Not that it affects ride height, but, we put the preload on the rears at 5mm and about 3 mm up front. I shot some video of how to set the preload on the rears, same process as the fronts.


Alignment,

Jerry Hamm here in Jax has a real good Corvette/Camaro Tech named Mike.

After I asked him to time the bushings he said no problem. In fact he said... I'm glad you asked me to do that it makes perfect sense....

I didn't ask him for any custom alignment, especially since I'm about to drive 4K miles here in a couple weeks... But they're gonna take care of me.

OK translation

OE Front with 20" Wheels 694mm
OE Rear with 20" Wheels 700mm


OE Front with 20" Wheels 648mm / dropped 46mm about 2"
OE Rear with 20" Wheels 665mm / dropped 35mm about 1 1/2 inches

Tell you alignment professional Mike that you would like your rear to have minimal negative camber. Less is better. Up front with your Supercars and radius bush inserts you can run a bit negative -.75 to -1 with minimal toe and get excellent tire wear all around with good turn in and cornering.

It's not all roses here in JAX...I still opt for a six hour journey north when I need some heavy lifting (and fine tuning) done...

Oh...and during the install...I took a little bit of THR22 with me that day. I know this because I dug it out of my thumb yesterday...little blue piece of metal. Now Chris's car is a little bit lighter too....uh oh....
