How to Replace C4 Corvette Rear Bushings and Universal Joints

Chapter 8 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.

In chapter 8, the methods and tools needed to replace bushings and universal joints are described in detail.  The locations and any modifications needed to accept the upgraded polyurethane bushings are highlighted and explained. 

Included are replacement of bushings for trailing arms, camber rods, anti-sway bar, spring bolt cushions, and carrier arms.

Also included is the correct way to easily remove and install new universal joints in the C4's axle shafts.

With 32 pages and 78 detailed photos, this chapter goes into details not seen in any other instructional manual.  Written in easy-to-understand language, this is a must have for the novice hot-rodder and the Corvette enthusiast.
