Does how the rear end opes matter for the internals?

I have a 66 ranchero and before i go tearing the rear end apart i just wanted to know if the limited slip carrier i pulled out of a foxbody with an 8 inch rear end would fit. Only problem is that the ranchero rear end opens at the front and the fox body rear end opens at rear. Both 28 spline, both 8inch, both 10 bolt, i dont see why not but just want to make sure.

Pretty sure two totally different diffs so likely not compatible

Definitely will not work for you. Fox body uses an 8.8", not an 8" ring gear. So, even if you get past the difference in carrier length, bearings, diameter, etc., you can't bolt an 8" ring gear to an 8.8" carrier. Add the problem that if you used an 8.8" ring gear on the carrier, now the pinion gear doesn't fit the 8" case, and so on.

That said, the Ford 8" has limited-slip carriers and simple locker-style inserts that are popular, and install properly.
