VETTE's Official Guide To Corvette Suspension Kits And Components

As good as the C5 Z06 suspension is from the factory, there's always room for improvement. Be sure to balance track grip against on-road comfort when making your selections.

Part 2: Manufacturers K-V
in our last issue, we brought you a plethora of manufacturers promising to improve your Corvette's ride and handling with the latest in shocks, springs, control arms, antisway bars, and bushings. This month, we bring you another sampling of suspension specialists, each one ready to provide you with the mods you need to enhance the agility of your Corvette.

Because choosing the right suspension parts is a largely subjective endeavor, we didn't favor one of these manufacturers over the others. Instead, we listed them all (half last month and half this month) and allowed them to state their case. All that's left is for you to decide is which one's right for your Corvette.

Brief Description
LG Motorsports takes its 35-plus years of racing experience and passes it along to you, with track-ready suspension upgrades for your C5 or C6 Corvette. Coilover suspensions, drop spindles, monoball lower control arms, and quiet endlinks are available.

Trademark Features
Our coilovers use an aluminum-bodied Bilstein shock with custom valving. [They also use] Hyperco springs, the same company that supplies race springs to F1 and IndyCar teams. Our billet-aluminum drop spindles lower your Corvette 1 inch, and our monoball lower control arms offer precise control with no bushing deflection.

Quote From Company
"LG Motorsports' coilover package for the C5 and C6 Corvette was developed on the racetrack by Lou Gigliotti in conjunction with the highly skilled engineers from Bilstein. We at LG Motorsports have nurtured our racing contacts to be able to carry that technology into the street products that we build."
