View Full Version : Ideal Rear axle housing width

09-10-2007, 08:20 PM
This is for the Spirit 27 Roadster specifically. I know the kits use the 8.8 Ford and 10 bolt Chevy housings. What is the desired rearend width (backing plate or housing end to housing end.)

I do not want the axle flange to axle flange width...I need housing end to housing end.

If any one has a ballpark, please let me know. What are the Spirit Kits (27 Roadster) set up with.

I have several from other projects. 8.8, 9 inch, 8 3/4 Mopar, etc, in different widths.

Thank you.

52'' - 54'' The Spirit 27 if it is a 10 bolt has a rear end from an s S10 4x4 blazer. It needs to be a 4x4 or it will be to narrow
