I guess I missed something, but I have a question.

Have you designed this wheel suspension system yourself or bought a finished one?

I want to do this on my corvette

I designed and built myself. The plates were Laser cut and I believe I have the files for them. The half shaft axles are from a Dodge Viper. If you would like to do this, let me know.

where is it more convenient for you to communicate: here in the topic on the forum, in private messages or by e-mail?

Lets do it on the forum. We do have a download section to post files so that will work.

1. Is there a photo of attaching the upper link to the lever with the wheel?

2. Part "3" differs from the crossbar "Corvette" ?

3. Part "1" attached to the gearbox "4" or to the beam "2"?
Or gearbox and beam?

2. Part "3" differs from the crossbar "Corvette" ? Yes, part "3" is different than a Corvette crossbar.

3. Part "1" attached to the gearbox "4" or to the beam "2"? Or gearbox and beam? Part "1" attaches to the beam "2" through the bolts on both sides of the number 1

1. Is there a photo of attaching the upper link to the lever with the wheel? I may have some better pictures but these show the upper link bracket that was added to the trailing arm

Thanks so much for the explanation!

Why not use the trailing arm from the Corvette?
What is the problem ?
why make another?

The stock Corvette trailing arms are not very easy to modify and there is not much space to add the upper rod. My trailing arms were made from aftermarket trailing arms that were modified with a spherical joint, 20mm added offset and the upper rod end mount.

Default C3 IRS Mod(s)

BBShark has done some great work and kind to share it too. Some great CAD bts over in the downloads section.

I built a Giovanni-mod for the C3. I did the "Johnny Joint Mod" which replaces the standard bushings with spherical bearings.

You can find my IRS Mod here:

BBShark,

Do you have a part number for the front spherical bearing and details how you locked it down?

Thanks
