As to typical parts replacement for a C4 Corvette, I just put a front and rear in my Jeep, and for the front end all I had to replace was the front calipers ($79.00ea w/pads) and outer tie rod ends (about $25.00ea) the rest was in good shape. Mine even came with KYB shocks and slotted rotors. Shop around and don't buy junk just cause it might be a few dollars cheaper up front.

Good luck,


I'm tellin' ya, for a front end that works, updated technology and great resale value for your truck (if that is a consideration) Corvette stuff beats subframe grafts every time.
