Im not worried bout that,after a few im bulletproff.
Why not beef up a big 10 bolt ? It already fits and costs less will handle 400 hp
gotcha ya ok procede lol
Since your moving your springs inboard and don't have your leaf spring center to center measurement just get the rearend without the saddles welded in place. Can still put in car with unwelded perches and tighten u bolts to move around until you get your ride height. Think most motor trans were down 3-5 deg. Sorry, no good at math. But I can count to 6,12 and 24.
I can't see what model and year your car is but I will tell you the standard rear in an Acadian/Nova is 52.5" flange to flange. The 10 bolts used in 64-67 were small ring gear but 28 spline and could handle 400hp when built with good parts. There are a limited number of 12 bolts around that were in the SS and SD cars also. I have been looking for a wider rear in order to use it in my gasser so I'm not interested in a rear that narrow but in looking I have come across several narrowed (primarily 9") rears available for less than $1500 on eBay.
My good friend here in Michigan builds race car frames, cages and custom builds complete 12 bolts to your specs with all new parts for $2500 US.
