    Anyone know how wide the rear axle, from drum to drum (outside), is for a '72 blazer? I may be able to get a Dana 60

    57" from back plate to back plate on 7-72 trucks w ith 12 bolt axle. must add the width of drums to that measurement though.
    I'd say about 2 1/4" to 2 1/2" since the shoes are 2" on these.

    '72 K-5 4x4, CST, 3.07, 4 speed, NP 205, 31' x 10.5", Olive green and primer, rusted out, rice smasher!
