Chevrolet Corvette Performance Parts: Your Ultimate Suspension Upgrade
The Chevrolet Corvette has been an icon of American performance since 1953. This sports car, continuously produced for over six decades, embodies innovation and power....
Over the years, one element that has remained constant is its unique suspension system. But as the Corvette evolved, so did the need for advanced suspension technology – enter the Chevrolet Corvette coilovers.
Understanding Corvette Coilovers
The Corvette used a transverse leaf spring suspension up until the seventh generation. However, Chevrolet decided to transition to coilovers from the C8 platform onwards in 2020. This was not just a change; it was an upgrade. Unlike the limited adjustability of the previous system, coilovers provide much more flexibility.
With Corvette coilovers, you can adjust your overall stance, level out the car front and rear, and eliminate the infamous "Chevy lean". If performance is your goal, coilovers also allow you to corner balance your car.
C5 Corvette Coilovers and C6 Corvette Coilovers
While the C5 and C6 Corvettes do offer ride height adjustment from the factory, it's limited to about an inch overall. With our QA1 coilovers for C5 and C6 Corvettes, you can drop a base model car up to 2” and a Z06 up to 1.5”.
This extra range lowers your car’s center of gravity, therefore improving handling on the track and during backroad adventures. It also lets you achieve the stance you want for a more aggressive look.
Corvette Suspension Upgrade: A Truly Independent Suspension
Switching to coilovers doesn't only give your Corvette a sleek look; it also enhances its suspension system.
The original four-wheel independent suspension of the C5 and C6 Corvettes was semi-independent, as loads were transferred from one wheel to another through the leaf spring. But with Corvette coilovers, each of the four wheels has its spring, creating a truly independent suspension.
This means each corner can react without directly affecting the opposing wheel, making it less likely you'll upset the chassis – a crucial factor when hitting rumble strips or curbs during cornering.
