Upgrade rear ends with 4 1/2" bolt circles are hard to find and impossible to find cheap. ...any rear end I might find would have to come from some other state, incurring horrible shipping fees for a rear end I would have to buy on blind faith. So scratch that.


Have you considered the relatively cheap and easy Ford Explorer rear axle swap? That gives you a 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

10" drums are not a waste of time. If you have them and can bolt them on I don't understand why you would not. Having had several 9" drum cars I was pleasantly surprised when I found my '66 Barracuda had 10" drums.

I have one data point on how scarce A body stuff is in Mississippi. In 1994 I couldn't find a door for a Duster anywhere near Biloxi.

Thanks. I ordered the tool. With it I can at least get the drum problem resolved.
