Need axle reccomendation for A bone
So those of you with slammed, channeled, fenderless model A's what rear axle is wide enough to clear the body? My math tells me with a shallow 3.5" backspace on the wheel I'll still need around a 66" wide axle (wheel pad to wheel pad on the drums)! There aint many of those out there.....
The body is 55" wide, add an inch on each side for tire to body clearance, add 7" for the back space and another 2" for tire hang over on the wheels and we're at 66". Not sure what to drag out of my local pick N pull. What are you guys running?

I'm hearing a 90-2005 Crown Vic 8.8" might do the trick...anyone know what these things measure out to?
