narrowing a 12 bolt
I found a 65 chevelle 12 bolt with 308 gears, swapped out my 8.2.
Im going to do disk brakes and the ford ends on it when I install new gears and posi unit. My question is how far can I narrow it by means of the ford ends? I know I will need custom axles (or just cut then down??) I will be installing aftermarket axles anyways.
My goal is to get as big of tire in my fender as I can without tubbing it. I have already rolled the fender lip, Im looking at how I can clearance the inner fender too. I want the nice backspacing that a musclecar should have in the rear,
There is a lot of room in the inside of the tire to frame side, one of my concerns is the shock mount to wheel clearance. Id like to run a set of 255-275's with a 17" wheel.
I have searched but cant find the info i want from people who have already done this.
