    1969 coupe deville Rear End Swap?? bc one legged burnouts = :(

    hello everyone, i have a 1969 cadillac coupe deville (472 th400) and the rear end knocks occasionally. i found a 8.8 ford mustang rear end, would this work? am not worried about the suspension springs not lining up, i just need a replacement rear with posi. i searched google and found some people have used a 9" ford reared but have not mentioned which ford it was removed from. what do you guys recommend? btw i also have a 1968 fleetwood brougham
    sedan, is it wise to swap the carriers with the 69 deville?

    Knocking? Could be your paxal joint going away. I am sure you could change out the '68 for the '69 with no problems.

    The Mustang 8.8 will not be wide enough, and probably not strong enough.
