Introducing XPerformance's Ford 8.8” rear end differential conversion kit for the S2000. This patent pending kit replaces the OEM Honda differential and axles with a Ford 8.8” differential and axles. The kit is the most complete on the market and requires no modification to the vehicle.
This kit has been specifically engineered to direct the driveline stresses in the same way that the OEM’s engineered the parts. This means the front mounts will not break off and the loads are distributed properly to the OEM s2000 bushing locations. The cradle and differential case have been designed to work together with the vehicle to ensure it can handle the abuse. Although we build our mounting cradles out of steel, as opposed to a weaker metal, the kit is only 15 lbs. heavier than the OEM parts that are being replaced. The kit is designed with as close to equal length axles as possible, giving you optimal power distribution to the wheels. No modification or cutting is required besides shaving your differential housing in a few spots. Utilizes 2006-2010 Ford Explorer differential with stronger collar mounts vs. other differential such as the T Bird/Cobra housing which are prone to breaking with two piece design mounts.
