Default Ford 8.8 Info

Cross referencing this here...

Figured I would post my links to 8.8 tech i have aquired, never made my own because these were more then sufficient. If people search I hope this will come up for them.

at a glance...

These are the codes you will need when out shopping for your 8.8

Axle tag codes:

3L73 = 3.73 LS

4 10 = 4.10 open

4L10 = 4.10 LS

and so on

Door codes:

41 Open 3200 3.27
