What makes you think your T-stat is stuck open? I ask because I have the same suspicion on my 05 ZHP.

Monroe does not make anything for the Corvette. Monroe aftermarket or service dampers are garbage. KYB isn't much better. If you're just replacing worn out stock shocks, get the OEM Boge's.

FWIW, control arm stiffness is a major factor when it comes to steering response. The fact that the Meyle arm weighs 1.1lbs (~15%) more than the ZHP arm indicates that it is either made from a...

Are your F1's the all seasons or the summer only? I had the F1 A/S in that size on my GTI. They have a reinforced sidewall to help steering/handling, but the ride over sharp inputs is awful. You...
