Ok so what gives.... I find there is no rear motor or trans mount on an 89 Corvette... Is the torque arm supposed to serve that function? We are installing 56 265 and will use the front mount holes on the engine but what of the rear? How do you fix that? maybe a chain between the floor boards..lol the tranny sticks out there like a cigar and then they hung the exhaust on it... oh my... thanks Doug

thank u thank u.... so there is a need to make a crossmember of sorts and attach it at the front of the torque arm where it attaches to the tranny.. and of course the torque arm is the rear mount of sorts in the factory version of the c4... ouch amazing.... do u think bolting the member to the floorboards or or

THERE'S THE REAR,IF THATS WHAT YOUR GONA USE.YOU CAN SEE ON THE LEFT WHERE THE BEAM BOLTS TO.THAT MAKES THE TRANS & REAR SOLID,SO NO CROSS MEMBERS ARE NEEDED. THE TOP OF THE REAR IS THE "BAT WING"
THAT HAS TO BE ADAPTED TO YOUR FRAME IN THE REAR.
THEN THE FRONT LINKS TO THE FRAME ALSO.NOTHING SHOULD BE BOLTED TO THE FLOOR BOARDS.
THERES FABRICATED BRACES THAT THE BATWING IS BOLTED BETWEEN

yes I know of the independent suspension rear ends and how the pumpkin is attached to the frame of the car solid, with the axles floating. so there is a pretty good attachment pt being the rear end pumpkin.... it just seems like a bit of a stretch using the torque arm to hold up the rear end of the trans/engine....

THE C'4'S ARE A TOTALLY REDESIGNED ANIMAL & THERE'S A LOT OF EM OUT THERE.THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER OVER 2FT LONG & Y PIPES FRONT & REAR ARE ALSO ATTACHED TO THAT BEAM.EVERYTHING IS TUCKED UP IN THE "TUNNEL" BETWEEN THE SEATS & NOTHING HANGS BELOW THE SEAT WELL'S. IN ALL MY YEARS I NEVER HEARD OF A "BEAM" FAILURE.ON MY 93 DROP TOP THERE'S A "X" BRACE UNDER THERE WITCH TAKES AWAY SOME GROUND CLEARANCE.I CANT DRIVE THAT THRU TOWN BECAUSE OF THE SPEED BUMPS.AS THE SAYING GOES "IT IS WHAT IT IS"
