I have a chart for the 9" in these cars, I would think the 8" is the same width(disclaimer ) It lists the '65 as 52 1/4" total width flange to flange, and the '69 as 54 1/4" total. So if info is correct the '69 is 2 inches wider, the spring pads are the same distance apart.

yes.. won't work w/ factory rims. '69 and 70 stangs are a wider body car, so things like that arn't quite right.. you could get rims to correct the offset tho.. 2" is all you would need
