CPP 5-Lug Rear Axle Conversion – 63-70 Chevy & GMC Pickup
If you’ve upgraded your trucks front end to late model 5-lug on 5″ Chevrolet truck bolt circle disc brakes, now is the time to upgrade your rear end. With the availability of 5-lug trailing arm rear ends quickly drying up, we now offer 5-lug axles that will install into your 6-lug 10 and 12 bolt rear end. Our axles come pre-drilled with a 5-lug on 5″ Chevrolet truck bolt circle and fit 1963-70 rear ends. The axles accept 1971-72 truck drums and use the existing brake hardware. Available as a complete kit with axles, wheel studs and new brake drums. 1963-64 trucks require the use of the spider gear set which is included in the kit.
Factory 6-lug applications had 7/16″ dia. studs and 5 on 5-lug kits have 1/2″ dia. studs.
*Check your axle length: 1965-69 axles are 30-3/4″ while 1970 are 31-1/2″.
