i have an 8.2 10 bolt chevy rearend it is in a 72 chevelle i had the carrier pretty much explode and from what i understand this is pretty common in racing the 8.2 what my question is which rear will bolt in without modification to the trailing arms or mounts i have measured a few 8.5 from different cars and the arm mounts on top of the rear seem to be a little bit farther apart than the 8.2. i dont mind moving the lower arm mounts but really dont want to move the tops or is there a ford 9 that the top arm mounts will bolt up thanks in advance
