The 1958 to 1964 Chevrolet cars and 1960-1972 Chevy C-10 half ton trucks have a frame structure that requires a 2 piece driveshaft design. This small diameter original equipment 2 piece driveshaft has never been associated with strength and reliability.
It was built with a very soft and flimsy rubber mounted center support bearing to facilitate the forward and back movement necessary for suspension travel.
The round mounting bracket style center support bearing is known for coming apart and is the least desirable for anything high performance. Those of you with a manual transmission know firsthand how bad these can be when you try to launch the car at anything over a fast idle.
For the Chevy owner with a hydraulic suspension they are the first thing to get changed.
We also have a spline and slip style replacement rear section that you can add to your existing original equipment front section to accommodate an air ride suspension or hydraulics. With the addition of our OEM size urethane center support bearing you can upgrade your existing driveshaft.
