Sport Trac Rear Axle

I need to know the differences in the Sport Trac rear axle vs the standard Explorer and a Ranger.

I know the Sport Trac is baised on the Ranger extended cab frame.

I have a guy that needs to replace his rear axle assy. and I need to know what I'm looking for to make the complete swap easy for both of us.
(blew it up spraying on it!)

*someone call Johnstone lol!*


BTW this is a 2001 2wd Sport Trac

The explorer 8.8 (95+) has discs and is 31 spline.. All ranger 8.8's have drums and are 28 spline with the exception of the FX4. 01-02 sport tracs have 31 spline 8.8's with drum brakes. 03+ sport tracs have 8.8's with discs. Also, I think there may be some minor differences between the sport trac 8.8 and the explorer 8.8.

The sport trac and explorer have the same rear end with the exception of brakes (as mentioned above) I have performed axle swaps on both and they are complete bolt on.....

I was shocked when I looked under my sport trac and realized the 8.8 had drums. Why did they do this, when regular explorers have had disc since '95.?

I'm a new sport trac owner so sorry for bringing this old thread up.
