changing rear skid

ok so i was wondering if anyone has used the 133 skid from a sks the rails at least and then used the shocks and mounts and springs from a xtra 10 on them so u basicly change your 8 inch to a 10 inch and i was hopping to verify if i do have the 8 inch and not the xtra 10 thanks

The rails and it's shaft locations are completely different. I am in the process of putting a 1997 XLT Xtra 10 into a 91 Indy 500. Tore the whole rear suspension apart tonight to clean and check all shafts and bearings and even if you could get the holes located and drilled it would be a pain.

I didn't understand your last posting. Post some pictures of the skids that you're working with. I just don't think that you'll have anything but problems if you sart mixing components from an Xtra 10 and the older 8" suspension. If you have an entire Xtra 10, even if it's a 121, I'd put rail extensions on it, relocate your mounting plates and put it under your older machine.

Totally different suspensions. If you start trying to make things fit, you're going to have problems. Find a used long track system and put it in.
