How to Rebuild C4 Corvette Rear Brakes

Chapter 7 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.

Chapter 7 has 34 steps and 89 color photos that fully explain exactly how to rebuild C4 Corvette rear hubs, brakes, and calipers.

Written for the beginner, by a beginner, it talks in plain language and details every aspect of the C4's rear hub and brake operation.  Every photo has detailed pointers that identify exactly what should be done every step of the way.

The complete rebuild of the rear brake calipers is one of the highlights of this chapter.  Every facet of disassembly and rebuilding with new parts is highly detailed in this chapter.  The chapter also gives you part numbers and available vendors for all replacement parts.

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!
