Recently grabbed an 8.5 rear from a '94 Caprice, Going to clean it up and rebuild it before throwing it in with the UMI uppers and lower arms, Viking Coil overs that are all ready on the car and Hotchkiss sway bars. What's throwing me off is the lug pattern, everything that I'm reading says the rear is a 5x5 lug pattern, obviously the 79 Impala is a 5x4.75. Question, would I just use the front rotors, brackets, and calipers from a 94 impala as well to keep the same lug pattern on all four corners? Or is there some which craft involved?
Plans are to run Torque Thrust II's 17x9.5 up front and 17x11s out back with a mini tub for clearance. "Low Life Status"
