    i was wondering would a 75 granada rear end fit a 73 comet i know people say they'll fit but has anyone actually used one and would i need a 73 granada rear to fit a 73 or does the year matter.:tiphat:

    Granada rears are just under 2" wider overall than a stock Maverick rear.
    This goes for all years of Maverick, and Granada/Monarchs of any year that are NOT of the Fox body style. (approx 75-80)

    All of the mounting points are same-same. Bolt in.

    I wouldn't use the 8.7" rear though. Keep it 8" or 9".

    yeah but if this granada is in a local yard, swipe the front disc brake spindles. if you already have disc brakes on your car, SOMEBODY on this site will be your best bud for life if you sell the set up to him. don't forget to snag the proportioning valve.

    I'm doing a front disk break swap with a 77 Granada now. I don't recommend the rear end because there are of plenty other options for that, but go for the disks in the front if at all possible.
