Re: 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 - Rear End Issue

If this is a 8.5 rear end then it's from a '71 or '72 Buick Skylark or Olds Cutlass. There shouldn't be any spacers. If the correct bearings and seals were used then there shouldn't be any end play like this. The ring that goes on after the bearing is just a retainer ring and has nothing to do with axle end play.

There are no pictures showing the center of the housing, so no way of knowing if this is the '71-'72 Buick Olds 8.5 rear end or if it's the BOP 8.2 rear end. If it's the BOP 8.2 then there were different axle bearings used in it, depending on what car it came from. Some of those bearings are no longer available.
