I have never heard of them on a 'vette... there magnetic ride control but never heard of air suspension... air ride is comfortable but a p.i.t.a to own.

Um, why?

Air shocks were designed to assist the rear springs when hauling heavy loads. What are you planning to haul?



Oh, regarding your question, no, I am unaware of anyone making air-adjustable shocks for Corvettes.

Not hauling anything just want a less harsh ride. Found this place that has a front system and another that has air shocks that replace the springs.

Try a set of Koni red shocks they are adjustable.

I put a set on my 86 and new Poly bushing what a diffrence much better.

The shocks on the car when I got were worn out and the bushings were roted and hard as a rock.

Give this a try It will be cheeper I picked my shocks off anouther forum member they only had 300 miles on them for $200.00 before he went with a coil over system instead.
