|With a welder and basic hand tools, you can install these Jim Meyer kits at home in a weekend.|
Narrowed rearends are the only way to go, especially if you want your Chevy 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 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.
TYPICAL CUSTOM-WIDTH REAREND
|UNIVERSAL REAR END KIT|
|Our universal rear end kit, for any vehicle, features a new 9-inch housing any width (at no extra cost) with new axle flanges, 31-spline Dutchman alloy axles (or optional 33 or 35-spline alloy axles), ½-inch axle studs, 18-1/2 or 24-inch long adjustable, urethane bushed, 1-inch od X .156-inch wall 4-link bars, an adjustable, urethane-bushed, low roll-center Panhard bar (1-inch od X .156-inch wall) and a forward 4-link crossmember (1 ¾-inch od X .120-inch wall) that comes extra wide so you can trim to fit you application. To support the forward 4-link crossmember, we include “J-Tubes” that run from the frame back to the forward 4-link crossmember. We also include aluminum adjustable-rebound coilover shocks with a multi-hole bracket on the housing for the stance you like best. All brackets are tig-welded to the housing before it is jig-narrowed and jig-straightened. We provide all grade-8 gold-Zinc fasteners, washers and Nylock nuts and instructions.
Notice the axle tube braces between the center housing and the 4-link brackets on the housing. This gives your axle tubes a little more strength for high torque output. Your options include thirdmembers with any gear ratios, different spring rates (at no extra cost), disc brake kits, coilover shocks with double adjustment for rebound-and-compression and Air Ride Technologies remote operated ShockWave air suspension system.
