2003 Ford Explorer XLT and 2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer Edition, Parts Compatibility

20

Asked by Mar 29, 2014 at 12:08 PM about the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT V8 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all,
I've been told I am in need of a new rear differential as mine is on the way out and whining. I have a 2003 Ford Explorer XLT, 4.6L V8, and was wondering if I most parts of a 2002 Eddie Bauer Edition Ford explorer, with a 4.0L V6, would have a large amount of compatible parts I'd be able to interchange. I know the transmissions are different, obviously the motors as well, but what about the rest of the drive train? Also the electronics?
Thanks in advance
Ryan

Most rear differentials can be rebuilt and don't have to be replaced.

Tom, thanks for the fast reply! I feel like I'd rather buy a parts truck, so that I end up with a rear diff I can use, as well as some new tires, and then a mess of other parts I can use to maintain my Explorer. This is why I was considered with not only the compatibility of the rear differential, but of other parts as well. Is there any chance you would know if the two are compatible for the most part? (startor, alternator, drivetrain, electrical components, etc.)
