I am having trouble with a Caprice rearend. the rear is an 8 1/2 but the brakes are the small ones 9" and the only axles i can find are either 7 1/2 caprice or 8 1/2 caprice with the big brakes and the hub is too big for the drum and wheel. What did these come on?

Please double check your bolt pattern on the axles you are currently running and insure that they have not been redrilled or anything. Also which outer wheel bearing do you currently run?

Well it turns out it is a fat frame Chevelle rearend 73-77. I was asking for a friend and as soon as I saw the axle I realized it. But I have worked on the car before so I should have known. I aSSumed :-(
