CruizinKev's 1979 Monte Carlo

the wheels only come with 2 choices of offsets and none of them are "correct" for our gbody cars.... that's why I have to use spacers..

the project was on hold for a little while because I've been busy with wedding organisation and stuff. my fiance and me are getting married next week (May 25th) so that's why no updates on the monte for a while. just tried to make the Monte ready for the wedding but oh well.. lot of other stuff came in and plus a long dang cold winter.
but as we speak there are some more new parts on the way to continue work on the car. already got new rear wheels tubs laying and a cammed LS3 6.2 out of a 2011 camaro :D
 
finally picked up my LS3 6.2 480HP this week yeehaaw! :D

The Quick performance 9" rearend is a great product. I installed one in my '71 Skylark, which has over 515ft lbs. of torque. It's been to the track a few times w/ slicks and handled the punishment. Good luck.
 
thanks guys! long time no see.. lot of things happened.. I'm married now :D ....ok now, finally an update :)

they're working hard on buddy's garage. adding some insulation here.

Are you going to order the rear the "correct" width needed in order not use the spacers?
no I just got the rear end with stock g-body width - I think I'll notch the frame a little bit and mini tub the rear fenders to run the wheels without the spacers..
