How wide, drum to drum is the rear diff on an Aerostar? I was looking at a wrecked van my friend has as a possible donor for my Mercury Zephyr project, since these vans are a trailing arm/coil spring setup. I think the other question would be, what are the widths of the mounting points for the control arms and spring pockets? Just want to make sure it would be worth my time grabbing this diff.

why don't you look at it with a tape measure? write down the numbers, and measure the one in your zeph...

[FONT=&quot]I'm suffering from Deja Vu and Mad Cow at the same time today and I think I have forgotten this before.... so don't listen to me......:idea:
But, weren't the 1990 to 1995 Aerostar diff's about 59.75"?????

Although I do believe Jonzo has the better advise....

Because measuring it myself requires laying on my back in a big mud puddle with it snowing, so asking on here seems a lot less painfull....

OOOH....well in that case, if you'd like I will wander the mile or so up the road and lay on my back in a big puddle of mud while it's snowing here too and measure up the neighbours rear end....... :rolleyes:

PS....that is exactly how I met my husband.....

OOPS.... Now there's a Blonde moment!!!!! :blush2:

Suppose it would have been helpful if I had typed what I was actually thinking
measure up the neighbour's Aerostar's rear end
And just to show you all how stupid I am today, I am not even going to edit my original post to correct it......
