    Yeah but a fox body carrier is also different from, say, a 99-04 new edge GT carrier. IIRC the fox body carriers are/were popular because you could wedge another clutch pack in there due to the design of the carrier.

    I do see looking up the PN that it only shows 03/04 marauder, that is really strange. Of all the things Ford invested money into for this car, why would this car need its own 28 spline diff?

    Apparently this seller has a NOS one on ebay

    03 maurader spider gears?

    05+ Crown vic 31 spline spiders are a direct fit. Toss in some axles and a Cobra clutch pack.

    If your car has 270,000 miles on it, it would probably be cheaper and quicker for you to find a low mile complete 3.55 locking rear out of a 06+ police car. At that many miles, I can’t see the axles or ring and pinion gears being in great shape. Swap the entire rear and be done.

    Ring and pinion look great. Replaced axles and bearings along with clutch packs. Thats how I found the trashed spider gears. Waiting on spider gears now.

    They look great considering. Not sure if they had been replaced before I bought the car.

    Any repairs without going to an Eaton (no clutch pack) differential is a waste of time and money. An Eaton Truetrac is probably best, although an Eaton Detroit locker is OK, too.

    Clutch pack diffs are a wear item - a Truetrac or Detroit Locker will never wear out or break (even a modified Marauder, with less than 750(?) horsepower, and sticky tires. The 31 spline axle shafts will break first)!

    Ask Curless - he knows, too

    No, I have a pretty bad ass parts guy at my local dealer... Jerry was here with me when we discovered nothing is the same as any other 8.8 rear... The gears in a Marauder diff are different thicknesses than the other carriers...

    Ok guys an update...got a complete used carrier from mustangeddie . The carrier and gears are from a 98-04 mustang. Everything works perfect as it should. I did rebuild the clutch packs but the ones that came with the used carrier looked ok so they will be spares for the future.
    Thanks again to everyone who helped me get this figured out. I would have never guessed the marauder had a marauder specific carrier and gears. But I've definitely learned something new about my car AKA the million dollar marauder as my coworkers call it lol.

    You have to buy the mustang carrier. They do not make spider gears for the marauder not even aftermarket. Why the marauder has specific carrier is beyond me.
