Re: [FWDLK] Rear Disc Brake Conversion for 1957 Dodge Custom Royal -- What's a 'green' axle bearing?



Green bearings convert the factory conical roller bearings to actual roller bearings.  This is fine for drag cars which put a lot of horses to the pavement. Drag cars generally go in straight lines...not so good for road cars.  But since you probably aren't daily driving this car it shouldn't be a problem.  You'll have to have them pressed onto the axles.  I've had several sets done on 8 3/4 rears in the past.  They are only for 8 3/4 rears so far as I know.  Never had a failure.  Last set I got from mancini racing.

Subject: [FWDLK] Rear Disc Brake Conversion for 1957 Dodge Custom Royal -- What's a 'green' axle bearing?

I converted my front brakes to disc several years ago, and now want to convert the rear brakes as well.  I found a kit for the rear brakes here:  http://www.ecihotrodbrakes.com/rear_discbrake_conversions.html

 

There’s a note which states “Chrysler product rear axles require one piece "GREEN" axle bearings.”  Can anyone tell me what ‘green’ axle bearing are, and where I can obtain them?

 

Thanks so much for your help!
