[quote="Franz"]

So my question/plan for you lays out like this?:

Front
- 2.5" narrowed caster beam
- Flipped spindles
- Oldspeed wilwood disc brakes
- 5.5" early fuchs detailed or not to be decided later.
- 175/55/15 tire

Rear
-3.88 x .89 4th gear box from RC trans in Las Vegas. Regular rebuild. NO BURN-OUTS,
-Empi or Oldspeed disc kit to be decided later- same off-set.
- 5.5" fuchs
-205/65/15 tire[/quote/]



Franz for the front you say early fuchs. What is considered early and is there a difference in offset? Also when I order brakes what axles do I have? Thanks

Yeah, the early ones are different offset. You can tell the difference if you look at where the spoke meets the rim. Early spokes wrap around and down into the rim. Late ones are flat.

You have 67 axles.
