Putting a 9" in the 70 maverick. It's a street car, so what's good for street yet good on the freeway? Any suggestions?

alot depends on how tall of a tire you will be running but I think the 3.73 is a good choice!!

15x10 in the rear. The tire will probably be around 28 inches. It's an automatic. Im thinking maybe 3.70? This is my first car so Im not sure how its going to go yet.

heres what Im ordering:
347 stroker shortblock w/ forged everything, Trickflow Twisted Wedge Stage 3 heads, roller rockers/cam/lifters, Crosswind show polish intake, Holley 650 DP (jet modified), and MSD pro billet distrib with super HEI kit. Im also taking the AOD tranny into a local shop to get it rebuilt with B&M shift kit, flexplate, and a holeshot 2400 converter. Eventually I will get the front disc conversion

With an OD tranny I would go with a 4.11 gear.

With a 28" tire, 4.11s would be a good choice. That should let you trap up to about 110 MPH without shifting to OD
