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.
Q: Why is there an option for Steinjager End Links?
A: The OEM end links are plastic and over time they get weak and break or the ball/socket is completely blown apart and dry. This leads to clanking and banging over small bumps. We offer a package price discount when ordering end links with your suspension kit.

After finally getting the car out for 2 events its time for my review. For a "budget coilover" you really can not get anything better. I was more than impressed after installing my set. I went with 12/10k and swift springs. It completely changed the car. The car no longer rides like a dump truck over bumpers, and handles like a dream compared to the Z06 leafs and AFE shocks. The spring rate is perfect on road and even better racing. The car is more planted and predictable over high speed bumps we deal with at our races. I would reccomend these to anyone looking to really enjoy your corvette and have it feel like a true sports car. I am running 18x10.5 square with 315/30 Hoosier A7.
I found this site on Corvette Forum and saw the owner is very active of Facebook. I messaged them and over the course of 2 days he answer 20+ questions about the coils. Believe the hype, I have been on these for 6 months now and they are truly the best mod I have made to date. Will absolutely put Silver's on my next car, whatever that is.
I got the coils in and and set up last night. Took the car for a shake down drive.
Wow what a difference. The overall ride quality is night and day and the car feels settled and planted when pushing it aggressively through the corners. It’s so much easier to put it on the edge and keep it there.
For a budget friendly coilover these are fantastic.
Thank you! I am impressed
