Just adding a few photos today
This is a simple photo of C6 - Z51 front and rear suspension cradles sitting on the bench, looking top down. You can find cradle assemblies from a number of yards across the country. You will find varying prices for them. Some vendors do a better job of cleaning and packaging, some, not so much. Some vendors offer free shipping included and others require freight.
My front cradle assembly came from Florida, it was cleaned well, and I paid freight. The rear cradle assembly came from Michigan, it was kinda' dirty but shipping included. In the end all the parts cleaned up well and free of damage.
This photo is the front cradle with the upper frame rails attached. The view is from the rear looking forward. You can easily see the cradle mounting perch points on the driver side, and you can see the frame front and rear attach points. Each cradle perch is cast and machined to a specific dimension. Likewise, the frame attach weldments are jigged and welded in place during the frame build to specific dimension. When the cradle and the frame are mated together on the line there are no shims required.
This photo is of the cradle and frame rail, passenger side, forward looking right. At the bottom of the photo you can clearly see the lower control arm mounting bolts. Directly above you can see the upper control arm mounting pockets. And between them you can see the upper shock mount pocket. The Upper and lower control arms, and the knuckle are cast aluminum or magnesium and machined to a specific dimension. And when they are assembled together with the cradle and the upper frame rail, they form the desired geometry for the corvette. And this design and assembly method is so good, rarely after assembly is extensive alignment required.
Yes, the bonding epoxy can be broken off, but I'm sure it won't be a lot of fun.
