Anyone know what all rear ends will bolt directly into a 1995 Mustang? Will a Bronco rear end work? Are there any other options? I'm looking for a complete posi/limited slip diff that I can swop out without any major mods.

there are no junkyard 9 inch or similar axles that directly bolt into your car -- pinion offset is your biggest concern -- you want the driveshaft to stay aligned and also they do not have the brackets to bolt up to your trailing arms-----

if you are replacing a 7.5 V-6 rear axle in your car the only option you have is an 8.8 rear axle out of a 1986 thru 1998 mustang ( all have traction-lok carriers) -- housings in these years are all the same width just use your axles and brakes from the 7.5 to keep the overall rear axle width the same.

if you want to move up to a 9 inch axle -- Moser Engineering , Currie Enterprises , Strange Engineering and others all have 9 inch housings and axles that will bolt right into your car. ---most are available from Summit or Jegs if you do not want to order directly from the suppliers mentioned above.

Ya, myself, i think the 8.8 is a little under rated. My buddys 90 GT has only had a 8.8 and its been very reliable. Heres is his car which had a box stock 302 and a big ass turbo making 630hp/650tq at the wheels(about 25psi boost). The rear end is the factory 8.8 with a mini spool and 3.25 gears

So that being said, im sure you will be fine with a 8.8 rearend

Check out Quick Performance. He made one for my torino. Super nice guy and can build them as strong as you like. I got a thick tube housing/bearings/31 spline axles and disc brakes with lines for just over 1000. No shipping on that as I picked it up from his shop. Also got a stupid heavy Yukon case for 240. He gets an A+ from me.

Just the housing:

Ninja edit. I didn't realize you have a 95. I'm pretty sure the housings are the same but the axles are a little longer, something to do with ABS. Might want to look into that if you're swapping an 8.8 also.
