How well do these new ones handle? Any decrease in Cadillac type cushion? Any extra road noise?

Whoops just saw this.

They reduced her boot to an ankle brace but the break is still there so she's got to be careful. As you saw she got around in the boot pretty good and I think it's more comfortable than the smaller brace so she's back and forth now. Another 3 weeks to go.

Some owners report a clicking sound. That is an installation problem. These high tech lowering devices must be installed between tread blocks and away from the wear bars.

Three more weeks? I think you should get her her own Hyperbaric Chamber. I found some used equipment for sale. I think you should get the multi-person unit so you can share with your C5 friends.

There are good days and bad days. Good weeks, bad weeks, months, years...

Chevrolet releases the ZL1 with a much improved sub-frame bushes, but leaves room for Pedders EP1200 inserts.

Chevrolet releases the ZL1 with CTS-V front calipers, which is coincidentally the same front brakes Pedders has been using since 2009.

Chevrolet releases the 1LE with a solid 27mm front sway bar, which is coincidentally the same size front sway Pedders has been using since 2009.

Chevrolet invites me to the debut of the Z/28 with 305/30/19s which is coincidentally the same tire size Pedders has been using since 2009.

Then Tbone posts an article that says strut tower bars don't show measurable improvements when measured on the most sophisticated test equipment available, which is coincidentally the same thing Pedders has been saying about the 5th Gen Camaro since 2009.

Did you really need an article to know that you were right about the strut tower brace? lol
