Depends on the power level of your car but if you just want to go 5-lug then any rear from a 64-67 will just bolt in. They are the 8.2 10 bolt that can maybe handle 400 hp stock. With a stock width rear a 15x7 will work with a 4.5 or 4.75 backspace and a 235 60 15 tire fits good.

eventually a stout 350 with a turbo 350 trans.it has a camaro rearend right now out of an 80 model im told and its tight ...very tight ...and for some reason,maybe the multi leaf springs but my shocks are almost full extended....why is this?
