    Dave,
    I need to change spacers under my Jag front springs. Do you know if the 3 bolts that attach the lower spring cup to the lower A arm are 3/8 x24 (fine)?

    Roy,
    I think the S10 rear would be too narrow, but it depends.
    What you want to use will depend on wheel size and rear suspension setup. I am running leaf springs on the outside of the frame like the original F1 design, so I am using a 1970-1981 camaro / firebird rear which is pretty much the same width as the original. Another rear which is the same width would be a 1968-72 chevelle rear. Original brackets have to be removed and new suspension brackets welded on for either one.
    If you are running a 4 link or super wide tires then you may want to mock up the tires and see what you need as far as width, wheel mounting surface to wheel mounting surface.
