Re: Grand national rear in a 1979 malibu

its a direct swap, except the driveshaft has to be 1" shorter. if you can get the driveshaft from the donor car, that should be 1" shorter. that's what I did for the 8.5" that was in my 2 door before the dana 60, and also what I did for my station wagon.

Re: Converting the Slow-wagon to t-56

I'm going to convert the trans to a mechanical speedo, don't want to run extra wires, and converting isn't much more than the cost of the box.

Anyone relocate the shifter on a stock t-56?

This has taken a back seat until I finish putting the 2 door back together
