1987 Corvette Suspension Upgrades

1987 Corvette
By 1987, the C4 Corvette had come into its own. The suspension had sorted itself out and was a good ride/handling compromise rather than a torture chamber. Lessons learned from the convertible's structural updates, particularly those forward of the front cowl, were found to be beneficial to the coupe and became part of the production of all Corvettes. A new "Sport Handling Package" suspension option (RPO Z52; $470.00) was less stiff than the racetrack designed Z51 selection and thus more appropriate for street use. Efforts to improve quality control and reliability continued, resulting in real benefits for the Corvette buyers.
Callaway twin turbo Corvette Corvette goes twin turbo! A Callaway Twin Turbo (RPO B2K; $19,995) was on the option list for 1987. The modifications were done by Callaway Cars and were sold by Chevrolet dealers. Output was 345 hp, good for 177.9 mph with the proper gearing. Chevrolet had developed their own twin turbo V8 Corvette, but elected to give Callaway that business. Although not certified for sale in California, they did sell 188 cars in 1987. More than 500 Callaway twin turbo Corvettes for various years were sold.
