    You can get a Ford 8.8 rear with discs out of anything from a '92-97 Grand Marquis and it should bolt right up. Might need a little adaptation for the e-brake cable or whatever. Or you can check on www.car-part.com <-That's a really good junkyard parts search engine.
    Slicktop '91 GS HO 4.30 rear. '82 Mark VI Tudor HO, '90 F-150 XLT, '62 project Heep, '89 Arizona Waggin' and '88 donor in PA, getting combined.

    +1 on the 92-97 axle swap. bunch of info here about whats needed/involved. i myself used that site to locate an axle for my 82 Merc buildup. if youre after a budget build, junkyard explorers and rangers have factory 3.55 and 3.73. finding a Marq or Vic will get you 3.55 at best, and are (in my experience) more difficult to find.

    im sure someone with more experience and knowledge on the subject will chime in.
