Don

The tires are 11 1/2" measured on the tread surface...the section width is a little wider. They're about a 1/4" too wide to the inside. I have since gone to a smaller tire. A little heat and a sledge hammer and they would have fit...no problem. I had a 9" rear out of a mid 70's granada...yes they had them, but rare. I buit a jig around my mustang 8.8 housing, fabbed my own control arm brackets, and there you have it. If I remember correctly, this 9" rear is almost 3" narrower that the 8.8. Playing around with rim offset and a little clearancing, 11" wide tires are no problem with this setup. I did roll my qtr lips too.

Here's my jig that I fabbed up



Here's the rear installed



I actually built and rebuilt this jig several times until I was saticefied. It did pay off, everything lined up perfectly with no binding.

This happens to be the only picture that I took of this swap. I did it while test fitting the rear. Next time I'll make sure the tires are off, the car is up higher, and there is better lighting.
