What gears usally came in 88 monte rears? also if i buy basset rims what would be the stock off set of a 15x8 or 15x7 rim. whats everyone doing for spring rates 5/8 medium banked track? one more question my motor/trans is out of my old 77 monte. Will the driveshaft from the 88' work with the 77 trans? or will i need to change the yolk? thanks for any help

couple of answers, the driveshaft should be the same no problem, the gears if it';s a ss model either 3.73 or 3.42 if not then most likely 2.56 or higher not sure on the wheels but most stock type classes that i have seen will let you use a 3 or 4 inch offset with an 8 inch wheel. stock i'm guessing would be 4 inch
