Upgrade your 1997-2002 Corvette F45 (only)Chassis Continuously Variable Real Time Damping (CCVRTD) suspension system with this MagneRide (F55) suspension system.
The resulting uncompromised comfort and handling with redesigned jounce bumper for superior wheel control and large impact feel, and automatic and independent adjustment of rebound and compression damping loads are a perfect upgrade to your C5 Corvette.
MagneRide shock absorbers utilize state of the art magnetorheological (MR) fluid, which is a complex, synthetic - hydrocarbon - based liquid having somewhere between 20% and 40% (by volume) Carbony Iron Particles (97% - 99% iron) to offer excellent electromagnetic properties.
The flow characteristics (rheology) change when subjucted to a direct-current - magnetic field stregth. The MagneRide controller is a powerful dual-processor device which is capable of making 1000 adjustments per second in each of the car's four shocks.
The controller receives each wheel movement in the vehicle via position sensors and according to the wheel movement data, the controller will determine the vehicle body motions (pich, roll, and lift). Utilizing the two mode F45 center console switch, in (tour) mode, the controller emphasizes the driver comfort, while in (sport) mode the road feel and steering response will be maximized.
This upgrade kit utilizes the existing F45 wheel position sensors, driver select switch, and main suspension system wiring harness.
