No rubbing yet. I just raised the rear 1/4" to give it an even look front to rear and to make sure we don't get any crazy rubbing. Rear coilovers were set on 16 and even with a few bouncy roads, no rubbing. I'm going to drop them to 10 now and see what happens. Drop to 5 if nothing and so on.

I agree the look is great. I was so worried about all black rims not going with my "theme." But, knowing it might have been a possibility a while back, I decided to get the ZL1 rockers and left the bottoms black. Then I got the T4 splitter on front introducing a bit more black. I hoped since this was more how the 1LE's and ZL1's looked on the bottom, it would mesh well like they did. And sure nuff! It works! I think it also tones down the silver just a teeny tiny bit.....just enough to give it that perfect combo. Seriously, I've never been happier about the overall look of the car until yesterday. I can't believe it worked out this well.

But now it looks meaner....lol. I think I'm going to have to change it's name.

BANE.


And Pete? I think he's gonna say "needs lowering."

That, or, "so when are we going to do some autocross???"

The rotors look a million times better with the hats painted. What brand/kind of paint did you use?

Raised the back up 1/4" this morning. Car is leveled out now. Looks better and hopefully that extra bit of clearance will help in the long run.

Totally agree. I can't believe the rears rusted like that.

I used Rust-Oleum 2000 degree high heat matte black paint. Just a few bucks at HD. Taped them off, hit them several times from all angles, hit them again.

When Doug said Nittos I thought NT-05.

The wheels and tires look great.

We are going back to BlackJack for corner weighting and re-alignment so we are ready for a CamaroCross.

I looked at the NT-05 but went with the Invo's as they had better ratings. Not a bad price on all of them either.

Still on Xa's. Would rather have supercars.....BUT>>>>>>>>>>>>>......

Yeah...raised....I know. But when you see, you'll know why.

LMK on black jack.

There is one thing I miss having moved from Michigan. Machine shops on very corner used to doing prototype work. Is there machine shop in the SA area that can mill a bit of stock off the inner wheel hub face?
