Excellent Conversion Kit! Intalled on 54 Belair

October 03, 2016
I installed this kit on my 54 BelAir by myself in a weekend. Excellent instructions provided and high quality parts made for an easy installation. Went with this kit combined with a 8.5 Posi differential from an 81 Camaro and it fit like a glove! Would highly recommend this conversion kit.
Pros:
  • High Quality
  • Direct Bolt In Replacemen
  • Easy Installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

This kit is made for 3" diameter axle tubes. If your rear end has smaller axle tubes you will need different U bolts and possibly some modification to the spring pads. Yes you can use lowering blocks if you want to lower the ride height even more.

GM used different length, width, and also cinch bolt location over the years. This kit is designed for an easy install kit for the 1949-54 Chevy cars and we also offer 910122387 for the earlier’37-39 Chevy cars. Currently we do not offer a kit for the ’40-48 but you may want to check with TCI if the kit is available and nearest vendor.

Are the shocks in the picture the ones that come with kit? They do not work on a 53 . A 53 chevy has a stud on the top.

No this picture does not have an accurate image for the shock absorbers. If you look at the instructions it shows the correct shocks that have a bushing on one end and a stud mount on the other end.

do the new leaf springs have the centering pin in the center of the axel or is it offset like the stock leaf springs

The centering pin will be centered on the axle tube of your rear end once you weld on the axle bracket that is included in this kit. The centering pin is not centered front to rear in the leaf springs but this is engineered to retain the stock wheelbase and wheel location in the wheel well.
