I used the rear from an 8” from 74 Maverick and it bolted in. The spring pads were in the right place already. Used 15 x 7 Wheel Vintique wheels. I also cannot remember the backspacing.

Re: Exhaust headers

I also have them on my 1953 Courier with 302/AOD and Borgeson steering box. I did have to dimple a slight amount to clear the steering box. Otherwise no clearance issues.
