Contrary to belief, the shockless beam can and does ride amazing when using Airkewld's delrin bushings. One tip though, if the vehicle is adjusted all the way down, the ride will be rough, lift it up and inch and the ride improves. All Shockless PRObuilt Beams are 6 inch narrowed.

Anytime you rebuild/update/upgrade your transaxle, it never comes with oil in it. Make sure you add 90 wt after it is installed. It would be wise to update the trans mounts, nose cone seal and shift coupler/bushing if equipped.

The PRO's Recommendations:
  • Billet Bearing Caps make the job easy
  • The install kit comes with seal kits, hardware, axle nuts and seal races. Make sure every box is checked when doing a quality installation.
*Disc Brakes are optional
