well this isnt 4x4 related but my g/f dad has a 1968 mustang and wants to know what diff it has in it. i looked under it and the 3rd member comes out the front so does that mean its a 9 inch? im a chevy guy i dont know much about ford diffs. any help is appreciated.

look on the tag where it says what the gear ratio is and I beleave the first set of numbers is the ring gear dieameter.

In an older Stang like that it should be an 8 inch ford rear end.
