Granatelli Motor Sports – Adjustable Toe Links For Your C7

Granatelli Motor Sports (GMS) has been producing some of the highest quality electronic automotive components and American Muscle suspension systems for over 25 years. The engineers working under the GMS namesake are some of the brightest minds in the industry, pushing out products that cover just about the entire American musclecar and truck lineup.Rear toe geometry has a direct link to high speed tracking and cornering stability, and is critical to keeping your tires planted on the road. When lowering your ride height using springs or coilovers, you generally end up lowering the car’s center of gravity enough to significantly throw off the factory suspension geometry. This can noticeably reduce the handling capabilities of your sports car and increase tire wear, adding unnecessary risk and additional costs that are easily prevented with the addition of adjustable suspension components.

One of the latest GMS products in this category are its Adjustable Rear Toe Links for the 2015+ C7 Corvette (all models). These rear toe links are designed to be bulletproof; measuring .875 inches in diameter, they utilize 6061-T6 billet rods, chromoly heim joints, and 4130 tapered pins for factory fitment.

Additionally, these links feature a turnbuckle style double adjustment, this means you adjust toe-in and toe-out by loosening the lock nuts and then rotating the link itself. This provides more precise and infinite adjustments, with the added bonus of never having to adjust the factory eccentric bolts again.If your Corvette is lower than stock, Granatelli’s adjustable rear toe arms are crucial to properly adjusting toe-in or toe-out on your C7’s rear suspension. Why would you lower your C7, just to end up compromising the handling that Corvette’s are world renowned for?
