Millions of Chevrolet vehicles were built and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, and the great majority of those were rear wheel drive models with differentials known as 10-bolts or 12-bolts. High performance limited slip versions of these diffs also have been installed in Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes and many other GM muscle cars from 1964 through the 1970s as well as Chevy and GMC trucks.

Many of these diffs are now more than 40 years old and are due for an overhaul. This book walks you through the entire process of disassembly, evaluating, and rebuilding the perfect differential for your GM application. In the step-by-step guide, you learn how to completely disassemble the diff, evalutate components, and select replacement parts. You're also shown all the up-to-date techniques for re-assembling the diff and axle. Informative sections on axle identification and replacement parts are also provided.

Maybe you have found a salvage-yard unit and want to rebuild it to upgrade your existing vehicle. Maybe you would like to install an aftermarket 12-bolt assembly for extreme performance or racing. This is the only book dedicated solely to rebuilding, setting up, and modifying these axle assemblies for long service life and maximum performance.
