You may want to cut out the rubbery bit first to give you enough room to install the top spherical mount. Depends on how long the top pin is on your shocks. I know the length varies between shock makers.

    Personally I'd ditch the stock flange/bracket and just get a metal solid one. Any vette one will work as they're all the same size. Just need a couple of pairs of bolts and nuts of similar size.

    Did the C5 flanges increase the total shock height? They look like they may have added to the stack height since they are not as flat as the stockers.

    Don't think so. If anything it was negligible.

    Here's what they look like on KWs with the stock flanges opened up. I had this work done buy a local chassis builder guy since it's been so f***ing hot it would make Naf sweat and I needed to get this done before my next track outing.

    Looks good mate. Glad you got them installed.

    Penske's were to the best of my knowledge a one off (or rather a few were built, I believe total of 5). The rears are apparently custom (or at least the bracket is). Picked them up a while ago from a member here.

    Who wants to split another set?

    Do these work on stock shocks? I may be willing to split with somebody.

    Crank's got them on stockers. Looks like the stock mount has to be modified by removing some rubber. Correct?

    Anyone know where we can get a pair of C5 rear upper shock brackets for cheap? Luke, LG?
