    I think if you call LG Motorsports they will put together a set for you. You can also call Anze Engineering and get Penskes, which will cost more. Typically, these shops develop setups for specific vehicles, make a set or two, and test them. From them on they put together sets on an "as needed basis". The market niche they cater to is simply too small for them to make batches and put them up for sale.

    My biggest fear with everything for this car is making the car unlivable as a DD. The factory suspension has a little too much float in it for my tastes so modification is in the future. I want it to be comfortable, taut, and handle respectably well, but I don't want to get beaten up every day on the bumpy streets of DC/VA. Trying to get recommendations on Exhaust or Suspension is terrible here, though I can always rely on Darkman for reliable info and intelligent and posts.

    Right with ya on that DD. I put 20-25k a year on and have to keep it wife approved for daily driving. Yes I have thought about a v2 like nearly ever day haha. I bought the KW v3 setup but haven't installed it yet perhaps this weekend. The main reason I didn't go for the full coilovers mentioned here is because I have a hitch and didn't think the extra weight from the trailer/with 2 sportbikes on it and gear in the trunk would be a good idea with rear coil overs. I don't really have any data showing that the rear shock towers wouldn't be able to handle it, but it just seemed like a bad idea. Also I believe the price of the kw v3 system is slightly less. Either solution seems like a large leap forward compared to stock.

    I have ordered the LG Motorsport coilovers and am looking forward to getting them. I'll provide feedback in several weeks.

    What spring rates does the lg come with and did you go for what they advised? As I understand the rear spring rate is probably lower than stock due to the location change of the spring.

    Re: CTS-V Coilovers from LG Motorsports

    Did you go for full track setup or more street/track ? are they adjustables?
    I'm currently waiting on my triple adjustable Penskes with remote reservoirs built by Anze. Strictly for the track tho...

    Re: CTS-V Coilovers from LG Motorsports

    I believe $2300.

    Re: CTS-V Coilovers from LG Motorsports

    These are non-adjustable, more than the introductory price of $2300. Yes, they are in range of 700/400 and I believe the 400 rear does have a higher effective spring rate due to the spring relocated to the shock location for a true coilover. With LG Motorsport expertise on Corvette suspensions, I trust their design with Bilstein to get the valving tuned to the spring rate. On another note, just had Creative Steel motor and trans mount, rear diff bushing, shifter bushings installed---amazing difference in the entire drivetrain...much more predictable shifting, no more driveline wind-up, more solid handling (compared to my UUC motormounts which were broken). Also added x-pipe to replace Corsa resonators...bought from Columbia River Mandrel Bends...great price, customer service and quick delivery.
