Re: 8.8 Mustang Disc Brake Rearend

The Explorer rear axle is 59.5", which was too narrow for me. So I used 1" thick wheel spacer/adapters to take care of the bolt pattern issue.

I know some people don't trust wheel spacers, but I got some hub centric spacers that fit perfectly over the Explorer flanges and and are also an exact fit for the center bore of my wheels. My wheels are 20x8.5 and I believe the backspace is 4.75, the tire sits perfect between the bedside and fender edge.

Basically you could use the adapters to dial in your width if the axle is too narrow.
