I wish I could. They were on the car when I bought it. They bolt to the axles and have their own studs for the lugnuts. They are 1" thick.

I just did this but used the spacers for the rear and also a 1/4" spacer for the front. They fit perfectly.

They weren't chrome. They were the OEM silver color. I stripped them with Aircraft stripper. That helped but then used a sanding wheel on my drill. Pretty easy but time consuming.

I just did mine with a precut kit. It didn't reduce the noise much but the tunnel heat was reduced greatly. I used spray adhesive amd 3M reflective tape for the seams.

If you are asking of C6 shocks bolting up to a C5 then yes they are a direct fit. I along with many others run C6 Z06 shocks and C6 Z51 swaybars and it was a nice improvement.
