It's an irrelevant measurement. The axle is further back than stock. I put adjustable arms on it and adjust it until it fits.

No worries. I thought it would have been a good starting point when it goes in.

I'm sourcing the adjustable upper control arms...Can I use any adjustable UCA (A-Body, G-Body, Fox Body, Fourth Generation Mustang, newer Mustang), or does it have to be for a Fox Body Mustang (1979-1993)?
So... does anyone have some info? Thanks.

+1 pontiacgp. Used their kit to put an 8.8 in my 85MCSS. Pretty easy install, worked well, and for the price can't beat them.

I can't remember, but it wasn't too bad. Got them about a year ago. I got the uppers etc. plus 2 weld on spring perches. Easier than cutiing the rusty ones off the 7.5"
