!/4 inch is much less than I expected...with replacement quarters put on, this is not a definite conclusion that your rear will track straight, but it's a very good sign...Next question...Does one side of the rear end stick out further that the other? Run a plum line down from the quarter then measure from the brake drum to the plum line, measure both sides...this will tell you if you have a great variance from one side to the other...remember though, even new cars did have some variance so what we are looking for is something like over 1/2 inch difference. These measurements are not accurate, what they are doing is giving you an idea of how the car will look driving down the road and a glimps of how it will track.
