Is your front wheel pattern 5 lug?

Going by the above chart ... a 1957/58/59 FORD rear end is 1/2 of a inch more narrow. That would be my choice. BUT IF you want to go with a Chevy rear end :( the 58.00 wide 1978-1988 Chevy Malibu, Monte Carlo would work.

The 9 inch Ford is the most popular rear end swap going ... because of the ease of working on it and finding parts. It is stronger than most any of the other rear ends listed.

I always use the 9 inch Ford under all my projects.
