Tonus he said he was gonna use an 8.8 in the starion subframe. probably just use a lsd diff from a t-bird turbo coupe after that.
That's weird. The StarQuests are independent rear, where-as the setup that Craig had used a solid rear axle. I'm pretty sure the t-bird turbo coupes were IRS though as well, but can't remember. Not sure why he'd use the example of Starion axles being stronger if he wasn't planning on using them. :-k

All conquest came with 3.55 gears!! I plan on using the 89 conquest setup unless it fails. Then I have a explorer 8.8 That I retofit into the conquest subframe. Craig and I both agree that the Conquest rearend should hold up fine. But its nice to know that the 8.8 Fits nicely.

As you can see here the difference between the 1g axle and the Quest axle.

I was also able to get some pretty solid measurements from hubface to hubface. (without the rotor)
Conquest = 56 1/4"
The colt axle = 59"
Ford 8.8 solid 58 1/2"-59 1/2"
