We're here with the Rear Axle Girdle from Ford Racing. This Rear Axle Girdle will fit all 1986-2014 V8 Mustangs equipped with an 8.8 inch solid rear axle; will not fit the '99-2004 Cobra. It's made of cast aluminum, features a drain plug, fill plug, and two bolts on your differential main caps for added strength. It's designed to clear all factory and after-market panhard bars as well, so it's very low profile. The Girdle comes with everything necessary for installation. Although it does come with a gasket, we do suggest the use of a silicone for a better seal.
