EL camino rear end

I have a 65 tempest with a 1 leg in it . Could anyone tell me if a 70 El Camino rear end will bolt in without changing anything? Did the wideth change in 68?

Yes---the width changed in 68
1" overall wider

The later rear will bolt right in, but you will have to use the later model
springs as the earlier rear has different perches on the axle, and are bolted
down with a retainer.

Might have to double check backspacing on your wheels.
That extra 1/2" might have an affect on the tire rubbing the
wheel well.
