I am wondering ,can this be done to ANY 9" rear , (I heard 28 spliners cannot be shortened)I put one on my 68 cougar & it was from some unknown car(guy I bought it from thought it was from a 68 cougar, obviously he was wrong), had to narrow the pirches & the whole thing is about 3" wider & it looks a little funny.

Welcome to M&M !
You can narrow ANY 9 inch FoMoCo housing.
The axle spline has nothing to do with the housing width.

But, you may need new axles.

Are only the 28 spline axles tapered?
