6.5 vs 7.5 axles

Postby 71GTKammback » Sun Oct 18, 2015 6:35 pm

Anyone happen to know if the axles on the 6.5 rear are the same as the 7.5"?

I hear about people changing out the 7.5 with S10 axles but never the 6.5. Dont want to V8 the car but need 14" rims to get decent tires.

7.5" axles do NOT fit in a 6.5" housing.
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.35@146.19)(5.94@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (retired)
06 Haulin' 20ft enclosed car transporter
93 Suburban- 350/4L60(retired)
00 Saturn SW2- wife's car
01 Saturn SC2- younger son's project
00 Saturn SL2- daughter's car
98 Saturn SW2- spare
and 3 more Saturn "parts cars"
Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....
