Many of the high-horsepower builds that we have covered over the past nyear have benefited from Moser’s differential and axle development. One of these was the turbocharged ’67 Camaro from Cobweb Specialties of Edgewood, Washington that we learned last January used a set of Moser’s 33-spline pieces and a Truetrac differential.
This time Moser Engineering serves the ‘Vette community with their new solid-axle, rear subframe kit for all ’97-04 C5s. The kit is designed with the independent rear, transaxle design of the C5 in mind, and modifications to the transmission and torque tube tunnels, along with the upper rear control arm mounts must be made prior to the kit’s installation. Obviously, the transmission will need to be relocated to a more-conventional spot directly behind the engine as well.
Moser’s solid-axle kit comes with everything needed for the C5 rear swap, including a 12-bolt housing, 35-spline alloy axles, a 1350 chrome moly pinion yoke and Timken bearings. The assembly also features a 5/8″-inch drive stud kit and a set of sealed axle bearings.
The rear assembly is built with NHRA’s Stock Eliminator classes in mind, but each kit can be modified for other applications as well. One of the best parts of Moser’s C5 conversion kit is that it’s ready to buy and install, as each kit is delivered within 3 weeks of completion of your online ordering form.
With their fast and easy ordering process, Moser Engineering promises that your time spent on their website won’t be the only thing moving quickly. Their new solid-axle rear assembly for the C5 is one that is essential for any maximum-effort drag conversion!
