Hey pro's: I found a 3.55 rear from a TB turbo coupe with disk brakes for sale.... never been rebuilt buy suposedly doesn't leak.. has brake cables, etc.. Does anyone know if this will fit w/ a 3link rear? Is it the same width as the fox body rears? It's a 4 lug, will the fox width 5 lug axles fit and still work with the brake brackets and calipers (would obviously have to get new rotors). Also does anyone know if the turbo tranny will bolt up the a 5.0 mustang 89 block (he's got a T5 as well)..
thanks, just trying to find parts... due to pu my MkIII 3/19....

If the rear is reasonably priced it is a good deal. It is 3/4 of an inch wider per side than the FX rear. This is not a problem unless you want to run wide wheels and tires.

If you want 5 lug and FX track, use the TC brakes with our brackets and Ranger axles. Breeze and/or Disc brakes R us sell redrilled TC rotors for 5 lug. In the end, good gears and discs for relatively low money.

The E brake cables will not work. The trans is not a good deal as the the TC T-5s are geared different. Something like a 411 first.
HTH, Cheers Richard.
