A Pair of Offset Trailing Arms with 33 Spline Hy-tuff steel and Bearing Hubs
We have built the unbreakable outer axle. You read it correctly. We offer a life time replacement outer axle for the original customer. We are offering this bullet proof axle for our customers so they will have an axle that can back up the Racers Rear End we developed. "One and Done" is our mantra. We love working on Corvettes and making them better than the day they rolled off the assembly line.
While the rear suspension remained basically unchanged from 1963-1979, the 427 big block with 425 horse power and 415 foot pounds of torque was the highest rated engine GM put in those Corvettes. The 63-64 rear ends were upgraded with a new posi-traction. The 1967 rear differential case saw a couple of subtler changes. These upgrades were not enough to handle the very common 500 HP or 1000 HP engines that are becoming more common for the current 1963-82 Corvette owner.
While making the 63-79 Corvettes stronger and safer we also realize our customers have to be dollar smart. You will spend more money upgrading your outer axles any other way then simply purchasing the Dragvette 33 spline outer axle / trailing arm package.
What does the OEM hub assembly imply? It implies that should your wheel bearings ever go out you can replace the hub assembly just like the new Corvettes and all modern cars. We choose a rear hub assembly from the supercharged Corvettes so you know it will stand up to all the power and abuse you can throw at it.
This is a list of features we incorporated in our new products.
1. We use a Van Steel trailing arm for the foundation. These run about $500.00 a pair.
A. We weld a new mounting fork to the trailing arm for the original strut bar and shock mount.
B. The bumper pad is changed so a 6-Link will bolt directly onto the trailing arm for future suspension upgrades.
2. We use an OEM Corvette bearing hub assembly.
A. You can choose your stud size the original 7/16-20, a 3" long 7/16-20, 12MM, or 3" long
with 1/2-20 threads. You can choose the length.
B. This is our standard offering bigger, 12 MM studs. They are larger than the original 7/16"
you use your original Corvette rotor, just drill the stud holes out to 1/2" for a perfect fit
Your original aluminum Corvette rim will fits perfectly and we provide you with the
classic acorn style lug nuts with 12 MM threads
D. Your original brake caliper bolts on, along with the stock brake hose.
E. If your wheel bearing should ever fail it is readily available at a NAPA dealer and it is a
simple job you do need a 160 ft lb torque wrench to tighten the axle nut.
3. Racevette uses a premier USA axle manufacturer. They provide us with a top quality axle.
A. We designed this part to slip in for easy bearing replacement if ever needed.
B. It bolts to the existing Corvette drive flange.
C. You utilize your original half shafts.
