Related To This Item

The new 1963-1982 Corvette QA1 Sport Series shocks are non-adjustable Stocker Star shocks tuned with firmer valving than the standard non-adjustable Stocker Stars. This firmer valving provides improved handling for pro-touring enthusiasts or autocross competition. The Sport Series shocks are bolt-on and go, combining the self-adjustment performance of non-adjustable shocks with the cornering ability of stiffer shocks.

QA1?s line of stock mount Stocker Star shocks are direct OE replacements for the front and rear that provide superior handling over stock. Engineered with deflective disc valving to provide increased valving response, control, and consistency, these American-made shocks also feature a three-step sealing system that eliminates seal drag and dirt intrusion. QA1 shocks come standard with all mounting hardware for both upper and lower mounts.

Check out these features of the QA1 Stocker Star shock:

  • Lightweight Aluminum Body
  • 100% Dyno Tested
  • Serialized
  • Serviceable & Rebuildable by QA1
  • Made in the USA

Because the QA1 shocks are re-buildable, they will be the last set of shocks you every have to purchase for your Corvette. Sold individually.

Adjustable vs. Non-Adjustable Shocks

Non-Adjustable - If you want a performance upgrade over Corvette factory shocks, but don't require the ability to make adjustments for handling characteristics, then the non-adjustable shocks are for you. You'll get the quality, comfortable and consistent ride you are looking for without the need to make any adjustments.

Adjustable - If you want the ability to change your Corvettes suspension and handling characteristics for different driving situations such as drag racing, road courses or street performance, then adjustable shocks are the best option.

QA1 Shocks

QA1’s Jim Jordan started his company with a desire to impact the performance racing world. His company jumped into the market with rod ends and spherical bearings, but in 1998, after five years in business, QA1 purchased Hal Shocks and started making shock absorbers for the drag strip. With their rebuildable shock line from 1999, QA1 underscored their care for the racer by offering a long-term solution for circle-track racing suspension. By 2004, QA1 was the number one producer of performance racing shocks, and in 2011, several more acquisitions solidified QA1 as the market leader. If you’re looking for the best suspension for your racing Corvette, Zip’s line of QA1 products is a fantastic choice.
