Question Rear end help...

I need some help my father is looking for a 8.5 rear end for his 67 chevelle ... he said his measured 60 inches from hub to hub wheel mounting surface that is .... did some of the s10 blazers have a 8.5 about that width? If so what years do I need to strip it from? Thanks in advance...

It's been a long time coming... It's time to get it done..

Re: Rear end help...

The standard 4x4 S10 rear is 59". Most are 7.5 rear gear. Look for a '96-up loaded 4x4 (NOT ZR2 offroad package...they're 63"). Then look for the axle tubes to flare up a bit bigger right before they enter the pumpkin. That's the 8.5 rear. The common 7.5 rear has axle tubes the same size all the way into the pumpkin.

Is he going with ladder bars or a 4 link? Chevelles use trailing arms, the mounts are molded into the center, those aren't on the S-10 axles.
