chevy ten bolt swap into 72 swinger

I'm working on swapping the sway bar, disc brake and posi rear end out of a 92 IROC into my 72 dodge dart swinger, anyone know where i can find the spring brackets, and the difference is 5 inches in total axle to axle width, should i shorten and get modified axles? or should i just go stinkbug stance and get deep offset wheels, kinda stuck here. any help would be greatly appreciated

wowe you picked pretty much the most difficult axle ytou coud possibly choose to do something like this with


you will ahve to make fabricate your own since this is a unique suspension design only found under the camaros and firebirds 1982 and up, and no other makes or models

these cars used the little bitty 7.5 or 7.625 gm axle

and also the 9 bolt borg warner rears with ratios such as the 3.27

and also supposedly a few rare dana 44 rears but not confirmed positively


i really highly recommend finding a leaf spring axle thats closer to your width and also way stronger than this little baby 7.5 weakling model youre messing with


my great uncle owned a bone stock original no modified in any way 72 swinger dart 318 years ago
i got to drive it for a while
he totally restored it and painted it a light and pretty baby sky blue and the interior was mint clean factory nice

ended up selling it hmm... havent sene it around in lots of years now, some young kid got a hold of it i know and i heard he messed it up etc.

i got a pic of it somewhere hmm


good luck!!
