The C8 Corvette comes with tons of tricks to help it perform, including manually adjustable threaded spring seats on models equipped with the optional Z51 Performance Suspension (RPO code FE3). The performance suspension allows owners to adjust the vehicle ride height, and now, aftermarket speed specialist Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is making the process easier with its new C8 Spanner Wrench Set.
Designed specifically for adjusting the ride height on C8 Corvette models equipped with optional Z51 Performance Suspension, the Lingenfelter C8 Spanner Wrench Set is made from 6061 aluminum, and comes with a black hard coat anodized finish. The wrench has an integrated pin that grabs onto the suspension threaded collar, and is engineered to prevent the user from slipping the wrench while performing adjustments. What’s more, the wrench comes with an integrated scale to quickly and accurately measure vehicle ride height, enabling equal settings at all four corners.
“These wrenches are the only specifically designed precision C8 suspension tool for ride height adjustment and performance tuning,” Lingenfelter states. “The wrenches are a must for performance enthusiasts to optimize handling for track days.”
The new C8 Spanner Wrench Set is priced at $149.95 on Lingenfelter’s website. The wrench is also small enough to fit neatly in the recess under the owner’s manual in the glovebox. What’s more, Lingefenter is offering an optional leather storage pouch for an additional $50.00.
Check out the new Spanner Wrench Set in action in the following video, which shows not only how the wrench works, but also some on-track antics with the C8 Corvette laying into the loud pedal.
For those owners that optioned their C8 Corvette with both adjustable performance suspension and the front lift feature, Lingenfelter also offers a C8 Front Lift Lowering Kit, which allows owners to adjust the front ride height to match the adjustable rear, achieving an ideal stance at all four corners.
