    Anyone know right off the top of their head what the WMS to WMS measurements are on 10 and 12 bolt rears? I know they are stronger, and can be made to run 44's, and I know about lift requrements for those 44's (as well as gearing)...just need the WMS to WMS please. TIA. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Dumb question but what does WMS stand for? Is it Wheel Mounting Surface? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I'm thinking it may be narrower than that. The SF 14 is 66, and reportedly the 10b and d44 6 lug fronts are 67. Could the rear 10 and 12 be as narrow as ~65"?

    You should just cruise out to the ol Stock Poser K5 and take some measurements for me. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    That's where the 57" came into existence. I've got a 10 bolt on jackstands right outside the front door. Unfortunately, the axles are inside the garage, so no WMS for you./forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I should of charged ya an excise fee for finding my flip flops, the tape measure and wasting the 30 seconds it took me; and then of course another tax since this is California; and the other 30 seconds for replying and using the bandwith just for a fan of a third rate collegiate football team. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I saw the other measurements, I must have missed this one in your last post on the subject. It's not on the measurement post on PBB either. Thanks!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    <font color="green"> Actually I did a search for that and added it in there this time around. I typed the first line of my reply before realizing that it wasn't in there, so I went and looked for it then forgot to change the post. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif </font>

    we have to assume that measurement is for 70-up for the 12 bolts*


    69 older are exactly 1.5" narrower


    good luck
