    Default rear suspension diagram

    Where can I find a diagram for the rear suspension for a 1996 vette? I went to install a new hub ass'y. and there appeared to be part of a seal dangling in the opening where the spline enters the housing. I have a copy from the chevy dealer and there seems to be a seal/washer (item 48) that locates on the spline prior to entering the housing and the hub ass'y. I tried to locate a diagram on the web, but I didn't have any luck. I'm new to computers/internet and may not have enterd the right info. So any help that you could supply wopuld be greatly appreciated. Thanks, MiMitch

    The AC/Delco hubs have a seal pressed into the rear of the hub. I understand that some aftermarket hubs do not have this seal.

    Thanks for all the help. My computer took a dump shortly after asking for info on my rear suspension proplem, so it took me awhile to respond. Thanks again to all that replied, MiMitch

    Punch in your year and model and go to suspention/steering.
    The rear hub has a view button that shows an exploded view of all the parts.
