    Is anyone using C4 oe front supension on a countach with 15" wheels?

    Is anyone using C4 oe front supension on a countach with 15" wheels? I test fitted my wheels and it seemed like they would fit with 1" spacers but I was concerned about the wheel turning radius being to wide.. Has anyone felt with this or is running this setup? And would you mind emailing pics..?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.. I wana get started and all I can find is C4 stuff

    Only thing I caution here is the brake rotor size and brake caliper rubbing on your rims. I would have the whole thing put together and fit inside to see if it all clears as I have read that 15" rims might be too small to fit all the brake hardware in. The C4 is 13" brakes correct?

    Good luck with the frame build. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I go to get my Countach body today....

    Cheers

    Thanks Don, Im way exited to get started..I think im set on the Mustang II front end. It seems to be the best solution and easiest way as all the front end geometry is already done for me. Ijust test fitted the wheels on a C4 and theyll clear with a 1" adapter...

    This is the package I bought and will be heading to pick up today and tomorrow.

    http://www.madmechanics.com/the-mall/25th-anniversary-countach-package-in-renton-washington-$3800/

    Fiero was sold to someone else and I picked up the body and engine package at a much better price.

    Do you have a Countach body yet? Can't remember where yo er in your search for one.

    Cheers
