Post rear end spacing

I'm getting close to putting a 9" rear end in my 41 2dr. and I would like to know if anyone out there knows what the approx flange to flange dimension would be. I want to use 15" x 8" rimes. Thanks for any help.

I downloaded the 9" info. Great resource. Is there a source for drum to drum measurement? Also, there are many makes not listed. I'm looking for a 57" to 57.5" drum to drum 8 or 9". Prefer the 9.

Just measure what you need axle flange to axle flange. The 1959-1972 FORD pickup will give you 57" flange to flange.

If a rear is slighly off-size for your particular application, you can make up the difference(s) with rear wheel offset. You can also have a custom length made-

I would be very carefull using the Ford rear end I.D. web page there is some good info there. But i know for a fact that several(if not all) of the flange to flange measurements are dead wrong. Not trying to be a wise guy but i buy and cut these rears all the time and those measurements dont jive.(some sound like they may have measured backing plate to backing plate which means nothing)
Just beware.I would measure a 70 ford truck rear before i bought it as i think i have one on the floor now that is about62- 63-64 inches,(dont remember cause i have to cut it) Just check. The # dont sound correct.66 mustang is about 59 i believe.
