C4 Rear-End Disassembly
In this chapter we completely disassemble the C4 rear suspension to its individual components.
The C4 Corvette was in production from 1984 to 1996, and improvements were made throughout the production run.
My donor car for the rear suspension and drivetrain is a 1995 Corvette convertible with automatic transmission, and I have big plans for its upgrade. But this chapter will help you no matter what year C4 you may have.
This chapter begins by giving background on my rear-end purchase. Then the components of the suspension & drivetrain are identified for you through detailed photos and pointers.
The tools you need are then listed, and they are also extensively illustrated throughout the chapter as they are used. Finally, I show you the safest method to secure the front-end to begin the disassembly process. The work area is discussed for ease of work and your safety.
The basics of the C4 rear suspension are explained fully in this chapter. A complete understanding of the components and the engineering GM used to make a world-class handling package is all in this informative chapter.
With 15 clear-cut steps and 39 revealing color photos, this chapter helps you make short work of disassembling your C4 rear-end.
