I just recently bought a book that shows a stand that holds the drivetrain/suspension of any C5 corvette. You must have a two post lift for this stand to work.

This would allow a person to keep there entire driveline attached while working on certain parts. Also things such as clutch installs and motor repair could be done alot faster!

Has anyone every seen one of these stands in person? Are there any plans out there for fabricating one of these? Just curious? Here are some pics:

Nice stand. Have never seen anything like it. Would make things less complicated. Looks like the fender on this car is pulled out as well. Is this how they load the drive-train at the factory?

Looks like that might be helpful. Does anyone have prints for it? Or at least dimensions of the five points.

Tony,

It would appear that you could use a plumb bob on four of the points if your car was on the rack. The torque/drive shaft tube support looks like it's adjustable fore and aft and maybe in height. You could mark it on the floor. It looks like the only thing you would then need is the correct height of the four supporting points relative to each other. You could also make them adjustable in height. Or someone could just give us the dimensions.

Thanks D.J.

There are times when I can't think outside the box. You make it sound pretty simple. Looks like I gotta start looking for wheels.
