Just bought a early 9" for the 67 so no more tire clearance issues. Housing, 31 spline axles, and a disc brake conversion setup for under 400 bucks I do need to get the caliper brackets though($100). What ya think? Too narrow for the 67?

Tom the 57-59 housing I got with the axles installed is 1/2" wider then my stock 8" housing. So put it together and see how wide it really is.
Your stock 68 rear should be about 59.25" wide the new one should be 57.25" to 57.75" or so wide. I would think that would workout great.

That measuement should be from axle flange to flange right? Guy says it is 52.5 without axles.

52.5" sounds right for just the housing. Yes you need to messure with from the axle in then flange to flange.

Thats a MUST! Very easy job and a great time to sand and repaint the housing too.

Tom, Do you know what disc brake conversion they did on your rearend? I picked up a '59 about a week ago, I would like to do disc. A junkyard conversion is what I'm looking for, meaning cheap. Thanks Darryl

It is a Lincoln mkVII rear disc conversion I got the brackets from ULtra Stang I believe the web address is www.ultrastang.com. He has a great how to on this site and the components he just sent me in his kit look nice this is a complete bolton setup. I ordered them sun and got it today. Check out his site and let me know what your questions are?
