aFe Power is proud to introduce another addition to the aFe Control suspension line: Johnny O’Connell Signature Series Stage 2 Suspension package for the 1997-2013 Chevrolet Corvette C5/C6.
These sway bars and coilovers are direct bolt-on solutions for your Corvette and are tuned by Johnny O’Connell to the exact specifications needed for a perfect balance between performance and smooth ride.
This sway bar set is made of 4130 chromoly steel, CNC bent and powder-coated yellow. The front bar is 35mm and the rear is 29mm, which features 3-way adjustability.
Also Included are heavy duty ½” rod end links with CNC machined articulating spacers, grade 8 hardware and vehicle specific polyurethane bushings designed to perfectly fit stock brackets.
Designed as a complete solution, the Johnny O’Connell Black Series coilovers will allow you to remove the transverse leaf springs and OE shocks on your Corvette yielding a true independent suspension, which eliminates the “crosstalk” and harsh ride that the OEM suspension is known for.
Packed with features, the coilovers are precision CNC machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum, and hard anodized for strength and durability.
The mono-tube construction utilizes a floating piston to separate the oil and nitrogen gas, allowing for predictable handling and a consistent feel. The CIRC (Concentric Integrated Remote Canister) System more than triples the gas volume over a standard coilover resulting in consistent operation over a wide temperature range and throughout the stroke. Integrated into the CIRC head is the BOA (Ball on Axis) upper mount, which is a completely sealed design allowing full articulation of the Corvettes suspension, and offers a durable, quiet mounting solution without travel loss as is common in other clevis style mounting systems.
