What size is it 7.5 ? I need a posi for my 72 camaro ss 4 speed model it has a 10 bolt non posi. Is a 69 the same width as a 67? Can you just change the carrier from your 70 to the 67?Best of luck.

Just measure the mounting pads on both diffs to be sure the are spaced right, if not, move them (cut&weld) to the correct place. Cars never have floating axles, I've only ever seen them on large trucks, min 3/4ton.

Me and my wife have a 69 camaro.I replaced the stock 8.2 rear end with a 8.5 out of a 74 nova with 373 posi. It fit fine.The first thing you need to check is the width from backing plate to backing plate.You might have to change the spring perches.What size rear end do you have if it's smaller than a 8.2 i wouldn't mess with it, if you have a motor with horse power.A 8.5 will withstand about 500 horsepower.

I think you will be fine on the width. The 7.5 is in reference to the ring gear diameter. The larger 8.5 is much stronger. You can basically just measure to see what it is.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say something about that. Housing floaters are designed for use with ladder bars and leaf springs. With ladder bars, the axle has a diffferent plane of travel than with the original leaf springs. The floaters allow the axle to use the ladder bar travel plane and the springs to support the wieght of the car.

They will not work for what you are doing unless you want to install ladder bars.
