      C5 Corvette suspension adaptors

      Hey Guys.

      Iv made 10 sets of steel adaptors to adapt the c5 front suspension and subframe to a custom frame(rail).
      I was building a set for myself and then decided to make some more sets as i feel there might be some interest for these.
      These could be easily welded to a 2x4” frame rail and would save much time on measuring and getting the allignment right.
      Ive used the stock frame rails for the dimensions so everything lines up as it would in the Corvette

      Made out of 3/16” thick tubing and laser cut plates.
      Fully welded
      Grade 8/ 10.9 metric hardware
      30 1/2” between frame rails (when using 2x4” rails)

      Those are pretty nice. A lower cost alternative to the Dobbertin adapters I used on my 56 Cameo. I like that they use the stock shocks. Do you have rear adapters too?

      Thanks.
      Yes just wanted to keep them low cost and easy to incorporate.
      No. Not yet at least.

      How’s the alignment as far as specs? Same as the corvette or improved?
      Looks good!

      If you’re suggesting sending men with weapons of war to take my weapons of war,then I’m fairly certain that’s what’s called an act of war… and the definition of tyranny.which coincidentally is the reason for the second amendment to begin with!

      The allignment would be the same as the corvette. As the mounting points are in the exact location as the stock frame.

      Hey Jason

      No that is on the inside of the 2x4 rails. So thats the space you have for your engine and headers setup.
