    I have used a rear from a 1977 Caprice sedan on my preivious 41Buick and I know for sure that a 1986 rear is the same width as I have one on my 47 Olds. It must be from a sedan cause the wagon rear is 2" longer. I guess you can use rears from 70-90 Caprice.

    For future threads, I was just able
    to measure the 41's rear and it's
    62" axle to axle.
