How would I know if my '82 has the "Gymkhana" suspension I see listed in the 1982 Corvette specifications? I see they made 5457 cars with this suspension, but I have no idea how I would tell whether or not I have one. My '82 has a 7 leaf steel rear spring. Is that what the Gymkhana suspension is all about? A 7 leaf steel spring? Or did the Gymkhana suspension use a single leaf fiberglass spring? And is the Gymkhana suspension a stiffer suspension? My '82 is pretty rough riding, and I have often suspected my suspension is stiffer than normal. Also, I have heard the car's specifications are on a gas tank sticker. Where on the gas tank would I find this sticker? I bought this car with only 43,000 miles on it back in 1988, and I really doubt the previous owner would have removed the sticker.
I can put my car into a sideways slide and there is hardly any body roll at all. And when I jack it up ANYWHERE on the frame, both left (or right) side tires lift up off the ground at virtually the same time. It's REAL stiff. Gynkhana?
