I may be duplicating a post, sorry if that's the case, but I've just reinstalled the rear-end in a 72 C10 and I need to center it. Is there a particular measuring point for centering?

I'm sure that there is a point from witch you can measure it but I have no knowledge of it. I can't find any reference of it in any of my books. The trailing arms won't let you get to far off. If you can measure diagonally from front wheel to rear wheel both side you will be centered. anim_25

I would cross measure at trailing arm pivot points at normal riding height.That is with everything assembled.If its off center I would think it dog track

Thanks guys

I'm sure it would dog track if it's off. Right now it's completely unloaded, so you're probably right that it will change. I think I've got it very close and I'll wait and check it with weight on it. Thanks again, I'm sure I'll be back!

I`ve done that a thousand times off of the frame, ended up centering it to the fenders when done. only a .5 inch difference..
