Gymkhana Suspension - What Did It Consist Of
I understand that the Gymkhana Suspension option replaced the stock spring with a 7 leaf spring and a rear sway bar. Is this correct and if so, where there any other changes?
Stiffer springs front and rear, thicker front sway bar, and added a rear sway bar.
Shawn I think that answers your question.
Gone but not forgotten
Here's what little I know. The Gymkhana Suspension was offered on the 75 - 82 Vettes as the (FE-7) suspension option and included:
1. Special front springs and shocks
2. Special rear (7 leaf) spring and matching shocks
3. Special front stabilizer bar (1 3/32") with H/D rubber mounting hardware.
4. Special rear stabillizer bar (7/16') with H/D rubber mounting hardware.
If there is anything else you need to know about this subject the experts for both parts and information are located at Contempory Corvette in Bristol, PA.

Shawn78 and I have been going back and forth on whether or not a Vette that shipped with the factory trailer hitch came with the FE7 option and a heavy duty radiator. He had information that it did and I didn't know. With this info I'll at least be able to look at the suspension.
Anyone know about the radiator?
On the CAC Production info page for the '78, http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/...78/78prod.html it states that the ZN1 package included "heavy duty radiator, and FE7 Gymkhana Suspension".
