    Our latest AST shock version and what we will send to production is the AST 5000 series. The 5200 shocks built for our tester's Corvette have remote reservoirs, double adjustability, inverted front shocks, and easy access concentric Rebound knobs.

    They ride great, have a large Compression and Rebound damping range, and are holding up perfectly in testing. Production upper front shock mount for "eye" style will be 1-piece CNC machined.

    The front shocks can be built with either the custom spherical bearing "eye" upper mount and bracket for coilover use, or the OEM style "stem" upper mount for use with the stock transverse leaf springs. Available as single/double/triple adjustables (5100/5200/5300), all with remote reservoirs for added bump and droop travel. Coilover style is machined to work with 2.25" ID Hyperco coilover springs, for added clearance and lightest weight. These should be in production shortly - retail pricing to follow.

    There is nothing out there like this for the C5/C6 Corvette. These have more bump and droop travel than any monotube Corvette shock we've tested (we've dyno'd them all). The factory Corvette shocks are garbage - complete noodles.
