Ok, ive had a TC rear end sitting in my garage for about a year now and im still debating wether or no to install it. I have already cut my fender lips, and can care less about loosing the quad shocks. What back spacing will i need to run this rear w/o any rubbing? I currently have 4 Lug "performance wheel outlet" 95 Cobra R's. They look like they are "set in" a bit more than the stockers, but then again it might just be me being optimistic. Is there any chance of these having the correct back spacing? I have a Tremec and a huge TT kit im installing soon, so i probably want to be able to fit some nitto 275-35-17 DR's. Any ideas anyone? if you dont know if my wheels fit, can you tell me what back spacing i need?

Depends on the width of the wheel.

8" should be fine, some serious rolling of the fenders.
9" you need the 36mm offset for the rear wheels.

Since you already have the wheels, it would be easier to use your stock 4 lug axles and get the North cobra brackets to use them with the TC rear brakes:

Yea, i have the 9" wheels. Like i said my fender lips are cut, so there is less then 1/4" of material left there, so that is probalby better than rolling them.

so your saying i will 36mm more offset than stock? do you know that would amount to in terms of back spacing?

sorry, I get wheel terms wrong.

6.42" BS and 36mm offset is what you need in the rear to work with the TC , 93 cobra and SN95 axles that are .75" longer than stock.

Again, your best deal is the $150 North Cobra brackets.
