Global West Suspension
Brief DescriptionGlobal West manufactures several components for Corvettes. We are the original designers of Del-a-lum bushings, which are a direct replacement on the stock control arms and carry a lifetime warranty for the original owner. We use these bushings for street, road-racing, drag-racing, and autocross applications.
We also have tubular control arms for '63-'82 Corvettes, which improve the original geometry. These arms provide additional caster, dramatically enhancing corner-entry and straight-line stability. Tubular rear swing arms and adjustable strut rods are also available, rounding out the suspension system. These arms accept the standard hub assemblies and mounting tabs. Our race-version rear swing arm uses a spherical bearing, rather than a bushing, for mounting on the frame. The bearing removes swing-arm bind from the equation, making chassis diagnosis easier.
Our features include the original, U.S.-made Del-a-lum bushing; a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser; and full lubrication, so there are no squeaks. Our G-Plus (Geometry Plus) control arms change your Corvette's suspension geometry without modifying the frame. The angles and new alignment settings are derived from years of building and setting up race cars. Each control arm features a bumpstop to protect the ball joints from over-travel, gussets at load-carrying points, heli-arc welding at critical points, proper-size tubing for carrying extreme loads, and a powdercoat finish for long-lasting protection. Del-a-lum bushings are standard.

Hotchkis offers Sport Sway Bar kits for the C5 and C6 Corvette. These high-strength, lightweight, hollow-tube, adjustable bars offer dramatically improved cornering potential, chassis balance, and steering response; give exceptional handling improvements for street driving; and work extremely well in autocross, road course, and open-road racing applications. Our sway-bar packages reduce body roll, increase vehicle control, and add a new level of driver feedback and control to any late-model Corvette, even razor-sharp Z06 and Z51 models.
Our sway bars feature lightweight, durable, 1.25-inch tubular-steel construction up front (offering 115 percent more stiffness than the Z51 units); lightweight, durable, 1-inch adjustable, tubular-steel construction in the rear; factory-style, oil-impregnated rubber bushings; a gloss-black powdercoated finish; and greaseable metal endlinks.
Quote From Company:
"The latest C5, C6, and Z06 Corvettes are some of the fastest track-ready vehicles ever produced. However, there's always room for improvement. Through extensive track testing, we've come up with a series of adjustable Sport Sway Bars that improve driver control, lateral traction, and overall feel."
