2003 Ford F-150 Q&A

2003 Ford F-150 Question: Automatic to 5 speed switch on rear end, is it possible if it's same year?

The rear end has gone out in our truck, we have found one for sale that is used. Ours is an automatic transmission and a 2wd, the one for sale is same year, still 2wd, but is a 5 speed, will it still work as long as it's limited slip? -
Answer 1
Manual trans. usually has a lower ratio differental. Limited slip or not, doesn't matter as far as working. It should 'work'. IF it's MUCH difference in ratio, may give some ABS and trans. shift problems, i just dont know for sure! -
