I didn't realize the pads were that cheap. Without changes to alignment or suspension geometry, caliper and sway bar will travel on the same arc so they will hit no matter what. It'll take 1.3" more...

Can you post a pic of it hitting along with the thickness of your pads? I am curious how far the pads will have to wear in order for this to happen. You can also change the rotors too if it is worn....

How did you install the cradle bushings? I figure it'll be much harder since it is a single piece.

The primary advantage of wider rims and tires is that the tires will run cooler. This allows you to use tires with softer/stickier compound.

Thanks for posting this even though it was hard to read. About 20% stiffer spring rate, slightly stiffer stabilizer bars, and stronger mounting points (end links?) are interesting.

If I were you, I'd get an alignment to ZL1 spec. 2LS has -0.2 deg front camber. ZL1 is -1.0. This will bring the top of the tires in about 1/4" by tilting them in and reduce understeer at the same...

Could be either 430hp LT1 for SS/1LE or 486hp LT4 for ZL1? I think it is likely the LT1 for 2014. LT4 won't be ready until 2015.
