    Default shocks

    HI Everyone,

    I have a 2003 50th anniversary with the magnetic ride control for the shocks. They are blown out and I want to replace them. I have absolutely NO interest in putting $2500 into shocks. What solutions has everyone found on replacing shocks and getting rid of the trouble code that will inevitably show up when the plug is pulled on the existing shocks?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Mid America and others used to sell a kit to use when replacing with non-oem shocks that would eliminate the thrown code. Don't know if they still do.

    When I looked at their system they said it wouldn't work on the 2003 or 2004 in their comments. Would it be awesome if they wouldnt make a $1500 option that costs $2500 to repair?

    I "know" there is a "work around" for the issue, but I can't remember what it is for the life of me. Try going to CorvetteMechanic and ask Paul. I assume he would know.
