Okay, I'm the newbie here, but I have to ask. I'm working on a pro touring '71 AMC Javelin (Think Mark Donohue in 1971 and you get the idea).

Anyhow, I came across an '88 Lincoln Mark VII LSC, it has the 8.8 rear, 3.27 gears, and traction lok. My question...how wide is this rear end from wheel mounting surface to wheel mouting surface. My Javelins rear end is approximately 60" hub to hub, but I can't find the definitive answer on the width of the LSC rear end. I would like to use this LSC rear end, but I won't buy until I know how wide it is. The bad part is the axle is still in the car, with wheels attached, and in a soft corner of a wrecking yard.

So, does anyone have this measurement?
