wizard - 2020-06-21 10:36 PM Nice work Marc! What rear axle is that? Calipers and discs?

 

The rear end is 71 Ford 2.77 Borg Warner LSD, As are the calipers and discs.

Powerflite - 2020-06-22 1:59 AM Looks good! (Looks like a Dana 60 to me) Now you'll need to stroke the motor to 543 to match it! That should be strong enough for anything you want to connect it to. Is it shorter than stock? And did you have to make any modifications to the inner body or springs?

 

Its the same width within 1/16". Ihad to remake and move the spring saddles for width and angle and reposition the assembly 1" forward until I get a longer tailshaft made.

Universal is the same which was a bonus, no other mods needed to fit in.

Original wheels still go on as before also.

The motor is mostly stock and staying that way for a long while, I just wanted and good rear end that will be trouble free and this fit the bill nicely with little mods and no mods to the car body or springs etc.

Was a lot of work but worth it.
