MAKING My Rat Infested $5,000 CORVETTE Handle Like A ZO6

11 ditë më parë

I bought a 2000 Chevy Corvette convertible that sat in a barn, got ate up by rats, then sat outside for years at a shop. It runs and drives (barely) and was only $5,000. The C5 is one of my all time favorite cars to work on and today we're going to swap the F45 Real Time Damping suspension out for the ZO6 shocks. This is the complete how-to and at the end you won't have any suspension errors on the dash. No reason for simulators or anything, just remove it all and delete the option.
$369 ZO6 Suspension Kit:
Icon 1/2" Torque Wrench:
Shop Motul:
Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make ALpost videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?
Instagram: WatchJRGo
Facebook: WatchJRGo (or JRGo, FB hates my branding)
Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

You can put an extension on that socket with the stuck lug inside, heat the socket a little and hold the extension down with your hand or foot while you take a sledge hammer to the socket. Give it several tries and it will eventually come out. I removed stuck lugs daily for 11 years and not once did I ever use a welder.

Lug nut key is only 30 bucks and you only get them from GM dealership. I know cause I lost mine before. Or you might be able to find on at a junk yard.

This isnt a Z06 suspension by just changing the shocks. It would require the said transverse leafs and sway bars also. The shocks are not springs they just dampen.

_Wow, fifteen days! It took Discount Tire here in my home state five minutes to remove the wheel locks(without the key of course)when I picked up my C4 several years ago. (And they didn't damage the spindle)! Great content JR for sure._

I use a impact socket hammered on to remove weird lock nuts, THEN I put the socket in a vice and use a air chizel to punch out the old nuts. Another trick is to put a wheel stud or bolt in a vice, thread on the socket/nut combo and run the impact on the opposite direction to get the nut loose

I considered buying those shocks last summer and saw them as low as 279.00, most around 299.00. I cant find them under 369.00 now. Huge increase in such a short time. I dont think a Z06 rear spring fits a base C5. Will you still look to stiffen the rear spring or leave the stock spring?

Tell the found the lug nut socket when you cleaned the car out, didn't you? Seriously, whenever I buy an old car, I immediately clean it out really good because you'll be amazed at the surprises you'll find that will help you down the road. Enjoying the video, keep it up!

Yes! Always delete the active suspension when having to replace. Not worth it for most of our driving styles. (Unless of course its something modern and actually good like the C8 like you said).

Use a shop press to press the lug out of the socket-- just need a punch that will fit inside it and a bench vice clamped into the press to hold the socket. Usually when I have to resort to doing that I run and buy a couple of the right size "throw away" sockets vs using my good ones.

Use a long punch and a bench vise to force the lug nuts out of your impact socket never use impact sockets to force over a lug nut bro 35 years as a technician 20 of those as a master tech experience in the field good luck
M3t4l5t0rm 9 ditë më parë
You need to use a thin walled deep chrome 12 point socket to remove wheel lugs, I have never been defeated by a locking lug nut using this method Just hammer it on and run it off
