Theres probably a code stamped into it somewhere. I think most Chevys are on the front of the passenger side and Pontiacs had some on the rear of the drivers side.

I'm just trying to find out in case I would ever need an axle. Maybe it was narrowed, but I don't know why someone would narrow a 8.2 instead of the 8.5 or a ford.???

Most measurements I see go by outside axle flange to axle flange, (meaning were the rim would sit against).

Well my rear is 51" Backing plate to Backing plate.

My car is a 66 chevy II

Gm used this rear from 62 -67 in the chevy II
They also put in a 12 bolt in 66 and 67 in the Higher HP models.
Good luck finding one used for less than $1800

How strong are the 8.2's ? When I bought my car it was a 4 cyl, but I'm in the process of changing to a sbc that will have around 400 HP.
