Corvette C5 Suspension and Steering

1997-2004 C5 Corvette Suspension

Shocks, Struts, Sway Bars, and other Suspension Components for the C5 Corvette

With the C5 Corvette putting down 300+HP, and 400+ in the Z06, it can sometimes seem like a chore to keep those wheels on the track. Twisty road configurations, tight track lay-outs, and extreme driving can be treacherous and terrifying (but, let's be honest, also exciting). If you want to get the most from your Corvette and really improve your track times, a suspension upgrade is a necessity. Complete suspension kits, as well as individual components like Pfadt's Inverted Shocks, Sway Bars, and Chassis Stiffening bars, offer cuts to body roll and boosts to performance. By upgrading your suspension and steering components, you can improve your Corvette ride and make your car feel like it's on-rails--even when you're putting the pedal to the floor and letting all of that small-block American V8 power really scream. Get the most of your Corvette, on the road and track, by upgrading its suspension today!

Corvette Suspension

We at Southern Car Parts pride ourselves on our catalog filled with products from the greatest manufacturers working today, and we offer all the suspension upgrades needed to make your Corvette perform like it is "on rails". We are master distributors of PFADT Corvette products, so you can always expect the best prices available from them and all of our other manufacturers. Whether you want Corvette Sway Bars, Corvette Shocks, Corvette Struts, Corvette End Links, Corvette Bushings, or any other Corvette suspension component we can get it for you and will offer it at the best prices anywhere.

Corvette Sway Bars - Corvette Shocks

The true mark of a great track car is the way that it handles. Weight, drag, and suspension components all factor in to vehicle handling just as much as wheelbase and stance, and upgraded suspension components will help make the vehicle handle greater around turns as well as help the driver shave pounds off of their Corvette's curb weight. A Corvette equipped with upgraded shocks, like the PFADT Corvette Inverted FeatherLight Shocks, or an improved Adjustable Corvette Sway Bar set, will have an advantage over all others on the track. Upgraded suspension components also often times offer greater degrees of suspension adjustability and customization to help the driver ensure their suspensions set-up is perfectly suited and ideal for their track layout and needs.

  • Corvette Tunnel Plate "ABS of Steel"

    Corvette Tunnel Plate "ABS of Steel"

    $229.00
    Improve the ride and performance of your C5,C6 and Z06 Corvettes! Since its release, the redesigned Tunnel Reinforcement Plate has been one of the hottest suspension mods for the C5 and C6 Corvette. Installed on both the C5R and C6R Race Corvettes, it has been proven over and over again to reduce the amount of torsional flex in the chassis. In addition, our ceramic coating adds another benefit by offering some heat shielding from your exhaust system. The engineers at General Motors acknowledged the benefits of a stiffer more rigid Tunnel Reinforcement Plate and improved their original design and incorporated something similar into the new C6. The "Abs-of-Aluminum" is a direct replacement for your stock OEM tunnel reenforcement plate and bolts in place using the existing hardware. Installation is very simple and instructions are included. Other benefits include: - Rigidly ties the right and left inner chassis rails together - A must for Coupes and Convertibles! - Direct, bolt-on replacement - Greater sense of control behind the wheel when cornering - Reduced squeaks, creaks and noises while driving - Significantly decreases the heat transferred to the interior console - Sound deadening qualities All plates can easily be installed by a first-timer in about 2.5 hours with a set of Jack Stands or Rhino Ramps. Does your console get HOT? Check out our "Thermal-Abs" In addition to ceramic coating our Tunnel Plates we have a "new" product that greatly reduces the amount of heat transfer into your console area from your exhaust.  Our new heat-shielding product is appropriately named "Thermal-Abs". It consists of our standard ceramic coated tunnel plates bonded with a composite fiberglass thermal barrier. The results are very impressive. You get the best of both worlds; the stiffening effects of our Tunnel Reinforcement Plate and the Heat Shielding effects of the "new" Thermal-Abs. Average temerature reduction with the Thermal Abs was 130 degrees F. Now available with our "Thermal-Abs" Heat shielding as an added option. Picture below compares the stock tunnel plate with the "Abs of steel" tunnel plate.   Installation Instuctions are located below Corvette Tunnel plate installation instructions

  • Corvette C5/C6 aFe Control Coilovers

    Corvette C5/C6 aFe Control Coilovers

    $2,495.95
    Free Shipping
    aFe Control is proud to release the PFADT Series, Featherlight Adjustable Coilover System for the C5/C6 C5/C6 Corvette. Designed as a complete solution the Featherlight Coilovers will allow you to remove the transverse leaf springs and OE shocks on your Corvette yielding a true independent suspension which eliminates the “crosstalk” and harsh ride that the OEM suspension is known for. Both ride height and damping are easily adjustable in this design allowing for fine tuning your Corvette’s stance and ride quality. Packed with features, the coilovers are precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum hard anodized. The mono-tube construction utilizes a floating piston to separate the oil and nitrogen gas, allowing for predictable handling and a consistent feel. The CIRC (Concentric Integrated Remote Canister) System more than triples the gas volume over a standard coilover resulting in consistent operation over a wide temperature range and throughout the stroke. Integrated into the CIRC head, is the BOA (Ball on Axis) upper mount, which is a completely sealed design allowing full articulation of the Corvettes suspension and offers a durable quiet mounting solution without travel loss as is common in other clevis style mounting systems. The inverted design places the majority of the mass on the sprung side of the chassis allowing the control arms and outboard components to react quicker and easier without the additional weight of the coilover itself. The result is a suspension system that responds faster to changes in the road whether its highway, local roads, or track surfaces. This design also allows the placement of the damping adjuster on the bottom of the shock, allowing for quick easy adjustment. Since the coilovers employ double digressive valve technology, the easy touch rotary knob will adjust both compression and rebound in one device. You will feel 24 distinct settings on the front and rear shocks allowing for settings to accommodate comfortable street, all the way up to track settings. We even offer a specially tuned version for Drag race set ups. Elevate your driving experience with the comfort, precision, and excitement of aFe Control PFADT Series Featherlight Adjustable Coilovers. Features: • Featherlight coilovers are ride height adjustable, as well as damping adjustable for rebound and compression  • Lightweight, Hard Anodized 6061-T6 Aluminum bodies, yield high strength, while still maintaining a lightweight design  • Mono-Tube construction utilizes an internal floating piston to separate oil and gas allowing for more predictable handling, and a consistent feel  • BOA (Ball on Axis) upper mount system is a completely sealed mono-ball design that allows articulation required for the Corvette suspension resulting in a better ride, and quiet operation
