      The 17x9 on back I had to use 3/8 spacers to push the wheels out. I still have about 1/2 clearance to the quarters. I do have offset leafs. I bought the spring perches from 4 wheel parts. They have just about everything for an 8.8. I used the 8 3/4 hangers

              Most of those guys who complain about things like 8.8" Ferd swaps either bought/built their cars when Mopar axles assemblies were more plentiful...or they're rich. The 8.8 is a damn good axle and they're actually available in most boneyards.

              Ha!! I love the Autobot logo. I'm not a fan of the 2007-2017 movies but the 80s kid in me is thrilled by that. :D

                  Ha! That's great!
                  Thundercats, Voltron, GoBots, G.I.Joe, He-Man...those were good days.

                  I don't know about you but the Transformers were one more way for me to get cars into my life as a kid. I couldn't ever get enough. :D

                  I have a '73 Dart and a rear end out of a 1998 mustang that I believe is 61" if I remember right or just short of. either way to the outside of the fender I have 4.5 to the flange.. I really wanted to get away with not having to shorten the axle I bought 245/60 r15s to put all the way around and was told by my local tire shop a 4.5" backspace would fit but I'm doubting that. I plan on rolling the fenders and i already have us car tools leaf relocation kit in it. I wanted to go with vintiques. I found their 38 series has 5" backspacing. any help would be awesome 20200104_201134.jpg 20200109_110021.jpg

                  You can order weld wheels w/ about any backspace u want . Plus they are liter and reduce weight, "if that matters to u ."

                    That looks nice! Tell me, how does the driveshaft clear the tunnel etc. when you run one uncut?

                    I don’t have any issues. Hardest part was finding a set of wheels I liked that fit properly.
