Can you expand a bit on the "bolt it in" comment?

Will it bolt in to my 81?

That would be real sweet in a Greenwood Tribute Build.
I'm too far down the track to engage - Good Luck on the sale!

Cheers - Jim

I'm looking to get rid of the ridiculous oversteer on the C3's for street driving. I have a racer and understand suspension tuning and really loathe the way the 81 goes into corners. The rear end sux but so does the front. Is this a way forward?

Oh wait, I may be way overdriving my car on the street...

bolt in means it does not require major surgery to install, your trailing arm pockets will need to be made longer up into the frame rail and 4 small tabs will need to be welded (2 per side) under the t-arm pocket, I believe Guldstrand sells a different center bracket for the 80-82 batwing rear end. the Guldstrand 5-link is actually the brain child of noted race car designer Bob Riley, Protofab and George Foltz, they claim the following benefits.

Being that it's an actual Guldstrand part, that's worth something alone.
I'm guessing the buyer would need to replace all the Heims?

Do you know, when installed how the trailing links sit? Are they level or maybe up to the front? Did the rules require they be in the OEM configuration?

Now let me really go out on the limb here, can you post pics of all the manual pages?

I'm getting more interested in that setup, can you elaborate or post the instruction page regarding the mods required to fit it?
Offlist if you prefer, Steve

once you start installing the t-arm pocket bracket, just how much you need to trim becomes evident.

But you mentioned a couple of tabs to be welded? I can envision cutting the pocket opening taller if that's what you're saying.

Wanna contact me offlist with a PM if you don't want to tip your hand here?

Steve

the tabs I mentioned attach below the t-arm pocket and the lower forward link goes through them. self explanatory once you start the install, they are not shown because I have yet to cut them off the car.
