How to Disassemble the C4 Corvette Rear-End

Chapter 6 of 1957 CORVETTE RESTOMOD by Steven E. Michael
Author Steven E. Michael walks you through the entire restoration and build process of a 1957 RestoMod.

Using the 1957 Corvette as the starting point, the chassis is upgraded with C4 Corvette (year 1996) suspension and steering components.  Add a 1999 Corvette LS1 power plant and Tremec T56 manual overdrive transmission, and this will be one potent hot rod.

Written for the beginner, by a beginner, the chapters speak in easy to understand language and take extra care in explaining the intricacies of restoring and modifying the C1 Corvette.

Each chapter has detailed color photos with pointers to help illustrate exactly what to look for and what to do.  Unlike any other car manual you have ever seen, this book will take the fear factor out of Corvette hot rodding.

With 39 color photos and detailed pointers to each procedure, chapter 6 fully explains the best way to disassemble the C4 Corvette rear suspension and drivetrain.  The best tools to use and steps to follow are highly detailed for the beginner to safely remove all suspension parts, the brake and hub assemblies, and the differential carrier.

One of the highlights is the safe removal of the composite leaf spring - always a difficult process.

Written for the beginner, but valuable to even the most experienced restorer, every aspect of disassembly is included here - including organizational tips for marking and organizing removed components.  This is a must-have for any C4 Corvette enthusiast!

NEW!  Chapters are now packaged for the front and rear of the C4 Corvette - and at discounts from single chapter purchases!
