  • Hub/Hub Width, 59/60 Lark?

    Lark, 1959/60: Anybody have a front and rear hub-to-hub width measurement as well as the factory track width?

    Thanks!

    Tread, or track width is 57 3/8" in front and 56 9/16" rear.
    All Stude car rear axles from 1953-on are the same width. Hub outside-to-outside is 58 1/4" measured between straight edges held tight against the hub extension (where the axle nut contacts the hub).
    Spring pads eye-to-eye are 41 1/4". Wheel bearing flange-to-flange is 52 1/2". These are not manufacturing specs or precision measurements, so could be plus or minus 1/8".

      So rear ends are interchangeable between Larks and Hawks?

      If there's anything more important than my ego running around I want it caught and shot now.

        THANX!

        Those measurements were plenty accurate for me.
