That will make the track width of your suspension really wide or you will have short wheel travel before you take the CV's our of their operating range.
AND I could be completely wrong!
Ok, thanks for the response.
I may just buy one and see if I can do a mock up. They are super cheap. I wonder if I could get some wheels with a large offset to reduce the rear end width. I believe the 4T60 is not as wide but would need to be built as well. I'm not sure if the 5.3 will bolt to that transaxle though.
