Narrowing a C4 rearend

Do you know if it can be chopped by 8 1/2"?

I am building a little car, and I love the way my '81 handles, and the C4 is that much better and adjustable. I will be building my own batwing, and fabbing all control arms and dog bones, but the real question is, can it be done and function properly (even with a bunch of tinkering)?

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Randy

Thanks for the reply

Now I am sitting here scratching my head like a monkey. Chopping is not the issue, it is how does it work when chopped that is the question. Neet project, and I don't think mine will be that far off from it, so we will see. I will keep looking. I will also see if I can get ahold of that guy and see what he says about that rear end now that it is chopped and running.

Thanks again,

Randy
