For your 1955/56 chevy car.
This new 1955/56 Chevy Rear Axle Bearing Retainer/Dust Shield has been CNC machined from solid cold roll bar stock. CNC machine parts are much stronger than stamped parts because they are uniformed in size.
The original stamped parts are .070 to .075 of an inch thick.
All of our Bearing Retainer Plates are made on state of the art CNC machine at a ISO 9001 machine shop. Our plates are .100 of an inch thick.
The original plates were designed for narrow 14 and 15 inch tires and wheels that were only 6 inches wide.
