Johnny O’Connell Signature Suspension Package – Stage 1
Johnny and Pfadt are kicking off this great relationship with a "Stage 1" package that contains a set of tuned Sport Sway Bars, bushings and endlinks along with bolt-in Shock replacements for each corner. During a testing and development day here at Miller Motorsports Park we nailed down the specifics of each component to tune the balance that this package will provide.

The Johnny O’Connell Signature Suspension line is the result of combining the professional driving skills from Johnny O’Connell and the engineering expertise of Pfadt Race Engineering to give you a suspension package tuned to perfection. This suspension system has gone through countless engineering revisions and A/B testing on the race track, mountain passes and stretches of pot-hole riddled road. The purpose, to provide you with a suspension that has racecar level road holding ability and the streetability you would expect from your daily driver.

It was a long test day, but many sessions were required to get a good baseline and step-by-step comparison of all parts/adjustments. We tried many different sway bar combinations and damper valving configurations, and at the end of the day we had solid data showing us exactly where the Johnny O'Connell suspension needs to fall in terms of performance and drivability. With this package you will not need to know how to tune your own suspension, because the work is already done for you.

The Stage 1 Package includes:

Shocks: These Johnny O'Connell Shock upgrades are the only OEM quality replacements on the market. Made to the exact travel and durability requirements as the OEM shocks, these upgraded versions have a completely revised damping curve engineering into them. These shocks remove the harsh ride characteristics associated with the OEM dampers when at speed on a highway or hitting a bump in a middle of a turn. In addition they are stiffer in performance applications like quick turn in to get the car planted in a turn, and transient handling moves from left to right and visa versa. You can bolt these shocks on to your Corvette and know that it was tuned by Johnny and Pfadt to the exact specification it needs to be for a perfect performance and smooth ride balance.

Sway Bars:
The Johnny O’Connell Tuned sway bars are an integral part of the entire package developed with the street driven Corvette performance driver in mind. By increasing the sway bar rate of the Corvette we have reduced the body roll creating a more stable platform with improved steering response. We have also invested considerable time to develop sway bars that are balanced to increase cornering grip while making the Corvette easier to drive at the limit. This gives you the confidence to carry more speed into the corners knowing that the car will be predictable and controllable at the limit. Included in this sway bar kit are all bushings, endlinks and hardware necessary for a complete installation.
