    Ive always maintained the first thing you purchase after buying any corvette is the correct matching years,
    shop manual, and if you are not willing to do the VAST MAJORITY of the work on the car yourself,
    you damn well better have deep financial pockets,
    and be a masochist, nympho ,
    because your about to get screwed regularly.
    owning the basic related tools to work on your corvette,
    yourself and learning the skills required to do so,

    or
    a mind numbing willingness to finance, and write blank checks for all the local shop management and technician vacations,
    for as long as you own the car, is nearly mandatory

    if you paid $4913 for a clutch REPLACEMENT ON A CAR YOU JUST PURCHASED ... YOUR OBVIOUSLY NOT HURTING FINANCIALLY.
    I KNOW VERY FEW PEOPLE THAT COULD DO THAT

    There has only been 1 guy I know of Grumpy has changed out Removed, Rebuilt himself , reinstalled, and successful drag raced into The 10's The Engine, M6 T56 Trans , and Rear Differential in a Torque Tube Corvette all without a 2-post car lift used at all.
    Hardcore in his C5 Corvette.
    They are just about impossible for most to do without a car lift used.
    All on the ground.

    C4 Was the Last Gen Corvette easy to work on without a Car Lift underside.
    Just 4 jackstands.
