I would talk to Pfadt. I think you will want their other swaybars. Drive it a while how it sits and if it's doing something you don't like, then think about new sways.

Since you took off the springs, you may want to go
stiffer...

I would go with the Light Rate Sway Bars if you have
the Coil Overs.

Me too, minus the alignment...

but a shop will want 2+ hrs of shop time...

Anyone who has not done shocks before will certainly
take more than an hour or so...

Just placed my order for the stage 1. So an alignment is suggested with this? I hope this will make my launches better on the street.

Tks Stephen,

I would get an alignment.

It should nail down your rear end a lot and help your launches

Sorry for this question, I know will sound extremely newbish to most of you gear head savants. I am trying to learn though, so I am going to ask. With magnetic ride control what more can you really do with the suspension on a 2013 GS with MR to make it better? I would assume it would be foolish to swap out the magnetic ride unelss you were extremely serious about tracking the car.

My suggestion, and we get this question all the time, would
be to add a set of good sway bars and poly bushings.

For street use the JOC Sways are a huge improvement over stock

http://www.customcorvetteaccessories...yoconnell.html


For the track, where the extreme forces of repeated brake dive or
nose over, you will want the light rate racing sway bars

http://www.customcorvetteaccessories...lightrate.html

I have had both.

For a car that will see full pace track time, the light rate sways are
the way to go, for a car that will see mostly street time with the
occasional trip to the track, the JOC sways are plenty good.


Peace
Chip
