LG C5 G2 Coilover Kit
Bilstein is at the top of the heap in shock technology world wide. Their nitrogen filled separate chamber technology has been the standard of the shock industry for years. It was only a short time ago that the technology was allowed to be duplicated. We have used these Aluminum Body Bilstein Shocks as the core of our Coil Over package for years now. The valving was dialed in by Lou and Bilstein shock engineers on the track and on the street. We Built valving for street cars and for the race car. Of course most of you know the success that we had on track with the Bilstein/LG Coil Over package, winning races against some tough teams and drivers. Here are some questions that you should ask when getting any Coil over package: 1. What material is the shock made of? Is is heavy steel or aluminum? 2. Is it Gas filled with a separate gas chamber? Because if it is not separate, the shock oil will trap air bubbles and reduce and change the effectiveness of the shock with each stroke of the shock. 3. What Brand of spring is being used? Eibach, Hypercoil or some off brand with no name. The no name springs will sag and take a set. 4. Does the shock length cause it to bottom out when it is loaded in a corner? We took the time to have Bilstein build our LG Shock to our custom length so there is no chance of the shock bottoming under loading. If a shock bottoms, the effective spring rate goes to infinity and the tire is now the only "shock" absorber in the suspension. Obviously this is not a good thing. 5. Adjustability? Adjustable shocks are for either full blown race cars or for companies producing a generalized package for the Corvette platform. Our Shock/Spring package was developed by Lou in conjunction with the highly skilled engineers from Bilstein, at the racetrack, not on a computer. Over the past 15 years we have taken that series C to something fitting of the times. Be sure to call with vehicle set up when you order, we don’t just take them off the shelf and ship. Every kit is valved, verified on the shock dyno, assembled and sprung in house specific to your car not just your year model.
