Nah, just waited for the right deal to come along. Seeing them now for anywhere from $400-700 for the suspension components.

I'm sorry but is that the kit and the installation combined?

Thx

The sway bar on the 1LE kit in the rear is wider and mounts to a different spot on the suspension. It will hit the bolt on the stock V6 caliper. The GM Performance catalog does say the Brembo kit is required.

I installed my 1LE kit over several days, driving the car in between. The rear sway made the most difference, followed by the front. The springs and shocks were not as profound of a difference. If you're looking to spread the cost out, get sway bars first.

I've heard many people say not to change the ride height from stock with these shocks- so I'm curious how well the 1" drop works with them.

So just to clarify, it is only an issue with the rear calipers, not the front?

So here's a video of how well the 1LE suspension works on the V6!

Enjoy!

I remember that! I didn't see you at the last cruise Kaboom.

I have the same original question, so, does the 1LE Suspension Package fits an stock 2013 V6 or do you need the Brembos? Because some sites mention it and some others dont.

Or you could get your rear sway bar from JPSS, I think that one clears the brakes.

Anyone else have an issue with the rear sitting lower than the front after doing this? Mine has a great stance on the rear, but the front seems too high now. I used the complete kit which had new springs for the front, rear shock towers, shocks, bars etc.
