Im looking too buy a Ford 9 inch Rearend for my imca hobby stock, wondering what width to get, I think they come stock from 57 1/2 to 60", which do I want or is better and why, also for drum brakes I think theres 10" and 11" drums, or something like that, I know that some are bigger than others, which is better, I have a set of both, wonder what ones to use.

My opinion would be to use one as close to stock width as you can find, thats what we did, that way for one you have more variety of offsets you can use,verses if you start with one that is wide already your limited on wheels. Then on brake size I went with the smaller drum, less weight and the enertia comes into effect. jmo.....Jim
