Cobra is IRS, not a live axle.

Sorry , it's from a mach 1 picture is regular axle, I just got the dimensions 57 to backing plate and 62 to mounting surface. so from what I researched it's almost 5 inches bigger than mine. Is that to much to make up with backspacing?

Thanks JD

You wont be able to get the tires in the tire well with just backspacing.

You could narrow the axle......

The Desoto in the picture below has a 31 spline 8.8 that has been narrowed. It was previously located in my 65 Valaint where it was a perfect fit.

You swap the long side axle for a short side axle and narrow the housing.

Is there a short side axle in a mustang?

Sandy's was an Exploder axle. The Mustang one will also need spring perches welded on.

I think I can get the rear cheap but here in CT getting a rear shortened is expensive! When I hear prices that are quoted on the forum for work like this It usually costs twice or triple here unfortunately.....

I'm with you Johnny. There is no such thing as a cheap machine shop where I live, despite there being a strong trucking industry and port in my town.
