Re: Lincoln 9"
Can't verify your specific swap is go/no-go bolt-on, but I can share my own experience. I replaced the 8-inch rear in my 66 Fairlane with a 9-inch out of a 69 Cougar. Here are the differences I encountered:
1. The spring perches are in different locations - required relocating the perches.
2. The pinion yoke is further forward - required shorter driveshaft.
3. The vent tube and brake line y-block located the opposite side - had to move them.
4. The flange to flange distance is slightly longer - may cause some wheel/tire fitment issues.
