Will a 73 GS rear end fit under a 70 skylark?
I think it will require modifications to at least the shock mounts and or spring perches
It's wider too
Pretty much everything is wrong.
Now I believe the inside guts.....aka carrier and gears will swap over to a 71/72 if it's an 8.5
So first I need a 71-72 rear end.
Headache...Do not try... Jim
Stay with the 8.5 or 12 bolt chevy
I think I know where 2 71-72 8.5 rears are and since everything seems to be hard to find for the 70 I will probably go that route.
Good choice, they are solid unit
If using the 8.5 see if you can save the axle bearings...If they are original... save yourself some leak headaches.
A9 Set9 system has been a real headache for the past 10 years....
