You bought parts from a dark garage, camera without flash. Probably from someone who doesn't like photography as the low light quality of the pictures are poop :lol:



5 lug rears - Scorpio w/ Disc rear end? Looks like stock bushings and diff mount still. Possible viscous LSD? Judging by how short the sleeve on the diff is, looks like a 7.0"...Scoprio Cosworth? Looks like a bigger rear bar on there too.

ZF power steering rack, part references a Scorpio.

Nice! Pop that case off and have a look.

I searched that part number on the rack and it just throws me to Ford Scorpio stuff. I wonder what the ratio is.
