That's a rare one. Every Granada that came through the dealers I worked for had an 8". I only heard rumors of a Granada 9".

I think the rear was originally in a 77 Bronco, and someone put Grenada calipers on it if we deciphered the tag correctly. The story I got was that it came out of a 240 built by a company who did 5.0 conversions. It sat in the sellers parts yard for years and no one there really knew anything else about it. The p/n on the caliper lead back to a Grenada, but they could possibly fit something else as well, it was just a quick search out of mild curiosity since they were getting scrapped anyway.

I doubled my investment yesterday with an order to Jegs for the Ford racing carbon fiber clutch disk kit and a new driveshaft u-joint yoke that I didn't feel like going back to the j/y for. I'm gonna start cutting off Ford brackets maybe this evening or tomorrow after work, will drag the 1030 out this weekend to start bracket swap over.

What kind of limited slip do you find in 8.8?
