    Can the 91-96 Impala SS bolt pattern be changed to 5x4.75 from the 5"? Reason I'm asking is my 78 Buick LeSabre Coupe has 4.75 but a weak axle. The SS is way cheaper than a Moser 9 replacement.

    I don't want that bolt pattern limited wheel selection. Plus I'm going to run C5 Z06 Vette brakes. I want to be able to go to the parts store and buy brake parts over the counter.

    I added wheel section gets narrow , rims will fit but too much offset ect...
    Looks like Moser axles in your future I engibe it'll run about 300$ the pair

    New axles would probably be good investment for the future . I installed a 95' 3.08 10 bolt , I haven't changed axles yet though so I use the

    spacer adapters till I do since they pretty cheap ($50 pair).
