Im looking too buy a Ford 9 inch Rearend for my imca hobby stock in my metric car, 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.

Hmm, 79 lincoln with factory disc brakes. the 3 I have had are 63.5 wide, I would measure again..

also the ford calipers are junk for racing they only adjust if you set the emergency brake...
