Does anybody know overall width and spring perch dimensions for a 1957/1958 Plymouth? I've read an E body rear bolts in but no idea how accurate that info is!!! Thanks

Overall width drum-to-drum is 60 7/8" and the perches are 45 1/2".

An E-body rear will bolt in, even with the 1/2" difference in perches, but the pinion angle (6°) is wrong; the '65-'69 C-body is a better choice, same overall dimensions with the correct 3° pinion angle.

I just put the C-body rear in my '57 Dodge and it fits perfectly.

I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Moved the perches one inch? I have a 66/67 B body rear, looks to be exactly what I need for tire fit, and I have Wilwoods for the back already. Not going the tapered axle/ old style drums, that's for sure!!

What wheel/tire combo are you running?? Did you go with an A body rear spring or?
