New Holley Products Help LS Swap Your Classic GM Truck With Ease

We’re sure you have noticed the rise in ’60s-’70s model truck restorations. They are all over the place. Rightfully so – these trucks deserve to be loved and appreciated. The folks over at Holley understand that as well. As always, they are here to help. They are constantly working to expand their lineup to help you LS swap your classic GM truck.

’63-’67 Chevrolet C10 LS/LT Swap Engine Mounting Brackets

To ensure you are able to achieve optimal clearance on your drivetrain as well as peak U-joint operation angles, Holley has introduced these new brackets. They are to be used in conjunction with other Hooker Blackheart swap components as well and are designed for both LS and LT engines. These pieces are intended for trucks with factory wide-style frame rails.

These brackets are made from welded steel and have a sleek black finish.

They can be used with Hooker Blackheart 71222024HKR, 71222024HRK-1, or 71222024HKR-2 transmission crossmember. Hooker cast exhaust manifolds and dual exhaust systems are co-developed for this application.

’63-’72 Chevrolet C10 Trailing Arm Rear Suspension Crossmember

For lowered trucks, Holley has come out with trailing arm rear suspension crossmembers. They are designed to eliminate driveshaft clearance issues all while maintaining proper pinion angle. This is made possible by the dual exhaust cutouts. It allows the exhaust system to go through the crossmember instead of having to go under the frame. This gives the truck extra ground clearance and fits up to a 3″ dual exhaust.

There is no cutting required with these crossmembers. They bolt directly into the stock location.

This crossmember will replace your OE crossmember in the stock location. It works well with your factory trailing arms as well as all Hooker Blackheart swap components for 1963-1972 C10 trucks. Please note that this is ONLY for two-wheel-drive trucks with trailing arm rear suspensions and requires a one-piece driveshaft.

You can purchase this here.
