PRI 2013: Moser’s 5th Gen Camaro Live Axle Conversion Kit

It’s no secret that an independent rear suspension is not the most optimal drag racing suspension. When horsepower levels increase to over four digits, durability becomes a big concern. Not to mention that an IRS isn’t as repeatable as solid axle from a launching perspective. In a game where a thousandth of a second counts, that just won’t fly.

The package requires minimal modification and the fewest amount of modifications than any other live axle conversion package for the 5th gens. – Jeff Anderson

Continuing along with their line of bolt-in live axle packages, Moser Engineering recently released their latest offering for the fifth generation Camaro. “This is a continuation of our C5 package and designed for the Stock Eliminator racers, though this package really goes a step beyond what we have done before,” said Jeff Anderson of Moser Engineering. “The package requires minimal modification and the fewest amount of modifications than any other live axle conversion package for the 5th gens.” This isn’t a race only piece though – Moser says it can easily be installed into a street car!

The live axle package is optioned with either a GM 12-bolt rearend or a Moser fabricated M9. Tubing is primarily chromoly with a mild steel front cross member.
