StreetGrip suspension for C2, C3 Corvettes offered by Ridetech

Bolt-on kits ‘transform’ ride and handling


“Corvettes from the ’60s and ’70s are notorious for ‘sagging’ suspensions, rough riding and difficult-to-manage handling,” says Indiana-based suspension specialist Ridetech as it releases its latest Ridetech StreetGrip Suspension System, this one designed for C2 and C3 Chevrolet sports cars produced between 1963 and 1982.

The complete kits are $2,040, with separate parts numbers for the C2 and C3 generations of Corvette.

The kits are bolt-on and “totally transform the ride and handling of these beautiful vintage rides,” the company promises.

The kits include Ridetech adjustable, aluminum, mono-tube shocks with Fox technology tuned to the specific vehicle generation. Also included are Hyperco dual-rate front springs that provide a soft ride at slower speeds but stiffen under higher dynamic conditions.

Included as well are front Delrin bushings for the control arms and a stronger front sway bar and Hyperco rear composite leaf springs that reduce weight by more than 30 points, as well as spacers to adjust ride height.

The new front springs lower ride height from the factory setup, but spring spacers are offered if you want to keep the car at factory height.
