During the 1984 model year, a change was made to the length of the rear hatch window assist rods on 1984 Corvettes. The early style rods were 935mm (36 13/16") long and the later style rods are 853mm (33 5/8") long.
The short version assist rod is the only part available through the G.M. Warehousing Division.
If replacement of a rear hatch window assist rod becomes necessary, the technician should measure the rod length to determine which style is on the vehicle. If the vehicle is equipped with the longer version, and the assist rod requires replacement, BOTH rods must be replaced.
