Well finally decided to get the suspenion underway and ordered a set of C6 Z06 shocks for the car.
I got a great price $236 plus shipping from a US company and with the dollar at almost par was a deal
that I could not refuse to jump on.

C6 Z06 shocks direct replacement for C5's.
10313647 - Front Shock
25819268 - Rear Shock

Anyways still have to get a good pair of swabars front and rear along with ditching those plastic :eek:
end links which I have already replaced a broken one last year that Manny spotted when on the lift.

I will let you all know how the new Z shocks feel and handle when installed, road trip to Manny's again :D

And the mods continue..........

Well Manny got the shocks installed this morning along with a spring oil change and I am very happy at the difference.
The car handles more flat then with the old Z51 shocks and if you push it a bit in the corners you do not get that
lean that I used to have, in all a great cheap performance mod on a C5.
I am very impressed with the performance on the 08 Z06 shocks and for the price at just under $300 its a great mod.
Next is a pair of swaybars for the front and rear with some good bushings and metal endlinks to replace those plastic ones.
Thanks again Manny!
