Many improvements are possible on GM’s original suspension design for the C2 and C3 Corvette. Speed Direct has re-engineered a basic rear suspension element on this great car. In taking cues from the racing segment, we have developed a coil over solution that replaces the original transverse leaf spring. Our design incorporates a rocker arm coupled to the existing trailing arm through spherical joints. The rocker arm incorporates an advanced composite Teflon bearing that is extremely rugged requiring no lubrication over its lifetime. On the other end of the rocker is a coil-over shock assembly in which the owner can adjust both shock valving and ride height. This allows maximum flexibility in custom settings to tune the handling balance to the driver’s preference.
This unique kit provides a significant improvement over the stock leaf spring and gives the adjustability that you are looking for. With the Shark Bite rear coil over suspension kit, the rear suspension is truly independent – no connection between the left and right side of the car, In addition, this product is completely bolt on! In addition, this product is completely bolt on! We know many Corvette owners want to keep the option to return to stock, yet want to be able to take advantage of something as revolutionary as Shark Bite technology. Kits work with many aftermarket components like offset trailing arms.
