I have own a BCW Model 52 MG TD Schweppes Special Edition w/85 Chevy Chevette running gear. I would like to make the vehicle more highway friendly and rid the vehicle of the torque tube and have a drive shaft w/a little length. I have been exploring the idea of a Chevy S-10 rear end with the leaf springs. Consensus is?
Not familiar with the Chevette rear suspension. If it uses leaf springs, then you should be able to swap anything that will physically fit. If the spring perches and overall width is compatible, go for it. Try to stay with comparable bolt pattern with the wheels. Get a rear with disc brakes if you can.
