Corvette Suspension

by Mell


When you lower a C5 (mine is lowered about 5/8") you are really supposed to put on new shock absorbers that are made for your selected ride height. Mallett offers an adjustable Penske Shock that has a separate canister to help keep the main shock body cooler.

Rear Penske and the new Hotchkis end link.

Hotchkis makes a good front and back sway bar kit. You have to make sure you install it correctly.

This is what the Hotchkis kit looks like.

Here is the rear bar installed. Click here for a bigger image.
