Indeed, you are right, I am simply hoping that the rear weights of the 2 vehicles would be close enough that I can keep the Corvette parts.Wouldn't you be more concerned with the rear weight of the vehicle you are puting that suspension under? I understand that if they were the same (corvette and your vehicle) you might not have to change anything, but your springs should be sized for the target vehicle. Just my $.02.
Well, this is very cool, thanks! I had heard about custom-rate Corvette springs but had never looked into it yet. I am glad it is actually available. I did not understand that you had changed the springs on a Vette rear, Vinnie.many places like corvette specialties can supply any spring/rate for any corvette.
Not to drive this thread off topic but the 84-96 C4 Corvettes could be had with square tail lights if it was a LT5, LT4 or LT1 powered car. Also, the curb weight for the C6 corvette is around 3,300lbs. The C7 weighs less.that 3239 is close to actual.The corvettes are getting fat again,not to mention SQUARE TAIL LIGHTS
took an 07 vette over a scale,it was almost 3700 pounds of fat pig!Not to drive this thread off topic but the 84-96 C4 Corvettes could be had with square tail lights if it was a LT5, LT4 or LT1 powered car. Also, the curb weight for the C6 corvette is around 3,300lbs. The C7 weighs less.
That is what I am hoping to do but I am worried that the Corvette spring would be way too stiff...how about you use the springs you have and get a beefy set of shocks with helper springs?
