63-69 are narrower than 70-up by 1.5"

that is with 2" wide brakes and not 2.75" wide brakes,

the width differences are not because of differetn shoe width, the 2.75" wide shoe backing plates are deeper inset to make those axles same overall width from WMS to WMS as the 2" wide shoe axles.

all 70-up axle shafts and housings are same width regardless of shoe width,

the housing width is what changed, IE tube length, in 1970, then in 71 for 2wd's the wheel studs changed to 5 lug pattern with 1/2" studs, away fromt he 69 older 6 lug 7/16" studs pattern same for 2wd and 4x4
