Is there any good rear end swap write up's out there? I have a new Ford 8.8 rear end coming in a week or so. The builder says it's complete bolt in just like 12bolt would be but I'd like to get a little familar with the whole process before I try and tackle it myself.
Its pretty straight forward - just jack the car up, support the rear with a jack, and the car with jack stands. Disconect everything from the rear (LCAs, shocks, PHR, brakes, etc., etc.). Drop rear down, pull out from under car, install new one in reverse order. Thats about it.
You will need to salvage the caliper mounting plates from your old axle to put on the new one, or buy a new set.
