NEW FORGED ENDS, NOT WELDED ENDS
This set of C4 Corvette Smart Struts come with polyurethane bushings. The difference between Smart Struts and Adjustable Strut Rods is the bracket provided with the Smart Struts. It lowers the center point of the strut rod under the diff. to improve handling, reduce tire wear and take side load off the bearing assemblies.
Smart Struts increased adjust-ability and rigidity improves suspension geometry, eliminating camber change during suspension travel. This keeps more of the tire's contact patch on the ground at all times. The result is improved traction and stability during hard cornering, as well as more off the line traction. Its heavy duty construction will also maintain alignment settings better than the factory components under aggressive driving maneuvers.
