Good job, nice to see you using a jig, I made a reversible jig with the bottom arm on one side the top arm on the other, no sense in wasting the big chunk of steel.... Plus having the jig allows future fabrication.
Thanks! A reversible jig is a great idea!

A great deal on Ebay. I purchased my 2 rear tires from ebay, Hankook Ventus 305/30zr19 for $280, with free shipping. What a great deal. I had discount tire mount and balance them. I asked the manager if I could buy road hazzard on the Hankooks, he said sure. I purchased road hazzard for $40 per tire. Being frugal can be fun!

Yes 84-87 are different length AND bolt pattern than the 88-93. They won't interchange with the 88-93 version. The 84-87 also used a shorter spindle.

So, the they are 88+ ?    I believe the 87 and under are a different length than the 88...

No, the control arms and knuckles are the second generation design for the C4 corvette.

What control arms are you using on the suspension? Corvette? How did you select your mounting points for correct geometry?
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?
