On my 50 chevy pickup I had as a kid with bbc and 4 speed We used a 12 bolt rearend out of a 70 chevelle that had trailing arms origionally.
I used the existing mounting mounts on top of 3rd member to run homemade control arms to a cross member I added to frame,then I mounted the axle on top of the stock reworked truck springs.
That truck would pull the front tires off the ground 2" and just launch like a damn motorcycle,no tire spin problems.
Cty sheriff lived down the hill from me,we talked regularly!
