    I have a 95 GT WITH 8.8 w/ 2.73 gears. It has ABS. My question is what problems will arise it I replace rear end with a non ABS rear. I have found a good 8.8 W/ 3.55 gears cheaper than it would be to rebuild mine but it's non ABS.

    Just swap in your axles and backing plates for the brakes and no problems!

    Orr orrr you could be a badass and say no to abs haha. It would run the same you just wouldn't have trac control and your abs light would be on all the time. My cable got severed so that's how I'm running lol

    I forgot that the ABS is in the backing plate. The only problem is that I have a bent axle and I don't want to pay the $100 bucks from a salvage yard for a single axle.

    Knock the abs rings off your old axles and tap them back on the un bent axles
