1,000 HP Extreme Duty Rear Axles and CV Joints Package

These Extreme-Duty axles for the 2010+ Chevrolet Camaro SS are designed to handle up to 1,000 HP! Using chrome moly center bars, 108mm Porsche style CV's and bolt on chrome moly inner and outer stubs, these are a direct bolt on that fit the stock hubs and come complete with all the necessary hardware. Not only will these axles handle the horsepower, they use different diameter chrome moly axle bars on each side which will eliminate wheel hop. Wheel hop at launch can be extremely damaging to the drivetrain and makes getting traction very difficult.

The factory Camaro axles are made with different diameter axle bars, but the spline diameter is the same on both sides and the large diameter axle bar tapers down to a spline that is half the diameter. This transition creates a weak point on the axle bar that cannot withstand increased horsepower. Our axles are made with 1-1/8” & 1-3/8” diameter bars that are splined on the full diameter of the bar, without being tapered down so drastically and creating a weak point (see the photo that shows our extreme duty axles: stock axle bar on left and extreme-duty axle bar on right).

These axles and CV joints are priced as a complete set and have a 1 year warranty.

I know this is a big ticket item. We could do a Group Buy if there is interest. We would need 5 or more orders and we could knock 10% off the price.

Thanks,
Steve

How much are we talking? Went to the website and couldn't find anything for the 2010's.

Merc 10-11-2009 11:10 PM

So how many HP can the stock center section handle?

I'd be interested in the group buy.

Speed74SS 10-17-2009 05:37 PM

I would be interested as well.

We have two, just need three more and we can get this going. When we get five I'll post up a coupon code you can enter when checking out to give you the discount.

Thanks,
Steve

Speed74SS 10-18-2009 07:49 PM

Sounds great!! Let's go boys - I know there's more out there that need these axles...

the rich dude 10-18-2009 09:00 PM

are these axles staggered in size to help reduce wheel hop?

5th Gen SS 10-18-2009 09:05 PM

Count me in for a set. I will be pushing those numbers next Feb/March. First SEMA then phase 2.

We have three, two more and we're good to go.

pharmd 10-18-2009 09:40 PM

I'll repeat an earlier question...after this what becomes the weakest link? Another poster asked the strength of the center section...If we upgrade the DS, the tranny/clutch/converter....now the CV's, looks like the center section is the next candidate...Anyone know the limits?

FrankT 10-18-2009 09:53 PM

I'm in for a set.

Great, one more and we're good to go :)

Just an FYI if there are any G8 guys lurking we have this same 1,000 HP Axle/CV package for the G8 now as well - click here.

Thanks,
Steve

SpohnPerformance, I am interested as well. Can you provide any information on what is required to replace these? Is there an install video or instructions that can be downloaded?

Also pharmd has asked a very good question below that we all need to know. Some are trying to plan for the overall driveline. Do you have any ideas on this?

OK Not to be a hater but are you f-n crazy? 1850 bucks for axles?? (How much of a discount is this buy? It better be huge.) I had a fully built rearend for a Mustang that cost me that.... for a whole rear end. My rear end was designed for over 1000HP and included gears, center section, axles, new housing, etc. Heck that even included installation. I beat on that rear with slicks and 5000 rpm launches for years on a 9 second car and it held up.

Guys do a little checking this might be some nice kit but for that price it better be life-time warranty and some really fancy stickers. (Heck my 31 spline mouser axles were life-time warranty and cost 400 bucks.)

I know we are talking axles with CV Vs a live axle setup but this is insane $$$. I really want to upgrade my axles but at that price I am going to wait till something more reasonable comes along because as popular as these cars are someone will release a more reasonable priced product.

If you do not think this is pricey then why is the Camaro part 50 bucks more than the G8 part. They are mechanically almost the same car.

600hp-lpe 10-19-2009 08:20 AM

Prices for the axles are $1850.00 to as high as $2100.00 for this car..

You can stay with the stock ones.

I have almost 200 HP more than stock and want piece of mind at the racetrack. Especially if I add more power... which will be likely.

SpohnPerformance 10-19-2009 03:45 PM

Ok guys this GP is a go as I have five commitments now.

You can order these by phone or online. When ordering online enter the following coupon code in the shopping cart: 1000AGP

2010 Camaro Axle Package - click here

2008-2009 Pontiac G8 Axle Package - click here

We'll keep this coupon code active until this Friday 10/23/09 at 4:30 PM (Eastern). The sooner everyone gets their order in the sooner we can get them rolling. If anyone else wants in you can use the above coupon code until Friday afternoon.

Thanks!
Steve

Installation would be by the service manual as they are a 100% direct replacement, there's no mods, etc. required.

As for the strength of the center section it's too early to say. We have a customer running low 9's with a G8 and his center section is still doing fine. I'm sure the aftermarket will be all over the center section/gear market soon enough, we just have to be patient.

KBearZ28 10-19-2009 07:52 PM

Spohn makes exceptional products and has fantastic customer service. I know a lot of people who have their products on 3rd and 4th gens and are very please with the quality and results, including myself with my 4th gen!
