LOWER CONTROL ARM BRACKET
Relocates the pivot point of the lower control arm to be parallel under all conditions. The addition of this
part alone will reduce oversteer and improve tire life. With the addition of the bracket and rebuilt control
rods you will find that not only does the car corner better but tracks straighter on the open highway.
There is no change in ride feel. I cannot think of any other modification that makes this much difference
for this little money. 1965-69 C5118 5 lbs.
REAR AXLE
(WHEEL)
BEARINGS
1960-64 CARS & 1961-65 VANS
The rear axle bearings are probably the most dangerous part of the whole car. It is not uncommon for the axle shaft to pull right out. In some cases
the axle shaft just worked out and in others the bearing has failed. The 1965-69 style fixed this but people with the earlier style should not ignore any
possible bearing noises! ANY NEW OLD STOCK BEARINGS SHOULD BE REPACKED WITH GREASE AS THE OLD GREASE IS USUALLY HARD.
NOTE: The 1960-62 (stamped steel housing) will fit 63-64 (although it is not as snug in the lower a-frame opening). The 1963-64 (cast iron housing)
will not fit 1960-62 opening without considerable grinding.
CLARK REPRO AXLE BEARINGS: See page 166
GM BEARINGS: Original "swivel" bearings as supplied on the car, becoming very rare.
AFTERMARKET BEARINGS: We seldom have these.
GREASING NOTE:
Do not over-grease original or repro bearings. GM DID NOT pack them full like the front wheel bearings. If you use
too much, grease will be forced past seals and can get on brake shoes. Grease all rollers & races plus a little extra
in the middle, but DO NOT pack!
AXLE BEARINGS: Complete units – all come with new puller ring
