    HSV VF GTS Rear Cradle

    I'm hoping some one will be able to ***ist me.
    with two bits of information
    I need a dimension, from the centre line of the pivot / adjustment bolt of the lower rear control arm to ground, at ride height, standard factory suspension HSV edition .
    Also
    Would anyone know what angle the axles sit at, at stock ride height

    The cradle I'm working with has the AAM 250mm differential .
    and ***istance is appreciated.

    What I’m trying to achieve, is a better handling C3 Corvette
    I’m hoping some members here will have the technical info behind the cars they drive.

    I’m fitting this multi link to a C3 Corvette ch***is . I purchased two cradles one of I narrowed 100mm .
    I need to know the stock height of the cradle to work out the angle of the drive shafts in the stock application . As well as the angle the bottom control arm in the stock application.
    I have a drawing of a Ve frame that gives me the mountings points for the cradle , the drawing however references a datum but not ground.

    Ideally the axles should be close to level at ride height with the diff centre line slightly behind the wheel centre line.
    It appears this is not the case in the vf gts/ Camaro set up.
    This may be result of fitting the 250mm AAM diff centre . However I can’t see GM mounting the diff centre so low in relation to the wheel centre with out good reason.

    First I need the cradle correctly positioned in the c3 frame
