Well I'm interested if not only for the ride height adjustability, and added static stiffness. My car is a 4x4 in my view (height wise).

If you are looking to build a purpose built track car, pick one of the two and then go that direction.
Not trying to be negative at all, but remember that the ZL1 is purpose built to do it all and that is why I bought it. So when more info on these things comes out I'll definitely be looking. However, when it comes to any mod, I won't do a mod that ever takes away from this car being a ZL1 and what makes it so special. That is absolutely no knock on this product, in fact the exact opposite because this product incorporates what it does and the MR. I suppose then my statement is aimed to the general after market in saying make sure what you want to sell me elevates the ZL1 and doesn't turn it into a SS with ground effects.

Don't think so, last I read ,Pfadt's website said just get coilovers and abandon the Mag ride, could be wrong about that interpretation, but I don't want to give up my Mag ride.

That question can be posed about pretty much any upgrade on any car. The car already comes with a suspension, why replace it? The answer is plain and simple: pure performance.
This is true, but many people are paying the ZL1 premium for its handling performance (among other things). It seems silly to pay all this extra money for the ZL1's features only to throw them out and pay another few grand on top of new suspension.

At this point, might as well get an SS and with the money saved on MSRP you put in some killer suspension and engine modifications. At least then you are only throwing away a crappy suspension while saving alot for money.

It's like spending extra money on an expensive badass computer from Alienware only to completely gut it out and put in new top of the line components. Might as well get a basic desktop and upgrade that with the same components.

It would be nice to have ADJUSTABLE ride height so I could go low at the track and high on the streets. Maybe if Chevy RandD is watching they can consider it in the future.

We have been handling these on a per case basis with Pfadt. It does require your cores or a set of cores for modification. I will get you guys some better answers this morning as a followup!

I will get an update today. I know they have done a few sets already, it does require your coilovers to be modified.

Two questions:
  1. Do they have cores in stock (i.e. I pay a core charge when I buy a set and that gets refunded once Pfadt receives my OEM coilovers)
  2. How much lighter are these than the stock coilovers?

Hey guys got some news back from the the guys over at Pfadt. Unfortunately they are not going to pursue the product any further from where they are now. There are a few cars running these right now, but the cost vs. interest is just not there. However, there are plenty of ZLs running the full Pfadt production coilover, but yes you will have to give up the mag-ride suspension in favor of the coilover.
