1992 Corvette Rear Leaf Spring Lowering Kit ?????

    I am not aware of any lowering kits, but ......  Since 1963 all Corvette have a singular leaf spring that is transversely mounted from one side to the other, rather than from front to back.  This singular leaf spring is mount to the bottom of the third member and the ends attached to the rear hub carrier on each side.  There is a large long bolt, at the top is a flat metal washer and thick rubber washer, that attaches to the top of the rear hub carrier.  This is repeated at the bottom of the bolt that attaches to the transverse spring.  At the bottom of the threaded bolts is a flat metal washer and thick rubber washer, secured with a castle nut and cotter key.  There is nothing between the top of the leaf spring and the bottom of the trailing arms.  It easy to raise and lower the Corvette by adjusting these two bolts at the bottom end of the transverse spring.

    However, I think this is what you are looking for:
