      great idea

      when i was looking for a transmission a while back the guy at the scrap yard was trying to sell me one from an awd areostar, said that all id need to do st swap the shifter linkage over because their opposites ie, park is first.

      I guess thats one spot to get a good transmission that hasn't been rat-bagged.

      It's that fitting that made it the perfect fit for mating my 1st gen steering box to my 2nd gen steering column when I did my SAS!

      Can someone forward me a copy (if available) for the interchange for 96 Aerostar AWD transmission to Explorer/Ranger tranny. Does it have to be AWD to AWD or can it be a 2WD explorer/ranger and transfer the adapter plate/transfer case from AWD to 2WD?

      You have to open the transmission to swap the rear tail housing output shafts if you want to convert a 2WD to AWD or 4WD or vice versa. It's possible to do, but is a lot of work.

      actually i thought rangers of this era had twin i-beams. i guess what really want to know is what other ford products share the same front suspension. the rear should be easy to drop, but the front is another thing. for the record,93 aerostar ,3.0 V6, 2WD pretty standard.

      we used to have an Aerostar Xl Reg length.

      we then got a used 94 Taurus(which will be revived within the next month)

      and our sadly dying 98 Explorer

      list

      I too would appreciate a list, since all the explorers at the scrapyard are always stripped of parts. THNX desastr_20@hotmail.com

      Do you think I could use an Areostar front axle u joints inner and outer to replace mine on my 93 Ford Explorer?

      I am currently having issues finding this part because dealerships are telling me this product is discontinued for my year.

      Thanks,
      Christina

      Can I also get a copy as well. I am having issues finding a replacement for my front axle inner and outer u joints for my 93 ford explorer and I'm being told by the dealerships that that part is discontinued.

      My email address is creid011@email.cpcc.edu

      Thanks!

      Christina, those u-joints are a very common part and you will find them at any Napa, Autozone, etc.

      I am interested, because i am losing a battle with 95xlt e4wd. i need to get new exhaust manifolds for both sides. i can find the manifolds for the 3.0 liter everywhere, but nobody has the 4.0. if the explorer manifolds fit that would solvemy problem
