Maybe I'm way off base here but if rules would allow it...couldn't you just cut the package tray out of a "regular" old iron GM and weld it in place of the caddy one so you wouldn't have to screw around getting a standard GM rear end in the car? I don't have a caddy to measure just yet but I would think it could be done if the width between the humps is close.

If I remember correctly this was on the other site under the Cadillac tips but crusher had mentioned if u take the tie rods off the main steering bar and disconnect the pitman and idler arm u could flip that main bar over to gain a couple inches of oil pan clearance ....question is are you grinding out the holes for the taper of the tie rods?
Or you could buy ZTR D.I. Legal upper mounts only... Accepts factory style control arms.. And your 10 bolt will bolt right in this way... Cheap and easy without all the extra work of cutting, measuring, welding, etc... I'm sure CheezWhiz would agree..
