Re: Need help just broke another 7.5 Its time to change.
I would just change to corvette offset wheels if it were me. 59.5" is perfect to run those. I am scratching my head over my 8.8 right now. I bought it tore down thinking it was a 60" unit from a mustang (axles, diff, gears not installed in it) and it turns out its from a Lincoln MK VII and 62" wide. My main problem is I have camaro wheels and not vette wheels so the backspacing isn't as deep. My front has 2" spacers and will track 64.5" but if I run the 8.8 I will have a 68 rear track width...GRRR! This sucks considering I had the 8.8 built with all new bearings/seals/3.73 gears/carbon Cobra clutch packs and a billet cover.
