It's a beautiful piece, and with the purchase of the lift they supply you with 4 large, rubber blocks 6" x 4" x 2.5", that just happen to be the exact size that is needed for a Corvette frame. When you place the block's at each end of the frame, it lift's the car just high enough off the side lift plates, that the frames center cross member, does not come in contact with the lift. Also, when using these small block's ( you could make your own a little higher if need be ), there is absolutuly no part of the chassis, or suspension that comes anywhere near, to coming in contact with any of the parts of the lift. Had I asked to have them custom made, they couldn't have been any better.
Pseudomind, I am not familiar with the C5 or C6, so I could not comment on the lifting points needed for those platforms. One thing I can tell you is that there is no movable arms used on this lift. It lifts any vehicle by supporting it along the side frame rails. If you can lift the C5 or C6 on the side rails, then this could be the ticket. Hope this helps
