5th Gen Camaro 'Hammerhead' Differential Mounting Kits

Type I Drivetrain Configuration (First Design)


Due to the different angles, widths of the cradles and placements of the differentials, we no longer offer the entire kit - however, we do offer the three 3" x 3" rounded-top uprights (without the plates on the bottoms) as shown in the photos below - so you can position the differential yourself.  The three uprights with shipping are $175.00.

This kit allows the installation of a 2010 – 2015 5th Generation Camaro 'Hammerhead' aluminum differential, directly onto the C5 Corvette rear cradle –  completely replacing the factory Corvette differential.

The C5 and C6 Corvettes are all built with the transmission bolted directly to the differential for better weight distribution.  So if a builder wants to go the conventional route, (front engine and transmission - driveshaft -  rear differential) this is the best and most cost effective way to accomplish the task.
