iam looking to purchase 94-96 C4 with a 6SP trans my question :
do all the 94-96 C4 built come with the Z51 sus + is the Z51 the top rated performance sus? dose the Z51 come with 32m F swaybar + 26m R swaybar? are the KYB shocks equal to the stock bilistiens? which performance shock would you rec KONI for example?
Z51 came back in 1996. it was not available in 1994 or 1995
The option Z51 was not available in 94/95 but Z07 was.
From 91-95 Z07 was also associated with the FX3 adjustable shock option. In 96, the adjustable shock system changed to F45 and was not associated with the performance handling package which returned to the Z51 RPO and fixed shocks.
So, if you're looking for a Vette from those MY's, look for Z07 or Z51 (96) on the RPO listing. Either way, you get stiffer springs, stiffer shocks and bigger antiroll bars.
Hope this helps.
The zo7 package is actually better than the 96 z51 package (which is actually closer to the 95 and previous base suspension). I think the 96 z51 had 28mm fronts and 24 mm in back (unless it was a GS, then 26mm in back).
I have a 96 Z51 car. there is plenty of body roll in corners. The car is not stiff at all. It really needs more sway bar and more spring.
