DAMN, very nice setup Rick. Is that a package or did you pick and choose from the parts bin?

Thanks Steve. And to answer your question...YES.

The coil overs and bars were a package (with the ZL1 rear bar spec option added). The bushings, I bought from another member that never installed them.

Got most of the suspension done. Coilovers and sway bars are installed. Cradle bushings...I'm going to sit on for a while. Want to see how this works first and I'm not convinced it's a good idea to attempt the 1201 bushing install in my garage on the short jack stands. Alignment is booked for next week.



Front



Rear (ZL1 conversion)



The old stuff


The coilovers are lighter than the stock struts and springs but the sway bars are a lot heavier. Probably a wash in the weight department. The stock sways feel like conduit pipe in comparison to the Pedders bars. They are smaller diameter and hollow.

Need to reinstall the exhaust & wheels and install the new rockers & splitter. The body parts are back from the paint shop and look good. One rocker was missing the door seal and clips when the package arrived, so Maureen is sending those out for me.

I'll have some pics of the new stance when the car is off the stands.

The new look (and feel) for this year. A quick shot taken in the driveway before going in for the alignment. 1LE splitter, ZL1 rockers, Forgeline CF5 wheels and lowered on Pedders Xa coilovers and sways.
