I don't recall the backspacing on my wheels, but I have them painted and have the tires mounted. I then did some measuring and determined that a 60 1/2 inch wide rear axle will fit with about 1 1/2 inch fender clearance on both sides. I'll go with a nine inch Ford rear end, but still need to purchase that. I already have the Heidt's four link for the rear, but still need to purchase the coilovers as well. In the front, I have the Heidt's Superide with the dropped spindles. I had essentially the same front and rear suspension on my daily driver '51 Chevy truck and it handled great.
