Hi All!

I'm planning on purchasing my first corvette this weekend and I'm starting to get pretty excited. It is a 2002 6 speed with 16k miles on it. The car has the Z51 suspension package and I'm curious if anyone has any opinions if the ride is a lot rougher than the standard package. Any opinion would be appreciated.

Welcome "jonnysommer" to the CAC.

I don't think you will have a problem with the Z51 suspension. Ride is a matter of preference, but I'm sure your smile will be so large every time you go for a cruse that you wouldn't notice the subtle difference in the suspension. :rotfl

Congrats - Welcome to the :CAC

I think Z51's are a bit harder on ya, but they more than make up for that with their overall handling characteristics: they don't roll as much in the corners and during quick turns. :cool

I know you will enjoy it...

Sweet Deal!! You need to swing by Kehma on saturday nights and check out all our rides there at the chick-fil-a. Look for my '04 comp orange stang & 1980 L82 there.

Welcome JonnySommer! Sounds like a great car that you've found. Definately check out the Kemah show at Chick-fil-a. You also might want to check out the League City show every Friday night at the city park, although the Kemah show has better lighting.:upthumbs
