It doesn't really matter what 8.8-inch housing DTS starts with since it cuts the axle tubes to the proper length for the application. We had the company install 9-inch Torino bearing ends to the axle tubes. This is a much safer way of securing the axleshafts to the housing than the stock C-clips the 8.8 uses. If you want the whole 9-inch package, DTS offers 9-inch housings for late-model Mustangs that will work in the Factory Five application as well, including the FR/9 housing with improved geometry for better traction.
