    i have an 89 10 bolt with 411's and would like to go wider about 3" to even out with front, but maintain my 15" 6 bolt rims (just bought new wheels and tires) is this possible and what vehicles would i look for
    also would i be able to use the rear from a newer 99+ and get the disk brakes??? will i have to change the drive shaft? i just had mine balanced and new joints installed
    thanks

    Look for a van rearend. They say those rears are around 3" wider than a stock rear.

    Get a half ton van rearend. You will have to get the axleshafts redrilled or custom shafts made though. You could also get a wheel spacer. 1.5" for each side would even you out.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.
