Damage to the C5 Corvette front skid plate & radiator support cradle is a very common problem. They are very susceptible to dents, cracks, and scrapes from running into parking lot stops and curbs. If the damage is serious enough your C5 Corvettes radiator could be dislodged, creating havoc with cooling issues. If you have had a front end collision then you certainly must replace this item when rebuilding your Corvette's front end.

Our new reproduction 1997-2004 Corvette front skid plate & radiator support cradle bolts to the front frame extensions allowing you to return your C5 Corvette to its factory condition. Features steel tube construction, professional welds and mounts.

Each skid plate & cradle includes the correct small and large hex head rivet nuts for installing to your Corvettes frame assembly. These hex head nuts are typically only available through GM where you will pay approximately $7 a nut. Without these nuts you would have to install a generic round head nut that requires a special tool to install. The correct nuts are included with a new support cradle or separately if needed.

One way that you can help prevent your Corvette skid plate/radiator support cradle from being damaged is to install some of our C5 Corvette skid plate stiffeners and/or our C5 Corvette front bumper skid rollers. Our skid plate stiffeners install easily in 15 minutes and will save your Corvette from damage often cause by parking stops and curbs. Our front bumper skid rollers take about an hour to install. They feature an active skid plate design with proprietary integrated urethane wheels that will eliminate costly front-end damage caused by lowering, steep driveways or other obstacles.
