The above 8" rears are closest in dimension to the Forward Look 8" rears. I've had a '70 Plymouth Sport Fury 3:55 Sure-Grip '489'-case 8" rear axle (drum-to-drum) in my '60 Plymouth station wagon for years now,and the '65-up straight axle shaft 8" rears are a great way to go. It is also possible to transplant 1965-68 '742'-case axle shafts into original 1957-64 8" rears,provided you change the axle to later drums or drill five wheel stud holes in the original drums as I did on my 1961 Fury.
