oooops!   just verified online from multiple sources...
   on 78-87 G body cars (and elco) if you switch from 7.5 to an 8.5 rearend,  you have to either get the driveshaft from the donor car, or shorten yours by 1 inch. have seen comparison pics and the front of the carrier housing that contains the pinion gear is longer.

anyone know if the interior from an 83 grand prix will fit in a 79 cutlass supreme?

Should be a bolt in as far as upholstery/door panels go. I think the dashes/instrument panels are diff tho.
