  • Performance suspension for Avanti

    Here is the forged aluminum suspension with the calipers that we are going to use on the Avanti stainless steel frame. The C5 Corvette calipers are adapted to the C4 suspension, with the Corvette logo removed. These are being utilized witht the C5 rotors. These are approximately 1 1/4 thick rotors, as compared to the 7/8 to 1.1 on most Camaros and Mustangs.

    Great to see you didn't do what all the stree rod chassis builders do.
    That is to make the upper amd lower control arm mount points parallel. When I did mine (C-4), I spent a lot of time making sure that I was able to utilize all of GM design crew for a well designed system. I did make a coupla small changes for the difference in wheel base for the anti-dive effect, but that was about it.

    Nicely done. While I'm not sure I agree about your material are doing a very nice job at what you're doing. I know it's a lot of work.
