Hey guys...

As the subject asks, it's a 91 NC 5.0 Fairlane, standard spec. Some nights, while lighting up the rears, she spins both tyres with ease, while on others (especially when some mates are around) she'll only single-spins...

1. I thought the 5.0 Fairlanes were LSD?
and
2. Does anyone know the ratio these barges have?

Thanks

I've had Fords since the 80's, Fairlanes NC NF NL V8s only came from the factory with open wheeler diffs. If you wanted the LSD diff you needed to option it (pay extra). Only the Farimont GHIAs EB EF EL V8s came standard with LSD diffs as standard from factory. LTDs all came with the LSD diffs. Ive got original broscures and books stating this plus have owned various models that proved this to be true. Rob
