yes i have know that they have solid axles for along time and yes they do have a ruffer ride. yes we all agree on that. but solid axles do have a diff. and i belive that people with 325s who have done motor swaps or have too much power for the stock diff. have used the ford 8.8 witch was used in the mustangs on there BMWs. and i did not ask weather it dould do a burnout or not i asked if it would spin only one tire and not the other. cause that would prove if it has a diff or not.Originally posted by triggrhaapi@Nov 23 2004, 02:56 PM
you tell me when I said a solid axle can't do burnouts...
ok, look. If you have a solid axle, you don't have a differential. I've established that the car has a solid axle.
from a USA Today review of the 2005 Mustang GT:
"The Mustang almost wasn't foaled over the issue of rear suspension. "We couldn't make a profitable business case" because the complex independent rear suspension cost too much, Thai-Tang says. The team didn't want to return to a so-called solid or live rear axle, but, "It was a hard choice we knew we had to make. (CEO) Bill Ford is a Mustang fan, but he didn't cut us any slack" on profit margins.
The solid rear axle forces both rear wheels to jump when only one goes over a bump. In theory, that should cause a rougher ride and flighty steering. Nope. Lots of reengineering of spring and shock absorber location and clever design, sizing and placement of suspension components seem to have all but eliminated the ills associated with a solid rear axle, at least during vigorous driving on public roads."
you see where they talk about the solid rear axle? do you? good. Dumbass.
