Rear straps different size than standard GM

I've been working on my 82 Z28 for the last 2 years, I've come to a point that has got me wondering. My rear straps that hold my u-joints in place don't fit. I went up town to the Zone and what they gave me is for a GM car however the strap bolt hole alignment is short. I even had a set of straps from my 73 Z28 and they were short. Is it possible that the previous owner had replaced the pig with a different make such as Ford or Chrysler? I guess I can remedy the situation as I have to replace the pinion bearing and I could while I'm at it put another pig on it. Just wondering if you guys have heard of anyone changing the pig to another make..........

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. The standard strap for the GM 7.5 rear end is smaller than the pig that is currently on it now. It's definately a GM 7.5, but I'm thinking someone replaced the original pig with another make because the standard GM strap is about 1/4 inch too short. Pretty strange if you ask me......
