40 might be too tall in the rear depending on how wide your rims will be and how low the car is. I see more potential issues there than in the front.

What's the widest that you'd go in the rear?

With your LSD and our torque, I'd go with a beefier set-up in the rear by helping to get more of that power down better through increased grip. Then again a square set-up has other benefits too.

Depends on what you're looking for.

Will either be 9" wide with EC-7 or 8.5" wide with ARC-8.

Congrats on the new setup. The monster is going to become a beast when you get those new shoes bolted on!
