Why are chevy rear axels shorter than the front? I s there some thing special for this?
You can get a rear wheel spacer that fits between the rim and the brake drum. It makes them look even when installed...

Yeah, from what I understand it's GM's idea of making a tighter turning radius. Hince tucking the rear wheels inward.

It would also tend to keep the rear (driving except locked in 4wd) wheels out of the ruts that the front wheels make. (a little) Probably not the reason, but in snow that can be a benefit.
