will this fit (8.8 rearend with , LSD, TracLoc). ?

  • Unfortunately, these gears are only going to fit with an open differential.

Helpful (0)

Wondering if this kit fits the 2002 Mustang GT (8.8”, LSD, TracLoc). I see the provided information says the kit fits. However, the reviews say the kit will not fit the 2002. I think PN 2L1Z4215EA is the correct part number for the 02’ vehicle. Thanks.

  • No, this kit will not work with your Mustang since it is only designed for open differentials. It will not fit with an LSD.

    Not the right fit

    This item was not the right fit. Was rebuilding the rear end in my 02 Mustang which is an 8.8 with 28 splines

    Does not work with LSD

    The page says it will work with a limited slip differential but it will not, it does not have space for the LSD clutch plates.
