I have to put a drum 9" rear under my car to replace the floater rearend. Where should I measure on the floater to get the same track width in the drum rear?

it's still the same measurement on any rearend. wheel flange to wheel flange.

Would you be interested in selling the floater? If so, how much? I am in Mid Missouri as well.
Thanks

I am going to keep the floater for awhile..who knows, the tracks may come change their rules midseason.

I did not buy mine new but, looking at JR Motorsports Catalog they sell Winters and PRC components...Hub kits (hub and disk) are $300 per side...You can probably get metric brackets and spring seats for around $75-$100...they have a brake caliper kit for $150...look on eBay and the other sites...I've seen some components on those places.
