    and is there any chance of you passing on the suspension geometry? Is it stock C5 Corvette?

    Scroll down to Suspension Analyzer V2.4 and its a 30 day free trial, You can get the C5 geometry. I checked it against my C5 subframe here and it looks accurate. For me it was a leap-off point cause it looks I'll be moving the Control Arm mounting points outwards a few inches.

    Are you using Google Sketchup?
    Yes

    Adrian, the front I'm using is C4 1984-1996 Vette, does that work for your build? -Vinny

    For this rear to work in the TR, it will need longer axles by about 4'' per side. Those are stock length C5 units with Porsche 930 inner CV's added. -Vinny

    Why did you use C4 for the front rather than the C5? Was there an advantage?

    thanks

    The C4 uses a cross member like the Fiero which locates all 4 control arms along with the rack. Your geometry is already there for you. Also it was way less money than a C5 front end, which when bought the same way comes with the upper arms flopping around cause they mount to the frame of the car. -Vinny

    Hi Vinny! Nice progress!! I will be doing an Enzo replica soon an will be using C5 suspension as well. I wonder why the lower rear A arms are angled upward at the forward mount. I've seen this done on the Factory 5 GTM frame also. Is it the way the Corvette set up is? Any thoughts as to why? Thanks! Eddy
