Pedders on my ZL1
 
Okay I have a few pics I snapped today of the car after being lowered. The ride height was lowered 1" around. It was subtle at first, just barely noticeable but when side by side with another Camaro or now even entering my driveway you notice it immediately!

The original thread.

Looks good. So I'm curious as to what adjustments also had to made when you dropped it

Looks good! I really go back and forth about lowering mine, but when and if I decide to do it I will go with the Pedders kit. Yours looks great!

I have Springs and bushings done, all I needed was an alignment done to all 4 positions. Any good shop can do it for under $150.00

Thanks, I will be adding more suspension bushings on the rear and maybe Pedders sway bars later. I still need to install SS brake lines that I just received from Racing Brake. Next major addition is Status seats and a cage.

The major factor is a proper alignment on all 4 wheels after the car is lowered. The car gives feedback now and feels much more balanced now thru a turn.

Thanks Deke, It is worth it! I had been putting it off for awhile. :D

it looks great but i dont think id be able to go 1 more inch lower. we have stupid florida drains and the biggest friggin speedbumps in the country. i just couldnt imagine being any lower or id have no splitter.

silver surfer ZL1 05-25-2013 06:47 AM

what bushings were actually replaced? thanks

davidcroft 05-25-2013 06:49 AM

I was under the impression the factory magnetic ride didn't like anything lower than 3/4 of an inch:iono:
But then what do I know, I'm just a 1LE troll:smiling1:

So were any adjustments needed for the ride controls? based on looking at mine a lowered car would change the ride position of the sensors on each corner and perhaps the range?? don't know if that would effect it's ability to react to the road situation??

You get new ride hieght contol bars with the kit. Very easy to remove and install.
