Default Big Ford End - "Bolt-On" C6/7 Hybrid Floater

Full Floater System -

Installs onto any Rear-End that utilizes "Early" or "New Style/Torino" Big Bearing Ford Ends.


That's right,,,, you can use your current rear-end housing, NO welding & simple installation. BOLT-ON!


Advantages:

  • Bolts to your Early OR New Style/Torino Big Ford Housing End (Chevy 10/12 bolt application now available! https://lateral-g.net/forums/showthread.php4?t=52854 )
  • Reduces/eliminates brake “knockback”
  • Eliminates axle deflection
  • Wheel & tire remains intact should an axle failure occur
  • Front or Rear Caliper / E-Brake Cable Positions
  • Utilizes the robust, zero maintenance C6/C7 ZO6 Hub Bearing Unit
  • Utilizes OEM C5/C6/C7 Corvette, and 5th/6th Gen Camaro brake kits
  • Utilizes aftermarket C5/C6/C7 Corvette, and 5th/6th Gen Camaro brake kits
  • Utilizes your existing BAER / WILWOOD caliper & rotor (some restrictions apply)
  • Super compact design compared to traditional style full floaters
  • All advantages of a traditional style full floater without the maintenance
  • Replacement parts available at local GM dealer or local parts house
  • No modifications required to the hub bearing unit as other kits in the marketplace
Note: this applications will add 3/16″ per side to your existing wheel mount surface (based on an existing 2.50″ axle/brake offset)

Sounds cool but it might just push the axle out to wide. But perfect for people who want to narrow there rear end but not be commited to the corvette ends.

That could be the case if you have zero room to push your existing wheel/tire combo out a bit (3/16""), but if your current set-up will clear with the additional 3/16" per side, then this will work for you.

YES, takes the OEM C5/6 Park Brake set-up. Most people can even utilize their existing Caliper & Rotor so long as the manufacturer of these pieces offers them in a C5/6 Corvette application.

This set-up takes the same axle as my "weld-on" set=up with the exception of the seal surface on the axle is slightly larger...

Thumbs up

Stupid question- does this make a conventional rear with torino ends into a semi-floater? Curious on pricing as well. Any info would be appreciated.

Yes, with the floating axles it should. I've run a similar weld on style flange and it absolutely has no knock back.
