The rear wheels fit perfect.  I had to use 1" spacers in the front. 88-96 c4 front suspension has a 2" wider track than 84-85. I had the 88-96 and I didnt want to widen the frame. I don't blame you for not wanting to widen it. The steering rack, clutch master cylinder, and many other things will need to done over.

Did you end up having to widen the front frame to get the wheels to fit? I'm trying to avoid doing that! Seems like it would be a pain.

Looking good, cementhead.  Are you using the Corvette C5 suspension or a different setup?

Jim
I am using a c4 front suspension with 13inch grand sport brakes. Rear is chassisworks tubular.
I was wondering when we were going to get to see it mounted
Looks awesome in white!

Where did you find wheels or are the rears same width as fronts?
They are modular society 20x13 rears and 20x9.5 fronts. Came off an 07 Murci.
