I should have spotted that too. Greg is right. Add 3/16" or 1/4" flat bar to the sides of the bottom ball joint plate.

You guys are great!

That is on my to-do list before I finish all the suspension stuff. I really need to get my body mounted to make sure that everything lines up.

I would like to order my coil overs soon and here are some options that I know you guys can help me out with.

I set the ride height of the chassis and the distance from bolt to bolt on the shock mounts was right at 12”. Jdinner once told me that if I had that measurement then I would need coil overs that were 10” compressed and 14” extended.

I found some coil overs and I have some questions so I would like to hear your opinions.
Does it matter if they come with rod ends or with bushings? What is the preference here?

Hi, I use rod ends for track,if you are using street go with bushings, softer ride.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but on page 3 and 4 there is a discussion about the 1" bolts required on the front bearing hubs. Instead of using S-10 hubs on the front I used 1999 Corvette bearing hubs and there is no hole in the middle of these for a bolt. Does this mean it isn't needed on Corvette hubs, only S-10? It makes sense that it wouldn't be needed on the Corvette hubs since they are not driving axles, but I wanted to make sure.
Thanks.

The Corvette bearings do not need a center bolt. The S-10 bearings will fall apart if there is nothing in the center holding it together.

Thanks Jim. It's nice to know that my front end won't fall apart on me going down the highway!

Also I have marked one of the constructional differences -( of no consequence-purely out of interest ) , the shape of the front wheel well to sill/floorpan , looks like it may increase foot space.
Very Happy


This applied to Diablo as well. What model is this image from?

I started turning the naerc plans into a model for my own interest and seeing how it "goes together". I am also measuring a Diablo as I do it and finding there is little similarity between the plans and the actual chassis. :-/

The image in my last post is from naerc? What plan set is that? Doesn't match what I have here.... that image above is a correct chassis...

Could be a Murci then. They were very similar.

Oh- its definitely a murcie model. Very similar to diablo, yes. But the details they have right there are very important.
