    Hello jb1 , Charlie76MX, Joel and Blooze with others here are a great help with the knowledge they openly share. I read your question and thought I could add to the discussion. I have a 512 kit on a stretched fiero here, along with another longitudinal build going that uses all C5 rear suspension, brakes and stock C5 axles. My solution to mate the C5 stuff to the Boxster 5-speed was to use Porsche 930 inner CV's (the axle spline matches the C5) and a pair of 100mm to 108mm pattern adapters at the output flanges. My 97-01 Boxster trans from a 2.7 car has the small 100mm pattern flanges. I considered putting the C5 set up in the rear of the 512TR, so I measured the width of this set-up and would need 4'' longer bare axle shafts on both sides to fit the TR body's wider rear stance, the CV's would not be affected. BTW the porsche 930 CV is a plunger type which helps everything play 'nice'. jbi , why not use C5 stuff ? -Vinny

        Sorry some reason my reply did not post,
        I am running the c6 due to the article Charlie wrote and using the Lexus axles.. the CV splines from the Lexus axles fit the c6 hubs but not the c5, the suspension components are near identical between the 2.. once assembly arrives I am going to look into using the whole c6 cradle assembly as it is around 62.5" track width and my car is a bit over 65". I'm sure with proper offset wheels I will be able to make up the roughly 1.5" difference on each side..

                This is what I built way too late in my build. Now I can see all the suspension parts working together and adjust and measure without guessing. If I want to see how much one inch more of ride height will do or lower tires will affect my build I can see it clearly. Jack stands are safe but the car is not going to ride on jack stands https://i.imgur.com/xGXRWMP.jpg

                  Ericracing, that is very similar to what I had in mind... Only I have thought about having something attach to floor jack to move suspension up and down... I have all front and rear z06 suspension ready to go , just between work and kids not had any time to put into car..
