    Hey guys I may be swapping out my rear end for an 01 rear end with 355s. I know there's some differences but wanted expert advice. Isn't the new edge rear end a bit longer than the sn? And by how much exactly

    If I remember correctly it is a total of 3 inches longer, 1.5" on each side

    Sooooo...I guess my rims will sit out a tad too far since I have inch spacers on them already?

    Not that much wider, 1.3" wider total, so under 3/4" each side, I believe it's 3" wider then a fox rear ( 86-93)

    Should be a direct swap otherwise.

    Honestly I don't know if I'd love you as much if you were right all the time

    I believe the axle bolt holes for the lower control arms are a different size as well (14mm instead of 12mm)
