my rearend
« on: March 08, 2014, 11:05:01 PM »
I have a 71 trunk model and would like to upgrade the rearend to 5 lug.  Stock motor for now, so don't need anything too crazy, just wondering what is the best change for me?  What other if any rears would be a bolt in?  Thanks!

The easiest and most popular is the 8" from a Mustang, I myself with a little work like grinding off shock and mounting tabs and adding spring perches is the 7.5" out of a 90's Ranger.

I just couldn't pass this up. 8" is the easy way, and yes, I've had my rear end go KABOOM several times in the past.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
