12 bolt rearend questions

Discussion in 'OT Driven' started by NitrousInjected, Apr 29, 2003.

  1. I have a 1979 Chevrolet malibu, wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction as to what to look for to pull a rear-end from. I'm looking to swap to the 12 bolt since the stock 10 bolt is trash, so my question is; What cars was the 12 bolt factory in, and what modifications if any would be required to make the 12 bolt fit under my malibu.

    Thanks in advance.

    you may want to check out a police spec impala. As wide as that thing is, and being leaf springs, you might want to measure and see if a truck rear would actually fit. Sorry thats all i can think of.
