    Correct sir!) And that's exactly what happened in my case too)
    I went with 5.5 for two reasons 1. Cause there was much bigger choice in that category and 2. Cause i had almost an inch (10mm) narrower tires. So i thought it would work and it did, but for one side)) and a little trimming for the other side)

    Yes mine is a 72 skylark custom and I'll probably have to dig in the papers that came with the car to find it. Is there a way to tell it by looking at it?

    The 72 Skylark custom 350-2bbl came with a 2.56 rear standard. There is a 2 letter code stamped into the axle tube. The 2.56 peg leg would be LK, the 2.56 Posi would be LT. If it was a 350-4bbl, it would have gotten the 2.73, LL, and LO respectively.

    He did say it was a 350 4bbl. That's why I left out the 2.56. :D
