Default C6 Suspension upgrade

GT2 coil over and G1 Sway bar package, I thinking about this coil over kit. I like to know if anybody install one on a C6 base?

If you are asking if it will work, yes it will. It will greatly improve handling at the cost of ride quality. I didn't have the GT2 but had the Pfadt Featherlight coilovers on my 2005. I loved the way it handled. I could push my C6 through corners hard and it took it. The only part I didn't like was the ride quality. I felt every little crack on the road. If you like to take your corvette to the track you will be happy. But if you live in an area with not so good roads, you might not be very happy.

Thanks for the info. I’m a daily driver, so I’m going to stick with shocks. What about switching out the C6 base shocks & sway bars. Thinking about Z06 shocks & sway bars.

Probably a good decision.

I have been tempted to go with coil overs many times over the years. But this is the sticky point I cannot accept, the poor ride quality.

I received better handling with the FSD's shocks by Koni and going with the Z51 sways. And still kept my ride quality.

The stock suspension on the "Base" is horrid for a powerful sports car like the C6.
