The New Corvette system offers many advantages over the OEM suspension system … The engineers have put their heart and soul into fabricating a complete suspension design that is a direct bolt in to the c2 corvettes. Up front the task was to increase camber gain and minimize bump steer.
By utilizing the Ridetech “tall drop” spindle and tubular StrongArm control arms with Delrin bushings the ride height was lowered two inches, camber gain was increased to match the requirements of modern tires, the ball joints were updated to a modern style and relocated for increased caster and the correct angle for the lower stance, while the self lubricating Delrin bushings keep things where they should be without required maintenance.
The TruTurn system reduces bumpsteer to under 0.060” and increases steering response by relocating the inner tie rods and replacing the outer tie rods with Teflon lined heim joints. New billet aluminum steering arms are supplied that correct the ackerman which results in a vehicle with amazing turn in and steering feel. StrongArm tubular control arms not only improve suspension geometry and handling, they also make installation even easier. The added benefit when replacing control arms is new bushings and ball joints. No more worn out components.
