    Lots of options- take a look at Vette Brakes & Products website- they have several different rate springs depending on your car's options and then your intended usage. If you have a steel spring now, there are still a couple of shops around KC that can rebuild yours too.
    I've heard the composite springs ride a little better but I don't have any first hand info= I've still got the original spring in mine.
    Great to hear from you- Tim

    Tim - I'm looking to replace the rear spring in the car. Any suggestions? I don;t want to run into the issue of having the height in the rear look stupid like many experience. Is there a particular mfr/brand that will keep the ride height at factory setting as if new? it is a '76.

    thanks!

    Hey Tim - Hope all is well and the holidays were good. Quick question - I know the Vetter is due for some wheel bearing work - not sure much has ever been done.... do you have the tools to help - are you interested - I can obviously come your way this time. No rush - figured it might be a good spring project when it actually warms up.

    Tim - just send me a message here after you get your list of stuff done while in town. I don't want to intrude in any way on your time here!!!! I am leaving for a short vaca next Friday thru Monday but will do whatever I need to in order to time it at your convenience as best I can!!! I think part of the issue may be associated with moisture in getting into the distributor - car cut out on me yesterday - heavy rain here, but fired right up today and ran fine. Cap and Rotor are supposed to be here today. Looking forward to meeting you and to hopefully a short day of troubleshooting

    Good looking '69! As I mentioned at Lucky's, I am currently Vette-less. Don't know if I will be getting another C3 or not.
    Here are the addresses for two pictures of my Vettes through the years.

    Thanks for the dinner. Give me a jingle the next time you are in the area.

    I just replaced the dash wiring harness and was gonna start it and check things out before I put the door panels and dash on. Alt, battery, and ignition switch all show 12 volts but it won't really begin to crank. As I stated in earlier post one of the red wires is now in a different spot on ignition switch than original. Could that be it??
