In this post, we’ll show and demenstrate the process taken to install and repair our 1963 Corvette Front Suspension and Seats.
We have put the assembly marks on the front springs, installed the springs, spindles, brake backing plates, steering arms, and sway bar linkage. We also have rebuilt the ball joint on the steering relay rod. We brazed in the seat adjuster handles and have upholstered the seat backs.
