      A little Corvette help, please

      If anyone is working with a C5, C6 or C7 Corvette suspension, could anyone be kind enough to take a few measurements? Looking for upper and lower A arm measurements across the frame side, and out to the ball joint, as well as the spindle measurements top to bottom, spindle center, and steering arm length and height over the spindle center. The purpose is to see how well they'll match up for my truck project. I'd take measurements myself but Corvettes of any year do not show up in any of my local pull a part yards.

      If anyone knows of a web site that shows the critical measurements for a Corvette suspension, that would be great too.

      Hmm, may not be the way forward here then. The search continues. Thanks, appreciate it.

      Sorry, thought it was a start. Hard to make measurements like that on a complete car. I’m sure Google will get you what you want. Just takes time...

      Don
      Sorry, didn't mean for it to come across that way. Your post was helpful, I meant that based on your post that my search for a suitable front suspension continues. It looks like to use a Corvette front that I'd have to get some serious frame work done up front. I may yet do this when my truck goes to the shop, if they ever get a spot ready, but if I can find a spindle that will fit either with or without A arms, then I might be able to save some time and money on this project.
