I'm wanting to change the rear end in my 57 chevy wagon to an s10 4x4 rear. All help in doing is appreciated. I bought 2w/d s10 rear end to find that it would to narrower. So I need info on the 4x4 rear.

4X4 rear end is 4 inches wider. The first gen Camaro rear end is 60 inches, and the FOX body Mustang 8.8 is 59 1/2 inches. Most of the S10 rear ends are the weak 7.5 10 bolt. A '72 or later Nova or other X body 8.5 is also 60 inches and would be a much better choice.

If you're gonna use a S10 4x4 be aware that a S10 ZR2 rear is even wider at 62 inches.
