What width overall (rotor/hub to rotor/hub) do any of you run in a second generation(70-81)Camaro? I am measuring up to order a complete assembly. Any opinions on manufacturer?

i run a 60" ford 9 inch. look around at your local swap meets or junkyard for your larger fords, mercurys or lincolns and then put in your gear and weld the spiders

I already have a 9" in my first car. I am looking for "FLOATER" information. Afco,Coleman,Speedway? I understand Moser may start building "floaters". My current car has the heavy duty Moser axles with taper roller bearings. Anyone else any inforation or specifications? Thanks

Schreiner isnt that great of a deal, 5/8 studs cost extra and they use thier own hubs and driveplates, so if you need one at the track prolly not going to happen. Coleman sells theirs complete for under $900, thats for their new LW hubs and rotors, and alot of places have Winters and Afco hub ones for $1000. Been shopping for one myself and Ive called about everyone.

Shipping costs is a consideration ....for your original purchase, new housing later (or if you send in your housing to be repaired and/or straightened) and other replacement parts .

I prefer Speedway Engineerings products .... I believe Speedway motors sells a nice rear by Mitler Bros. .... Stockcar products has been building good units forever ... D&M Seems to know what they are doing and last I looked (2 or 3 years ago) the pricing was good ... I think Day motorsports resells somebodies rear at a good price.

If you don't feel stongly about a particular Manufacturer, I would pick someone close by.


.....60" is a great size for a Camaro.

a stock camaro is 61.5 wide.

Schreiner rear hubs are not his own, they are in many diff parts books. I dont have my book, but they are in lefthander.

the rotors they come with are only 10.5 inches thats good for less unnecessary inertia.

i had to put sleeves on both sides of my schreiner, or it leaked axle fluid.

the rearend cost me 910.00 delivered. and it was custom made, 62.5 with a 2 inch extra pinion offset to the left, for a camaro with a ford rf lower and motor offset 1" left...

I talked to Ron Schreiner himself on the phone less than ONE WEEK ago and HE TOLD me that the hubs and driveplates were their own self made pieces! Maybe he told you some thing else, I dont know, maybe something else just happens to work on his housings, I dont know. You lose on this one.
