Is there any disadvantages of leaf springs?
Apparently not many. Our cars go link stink around corners. I believe most would agree that coil-over is better when dialed in correctly. For a mass produced car, the Vette is very :coo: .

Disadvantage: very hard to change spring rates, ride height.

Advantages: in this application low unsprung weight, extra room in the wheel house.

Sometimes I think they should have changed just so that every last stinking review I read doesn't say, "blah blah blah but it's still got leaf-springs from a roman chariot blah blah blah".

I actually got a chance to look underneath one of the new Z06's and both the front and rears are using the leaf springs again.

Rich air and clear skies,
