1953-62 CORVETTE CUSTOM-WIDTH 9-INCH REARENDS
* Jig-Built and Aligned * All Brackets TIG Welded
* Complete with Alloy Axles * New Round-Back Currie Housings
Narrowed rearends are the only way to go, especially if you want your Corvette to have the right stance! One of our most popular services is narrowing any 9-inch straight-axle rearend. We can narrow your 9-inch rearend housing or you can have a new Round-Back Currie housing, Alaton's FAB9 housing, or a Quickchange style with gears.
Our straight-axle housing package includes a new jig-narrowed Round-Back Currie housing, any width, new custom length Dutchman alloy axles (any spline), any wheel bolt-pattern, new billet housing ends with big bearings, and custom laser-cut 4-link, Panhard, coilover or ShockWave brackets TIG welded to the housing. We jig-straighten all housings after all brackets are welded into position.
1953-62 CORVETTE 9-INCH REAREND KIT
Our 9-inch rearend kit (shown) welds into the same original rear axle centerline for a stock appearance under the fender. The kit features aluminum coilover shocks with a three position lower mount bracket on the housing, 4-link adjustable urethane-bushed control arms (1" X .156" wall seamless tube), and an adjustable urethane-bushed Panhard bar that bolts to the housing and needs the frame bracket welded into position. The forward mounting point for the 4-link bracket locates into the stock frame-mounted forward spring hangars. This is where more welding is required along with a couple of upper coilover mount supports that get welded into the upper crossmember. The stock driveshaft is also retained, since only a new U-joint is required with two different cup sizes. It is optionally available any width with alloy axles, rear discs, adjustable coilover shocks, 1-inch antisway bar and rear gears.
