Where do you need the measurements taken from? Axle hub to axle hub? End of the tubes? I've got a diff out in my garage I can measure.............I'll get some #'s for you later today.

Okay, I took measurements in a couple places cause I didn't know where you'd want them from.

From the outside face of the axle hub to the opposite axle hub, I got 5' 4-3/4".

From the outside face of the backing plate to the opposite backing plate, I got 5' 1".

From center to center of the spring perches, I got 3' 4".

If you need more specific info, let me know. Hope that helps.

im sorry man, i meant like the width from disc to disc. a guy with a 58 chevy said it couldnt be no longer than 58 inches in order to get onto his car and he didnt wanna have to narrow it.

This diff I have doesn't have brakes on it, so I can't give you disc to disc, but what I gave you should be close. But if you look at the measurements I got (5' 1" from backing plate to backing plate), that's 61", and I don't think the discs would be any further inward than the backing plates since the calipers bolt on to them, so I'd say that disc-to-disc probably wouldn't be less than 61", and definitely not less than 58"? If that's the case, then the rear end may not work for that guy?
