Hey Guys:
I have a 9" rear end that needs it's leaf spring perches welded on. The rear will need to fit straight up under a '69FB, so what I'm looking for is WHERE to have the perches welded back on the axle tubes....

Would some KIND person please crawl under their '69 or '70 (non-molested) rearend and measure the distance their spring perches are from the Pumpkin lip (where the axle tube enters the Pumpkin) to the perch vertical side. I'm thinking that would be the best & easiest way to locate them...since the backing plate isn't too flat. Note because the Pumpkin isn't centered in rearend, the measurements will likely be different from side to side, so please measure both sides and post them here.

The RH (Passenger's side) measurement is:
The LH (Driver's side) measurement is:

I'm thinking a -3 to -6 degree tip of the pinion with the perch level.... Any thoughts?

Thanks for any & all advise/help, Guys!

Ryan

I looked again at the rearend, and the lip isn't clearly defined.

Maybe the measurement should be taken from the back of the axle flange to the closest side of the spring perch......?

Looks like Alex got busy,,,,, can someone else help me out here, I'd appreciate it!!

Thanks in advance, ,,, Ryan
