Got Her In for a Suspension Revamp

Just dropped the Holden off at Corvette suspension guru Guldstrand Motorsports for the install of the F&R Yellow Konis, Hotchkis bars, and full poly bushing suite including Pedders caster bushings...

Oh, man- I can't frikkin' wait!

Okay, I guess I'll ask. Why? Better ride? or looks or what. Just curious.

Looks will not change. What Mike said-- I want a tighter car, sharper steering, better handling, a flatter attitude during hard acceleration.

This car is too much of a boat off the showroom floor, and has far too much of a dead band in the steering...after 52k miles, the boatiness as regressed to supertankerness.

Hopefully, by tomorrow I'll have a car that doesn't scare the crap out of me when powering out of a tight curve during my occasional canyon-carving exercizes...
