    Most of those parts don't exist for our cars, I don't think he realized he was in the corvette section.

    Get a tunnel brace, those work well. You can get bigger sway bars as well.

    I think ecklers may have parts

    Get yourself a complete low mile take-off Z06 suspension package (Springs, shocks, swaybars). It will make a big difference. I went with the same package but added Hotchkis swaybars and the handling is amazing! Good luck

    So how would one get subframe connectors for a 'vette?

    ...or a strut tower brace when there's no strut tower....or a panhard rod for an IRS rear....
