My dealer threw the spacers and the valance pieces away. I just contacted them to get them for me and they want me to pay for them. I said they were suppose to come with the car wtf. I'm waiting for a response.

Sadly I read this after I purchased my ZL1 and I've already lost one of the winglets (damn parking curbs) and my dealer hasn't called me back on the spring spacers yet.

How much are you guys paying for the winglets because my dealer quoted me $130 for the pair?

Thanks for posting those pics. The dealers tell us they want NOT a "very satisfied" BUT they want a "completely satisfied" survey. HA!! I posted the following link in my survey and gave the service department low marks because either they were inept or NEVER put the car on a rack for inspection. Maybe they couldn't read English. My valances were installed but the BRIGHT YELLOW spacers were still on the car. One of the sales managers drove the car to an auto show before I bought it but never noticed how poor it drove. I drove the car off the showroom floor after I signed the papers and noticed right away that the car "bottomed" out at every little crack in the road. DUH!! Dealers need to be held accountable. I teach music and I can do better than they do!!

WHY DIDN'T THEY LET ME POST THE ENTIRE LINK?? It's zl1 registry link without the spaces.

Dealer is REQUIRED to remove spacers and install valance kit. If they tossed valance kit they are REQUIRED to purchase and install without charge. Your dealer, like mine, tossed the valance kit. Refer them to the PDI for the ZL1. If they refuse to do so contact the GM Dealer Rep for that dealer. I found out about seven months after I had my car that they were not installed. They will try to tell you they are an option and all that BS but the bottom line is they didn't read the PDI for this car!!!

I'd like to Thank Everyone on this forum. It has been a huge help to me. I studied all that was here and when I went in to pick up my new ZL1 the next morning, I was fully armed to the teeth with knowledge. I think they were shocked because even they didn't know some of this info. I had them change out all four tires because the rubber had the cold cracks in them and they had to remove the shock spacers as mentioned here too. I bet they would have let the tires go out like that if I never noticed them. I traded in my 2010 SS coupe for the new convertible and I'm not regretting it at all.

Thanks for the info on spacers, I still have to buy 1 @ 30.00 to get the other! They may come in handy while on the road.I have a '04-ZO6 that sets very low also but has RUN FLAT TIRES ( no problems as of yet)

I know this is months late, but I went thru this same scenario with my dealer. My dealer was already notorious for poor customer courtesy, so you could just imagine what I went thru to get these winglets installed; A lot of phone calls to Chevy CS, a few hand written complaints, a lot of cursing. I had the car several months before realizing that the winglets were not installed, and it took two months of fighting with the dealer to get them installed. In hindsight I wish I could've stumbed onto this thread at the time of delivery. I would've loved to have seen their faces by me refusing delivery for missing winglets haha!

How difficult is it to install/remove the spring spacers? What's involved to do it safely?

Very easy. Just jack the front of the car far enough to take the weight off the springs and pull them out.

Great info, thanks for the help. I kinda figured the common sense answer was soap and water. Thanks again.

Guess you better pay attention when pulling into parking lots or your driveway for those that have runoff outlets.
