Hello Trifive2009,

I wish I could give you a correct answer, but unfortunately I can't.

I ended up going with a 9" complete with disc brakes. It looks like I shouldn't have any problems with the spare tire carrier. I'm hoping for the same with the fuel tank.

I currently have the car in the body shop getting ready for paint. Unfortunately, the car wasn't in nearly the condition I thought it was. It's still good, but I am replacing a lot of metal in the pan area. I'm replacing both the inner and outer rocker panels as well as some quarter panel work. Doors were awesome & the two front fenders were beautiful. The hood is in great condition too.

The car comes back off the frame tomorrow and will be placed on a rotiserie. We will completely sand blast both inside and out. And again, I'm going to replace everything that's needed.

I will be doing this right!

Hope your project is going well. I have thought about the 2" lower rear springs as well. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Good luck with your project!
