I continue on with the 7.5 to 8.8 axle swap in the $4k budget build foxbody, #projectLOWFAREmont the Ford Fairmont Futura.

Knowing that the Lincoln Mark VII rear ends are wider than most foxbody axles, I knew the potential was there that the 06-11 17" Dodge Charger 10-hole steelies I bought would not fit. After getting the 8.8 axle in place, I was able to get a good idea of whether or not they would work. That's when the episode turned into a lesson on wheel offset.

If you searched for how to measure wheel offset, skip to the 8:22 mark.
