A big again thanks to our friend Paul Koerner for his Corvette service videos he has been posting to his facebook page, TheCorvetteMechanic. We hope you’ve enjoyed this series and let us know if you would like to see more of this kind of content.
Here’s the project as we’ve been posting them:
- Day 1 – Visual inspection of the C5’s drivetrain.
- Day 2 – The transmission and differential was removed for a closer inspection.
- Day 3 – Paul goes through the disassembled differential.
- Day 4 – The disassembled transmission is cleaned and inspected.
- Day 5 – The drivetrain has been cleaned up and reinstalled into the C5 Corvette.
On the final day of the project, Paul does a four wheel alignment on the 1999 Corvette and shows us the camber settings before doing the actual alignment. Paul says it is important to get everything torqued down correctly before the tires hit the ground because with the weight of the vehicle you do not torque or twist the suspension bushings and tear them.

Final step: wheel alignment is critical to overall suspension life, ride quality and handling for Corvette
