    3rd gen Camaro/firebird(82-92) are just less than 62''. However, if you are planning to apply mediocre amounts of torque, you will eventually scatter it all over the road. For a cruiser though it works great. Bypass the GTA 9 bolt disc brake rears though. While they are stronger, they are rare and usually expensive, have few ratio choices, and are finiky on the adjustment of the emerg brake. 3.23 and 3.42 gears are common in 87 ish 6 cyl cars. 82- 84 v8 cars usually have 2.73 /3.08 ratios.
  6. full size dodge trucks like 1994 to 1999 61 inch plus it a 5 1/2 bolt on the wheel
