Default 9in in 1995 bronco and VSS

I am doing an SAS in my bronco with a d44 in front and 9in in the rear. But stock rearend has the vss on the differential and i am wondering how to convert that to the 9in rearend or ideas on what to do

I don't have all the information, but this is what I know.

You will need a tone ring on your carrier, then drill and tap a hole for the VSS to be inserted either into the carrier, or the rear pumpkin. I would do carrier, because it would be easier to get the correct measurements. Gap your VSS to your tone ring and you should be able to have a properly shifting and speedo working Bronco.

I would personally skip the 9" install and sell it to buy a sterling 10.25 that has the speed sensor in it qlready. Plugs right into the factory harness. You will have to reprogram the computer and there is a write up over at FSB on how to do it. Takes about 5 minutes and is NOT difficult. I have gone this route already with my 96. My stuff is all swapped in and I just have to fix the front coil bow.

I still would not over look the stoutness of the 8.8" rear. It will be the most plentiful axle at every junkyard under every F150, Bronco, and E150 van and you will be able to keep your 5 lug pattern. You can pick them up less than dirt cheap, and always can get spare axleshafts anywhere you run.

not a problem, just a different approach thats just as easy of a swap and stronger as long as you find the full float version of coarse.

I dont doubt or am I bashing the 8.8 either. The 10.25 with speed sensor is also found in every F250/350 in the same junk yard. There are some slight differences but basically the same shaft and strength. You mention 5 lug pattern but in his first post he said he was going to do a d44 SAS. May as well upgrade from the knuckle out to 8lug and match the rear while its apart and being rebuilt. Thats the way I did mine. Rebuilt the front with F250 stuff from the knuckle out. Also while swapping the front stuff remember to use 9/16" wheel studs so the lug nuts are the same size as the 10.25 rear.
