Performance Shock's new Ohlins TTX based suspension system for the Corvette C5 and C6 chassis. This kit is built using Ohlins TTX36 dampers which are based upon the tremendously successful TTX40 damper design that captured top results in the LeMans, ChampCar, WTCC series etc. It features a twin tube design providing positive pressure build-up and has proven itself far superior to conventional techniques used in other racing dampers. Low internal friction, vast adjustment range and responsiveness even at the smallest strokes are amongst its virtues. The standard configuration is 2-way adjustable; 1-way compression and 1-way rebound (both low speed), but is easily upgradeable to 3 or even 4-way adjustable. The top eye can easily be re-clocked without opening the damper. No longer is the balancing of reservoir damping ("can stack") to main piston damping required to avoid cavitation. With no reservoir valve, the internal pressure of the damper unit will be kept to a minimum. The low amount of hysteresis results in excellent short stroke/high force performance. The Ohlins TTX range of shocks require very low gas pressure which considerably improves grip without any loss of damping performance. This is by far one of the best suspension packages that you can install on your Corvette, period!
