mini spool on the street
I welded the spider gears in my Torino when I was an 18 year old know it all. (I'm a 31 year old know it all now!)
I broke a leaf spring, twisted two axles, damn near killed myself when I had a flat on the rear and installed a spare that was a little taller than the other tires. Talk about squirelly! Try a 3" stagger with a spool on the street. Then add in some rain, to boot.
I was such a dumb-ass.
I know it hurts, but find a trac-lok at a salvage, you can sometimes make tremendous finds for cheap if the yard operator doesn't know what you have found.
My advice? Don't even think about it.
