Could you measure the height from the top of the wheel well to the bottom of the wheel for reference, front and back? I like being lowered an inch with coil overs, but if the Z/28 suspension itself...

I used Dupli-Color rattle can in metallic black to match my stripes. I then wet sanded it to get it smooth, and then cleared it. After that I used a polisher to give it a mirror finish. It came out...

Go with what you can afford. If money is not a factor, paint is way nicer. Vinyl looks like stickers I put on my toy cars as a kid.

I wonder how well this suspension would be on a car that doesn't have the same tires/wheels the Z/28 has? One would think GM "tuned" the suspension with the Z/28 tire combo as a complete system. I...

The difference is really around 2.5%. 1.00-(27.9" / 28.6") = .024475. Diameter of 285 divided by diameter of 275. The 285's make the speedo think you are going faster.

I would replace the brake lines with braided, which you might need to do regardless. I know the guy that my buddy worked on had already bought Goodridge lines. So I can't say the V6 lines won't work...

The last two PNs for for the rear dust shields. You don't need those. You will need to trim the edge of the dust shield to clear the SS rotors. A buddy of mine did this for a customer of his and he...

No more a pain than installing springs. Most of the install involves the same steps either way. You won't need a spring compressor with coilovers. You'll still need an alignment either way.

I would check the LCA. Look at your caster numbers between right and left. There's no way to adjust caster on a stock car, and that difference is too great IMO to be just normal. Follow what TD195f...

+1 looks low enough to be covered up. Pay to have it repainted or spend about the same for a splitter. I'd go with a splitter.

How's first on your 2010 with the 3.91? A buddy of mine installed a set for a customer and thought first was pretty useless afterwards. Think he was taking about how fast it winds out.

To save you money how? By giving you 5% off your insurance. Let's see, 1 year of on-star is $199. To break even I would have to pay $4,000 a year on a Camaro.

Just don't wait hours before attaching the brake line to the caliper. Some siphoning action can happen, but the worst case is you'll just have to bleed longer.
