I am new to this forum and didn't find anything like this but i have an 86 El Camino that has a 7.5 rear end on its last leg and i came across a replacement and am not sure if it will work or not. The dimensions are 55 1/2 from drum to drum. I am aware that it is slightly wider than the stock elco rear end. I don't mind the wheels poking out a little bit. It is coming out of a stock car with a G-body chassis. The spring pads seem to be in the correct location on the axle tubes. The only part that i'm not sure about is the shock location. The shocks are actually in front of the axle tubes, but on my current rear end they are behind the axle tubes. I cannot tell if they can be switched to the other side or not. Any info would be helpful. Thanks! Picture in link below.
