Re: [Chrysler300] 1962 Rear Axle

I would suggest using the disc brake rear end from a 74 Imperial, if you can find one. They bolt in.  Just so your aware the disc brake calipers on the Imperial, one faces forward the other to the rear, interesting isn't it?? I did that swop on my 66 Sport Fury convertible, and will do it again on my 57 300C, if I can find one again. Good Luck.

The rear end from a 70 Challenger fits right in. I did that swap on a 62 Newport I had a few years ago.
If I remember right, the leaf spring perches were just 1/8 inch off compared to the 62, not enough to bother with moving them...

Hi Group,
I'm tired of fighting with the tapered rear axle assembly, as well as the "finiky" brakes in my 62. Does anyone know which Mopar rear axle will swap in. I'm probably going to install all wheel disc brakes in the near future as well. Comments appreciated. Thanks, Charlie in Ottawa.
