Thanks for your reply.
Where did you find the Ford 9" and did you need to rebuild it? That would
be an ideal rear-end since I am planning on 350 hp. I don't have a problem
moving the spring perches. Figured I would be doing that however it worked
out. Did the 62" width cause and problems with tire clearance? I am hoping
to fit 9" X 15" rear wheels. 8" if the 9s won't fit. What is the set-back
on your rims?
What is the rest of the driveline and suspension on your panel?
One final question, were the brake parts from the '66 disc or drum? I am
hoping to go discs all around.
Guess I loaded up on questions here. Whatever you can answered will help
