Thats ok, I will keep the 7.5. I was just gonna pull the diff out and put it in mine.

I know, I am not patient at all. That is one of my down falls and gets me into trouble sometimes.

Why are you so against a 8.8? A Ranger 8.8 will bolt right up, just keep a eye out you might get lucky and find one with a 4.10 LS. Call around to some junkyards.

definitaly man and a 8.8 would save you so much more hassle and time why do you wana just buy a 7.5 for the LS??? i mean if you just want a LS then order a brand new one offline for 250$ if thats seriously what you wana do..

2:73 gears!! No don't do it. Would be cheaper to buy a locker and gears for your 7.5!!

I personally would rather replace the whole axle with gears installed from the factory. I don't like setting up gears... Plus, I would rather have an 8.8 anyhow. I'm looking for one now for my truck.

its probably easier to swap the entire axle than it is to put a new differential.
