GM rear end widths info Christmas gift request

Re: Christmas gift request


Iím working on my wife to get a new rear end for Christmas. Ok guys calm down itís for my 36 Truck!

Doing rough measurements on paper, of a selection of wheel back spacingís and body width Iím ending up needing a rear end around 66Ē from wheel mounting surfaces on axel shafts.

To keep things consistent I would like to use something from GM possibly 1988 and up and 6 lug but not floating.

I have charts showing GM made OEM non floating 6 Logs rear ends but canít find actual measurements to know what is even out there to work with.

To save money a junkyard find that I could refurbish and upgrade later would work. I could redesign but would like to keep extra body work down if I can.

So does anyone have information or know of a web site with GM rear end widths info?

Happy thanksgiving to all

And have a Christmas you will never forget Öand a new yearís party you find hard to remember.

Mike
