If you need offset mounts to complete your build, send me a PM. That also goes for stock tranny and motor mounts.

I've got plenty in stock for you.

Anyone use the 2009+ cradle with C5 arms? Wheel are offset back quite a bit. Does the 2005-2008 cradle with C5 arms put the wheel exactly back in center of wheel well?

Correction: I misread your post.

I've not compared any cradles to any others. I guess that I got lucky when I purchased a 2008 cradle for my setup. Using C6 arms with the 08 cradle, my wheels are farther back than stock, but not by that much.

In my picture I am using the newer 2009+ cradle/crossmember. I am using my stock C5 upper and lower control arms with LG G2 coilovers.

I think the mounting location is set back more with the 2009+ cradle vs the 2005-2008??

mine looks about the same as yours and I'm using the older cradle with 2 slots on each side, c5 arms, and lg gt2 coilovers... it appears slightly moved towards the rear compared to when it was stock but not as much as the 6060 swaps I have seen that are using c6 arms

Thebonly way to put the wheel to the fron is to use eccentric bolts for the top a-arms. When you fix the camber with front bolt it will bring it back to the front.

The only way you need to worry about your rear end is if you have broken clutch springs (which I see every time I take a stock differential apart) or if you wheel hop.

Hard launches OK at the track as long as I don't wheel hop?

Hard launches are fine. Wheel hop will kill anything. Even 300m.
