Sorry you got overlooked. X

57 1/2 inches wheel to wheel on all 57-72 Ford cars and pickups,

Some 78-79-80 Lincoln Versailles, Granada, Monarch with disc brakes.

car type is an easy bolt in 4 1/2 inch bolt circle, pickups springs are on top, have to be changed and the pickup bolt pattern is 5 1/2 requires redrilling to 4 1/2.

This should be 8" narrower than what you have.

The discs are popular and nice and showey, but the drums will stop very well, especially those big 11 inchers from trucks.

By the way axles are easy to get. All 28 spline small bearing axles are the same between 9 inch and 8 inch from Granadas, etc.

There are 3 different wheel bearing sizes, but that is irrelavent to your useage.

Check the bolt diameter on the backing plates, and the dimensions between the bolts. Some will, and some won't. Then you have to watch out if the wheel flange is too far from the housing end. They vary about .300 if I remember.

check the tag under a bolt to see what you have.

If you ever run across a pickup in the yard, and the door code says something like 31A.... instead of just a number or letter, you have a 31 spline posi gear ratio A.
