AMC 20 question.

Ok so this questions probably been asked a million times and I've even seen some of the measurements myself, but I guess I'm looking for reassurance and the search function on the iPhone app doesn't work for crap.
I'm trying to figure out if my axle is wide or narrow track.
From brake back to brake back is around 50"
Spring perch to spring perch is 38.5"
WMS to WMS shows 55" but I just stuck the shafts back in and the (lug plate-can't think straight haha) on the driver side back on so it probably really should be 54.5".
RH shaft was around 28.5" from end of spline to WMS
LH shaft measured 25" but again I just stuck it back together to measure it.

Any input would be appreciated and I'm sorry if this is the millionth time this question has been asked, but I get the same 6-7 threads no matter what I type in the search bar on this app.

if those are the factory axles from 1977 then they are narrow track.

I'm really not sure if they're the factory axles or not.

Ok I finally found something that made since. The AMC 20 axle parts page in a quadratic magazine haha. Found the length of just the shafts without hubs and apparently I have a wide trac. It's a freakin frankenjeep.

Anyone else had any problems with superior axle not shipping parts. My axle shafts have been on backorder for 3-4 weeks now and it's starting to get old.
