Silver's Suspension Frequently Asked Corvette Questions:
Q: I do a little bit of track work and mostly street, what rates should I go with?
A: We suggest the standard 12k Front, 8k Rear setup for most builds.
Q: I do more track work than an occasional track day, either drag or Auto X, what rates should I go with?
A: We suggest the stiffer in the rear setup here, 12k Front, 10k Rear.
Q: I make big power and run sticky tires / slicks / drag radial but don't go to the track, what rates should I go with?
A: Drag Setup in either standard drag or extreme +1000whp with the valving mod.
Q: Should I upgrade my sway bars at the same time?
A: We suggest you try the coilovers out first before changing out your sways. The reason is the shocks are digresively valved which will make the car feel like there are fatter sway bars underneath you.
Q: What happens if there is a warranty issue, does the coilover get repaired.
A: In most cases, Silver's would just replace the part. It's faster and more cost effective to take care of the customer with a new part vs. going through the ship, inspect, repair process.
Q: What if it's after warranty and I need to replace a shock?
A: You can purchase replacement shock bodies individually.
Q: Why have I never heard of Silver's Suspension before?
A: Silver's has been operating since 1999 and is only in their 1st year (as of 2018) in the United States. For more back-story on Silver's be sure to check out the video's below.
Q: Do I have to drill anything.
A: Yes, put your big boy/girl pants on, it's just a 1/4" hole for the remote rear adjuster. Don't worry, you won't be drilling through or around anything vital like wiring or fuel lines etc...
Q: What about people telling me to corner balance the car to select spring rates
A: Yes, you can go through all the motions of putting time in and figuring out what spring rates to use on your own. Or, you can simply tell us what you plan on doing with the car, what kind of tires you are running (drag applications) and what kind of power you are making and we can suggest something appropriate based on not only in-house testing (we did a lot) as well as dozens of customer feedback post their installations.
Q: Is Silver's TUV Certified for Germany?
Q: Is everything designed and made in-house?
A: Yes, all Silver's, they do not rely on other part suppliers.
Q: I hear these have Remote Rear Dampening Adjusters, how do they work?
A: Watch This Video Demonstration On Our In-House Z06
Q: What if I have the electronic suspension, how do you address preventing an idiot light from coming on?
A: There are many reputable suppliers that can help you there with a resistor plug to trick the computer that everything is OK.
Q: Can't I just upgrade the shocks and call it a day?
A: Without getting rid of the transverse leaf in the C5/6 suspension setup, you will always have "suspension cross-talk". Converting to a full coilover suspension will eliminate that and allow better control.
How to setup preload: You will get our custom written install guide to assist you on installation emailed automatically after you checkout.
MASSIVE difference in ride quality. Noticeable differences with in cornering stability and traction can be felt immediately after installing. Service through FI is like no other as well. After ordering though this company, it will definitely be in your favor to return at every possible outlet again. Very few businesses conduct themselves in FIs manor, and is greatly refreshing and appreciated. If you chunked out the leak springs yet, do yourself a favor and get it gone!
Jordan we appreciate this!
Money well spent. Dramatically improved the ride. You can actually feel the suspension working now if that makes sense.
Thanks George for taking the time to leave this feedback!
I bought the street spring rates. I never would have thought my C5 FRC could ride this nice. What a change. On the street it soaks up bumps and feels luxury car smooth compared to stock and handles great in the corners. I was always weary because lowered stock suspension would bounce around when cornering on uneven pavement at higher speeds. I had to do something to fix that. Now it feels planted and in control. For the C5 Vette buy these you won't regret it.
I can’t say enough positive things about these! They ride amazing and are killer on the track! Great coilovers especially for the money! Can’t go wrong!
I got the Silver Neo Max's for use on my 03 Drift Edition Vette and it was like night and day on the handling. The transitions were buttery smooth, eliminated the cross talk on the rear side. I was able to get deep in my sweeps and max out my angle. Installation was a breeze and the fine tune adjustments are handy, so if your looking for a kit that can do it all and better than the rest i highly recommend you stop reading these reviews add them to your cart and click the purchase so they'll get shipped asap you'll be glad you did.
