Hello there. I am in the process of minitubbing a 78 Fairmont. Maybe I can help you out a bit.
So let me understand this better. You want to run a 10 inch tire, but want to drop the rear of the car, and effectively raise the tire in the wheelwell?
I am going the minitub route with the coilovers. I will be running stock style controls arms (upper and lower) on the factory brackets. After I cut out the existing factory wheeltubs, and the upper spring perch and all that associated hardware, i'll be able to fit a 325/50/15 in there, which is about 13 inches.
To be honest i'm a little suprised you can't fit that in the stock wheelwell. I've heard of people running 10.5 x 29 in the stock wheelwell with the use of a big hammer.
78 BBF Ford Fairmont Futura, on jackstands, BUT finally making progress.
