Ok, i got more info from Wayne Due-
The kit is $500, and includes all the brackets needed to weld in a IRS into the first gens. You don't need to narrow the rear if you use 88 and lower. Not bad for a kick *** rear suspension setup.

so all i would need to make the ultimate Nova cruiser bruiser would be his front subframe, IRS mounting kit, and a wrecked Vette that has all good suspension parts? no problem...

just curious, why do you guys want corvette IRS suspensions?
They're supposed to be pretty weak and the replacement parts cost a furtune. We're going through this with my brother's vette, rebuilding his rear would cost more then converting to a brand new Ford 9" with a new aluminum 3rd member, daytona pinion, gears, trac lock and strange axles.

Is the ride quaility really nice or something?
