Also, for the fronts there are three holes you have to drill in front clip to bolt these on(see pics below)

That is if you can even get a hold of some due to GM restrictions.
Can you tell us where you are getting these restricted parts from?

The flares will work with GFX kit and minor mods. The front spoiler is similar to z/28 just comes up higher. Back part will need a piece to blend into gfx side skirt and rear. I am hoping sometime this summer to make the blending pieces. the hard part is getting the flares.

On the fiberglass aftermarket ones those would require bonding and splitting them since they need to attach to both back or front fascia which needs to be removable. That is were it gets tricky on the fiberglass flares and why I ended up getting a z28 for 3 weeks so I could order my flares.

You can order them but they will end up canceling your order unless you have a valid vin. tried that 8 months ago.

BTW looks like duraflex now has front flares they are offering them on ebay.

I got mine from cheapestgmparts.com but I highly advise not to go there. It took about a month to get them and when I did, half the parts were cracked , bent or snapped in half. They never answer their phone and have poor customer service. I finally got everything and they made it right but it was the biggest PITA.

You can search the interwebs for discount GM parts and find these parts at any reseller up to 40% off list price. They have to custom order them direct from GM and restricted parts require a valid VIN of z/28.

it boggles my mind that you bought a 2014-15 z/28 just to strip parts off to put on your 2010 SS but to each their own.

It took me two minutes to figure out how to get around the restriction. I'm quite shocked nobody has figured this out after a year already. All you need is a valid z/28 VIN to order the parts. GM doesn't check that the VIN matches your name and the name of who ordered the parts.

Hope this helps. Everyone enjoy your new z/28 swag. If you still can't figure it out, I don't know what to say.

Thx for the tip. I was under the impression GM checks the VIN against the registered owner. Now I know.

I was under the impression they do as well. Unless some one running your parts counter doesn't know what they are doing lol

As in full brake hardware upgrade or just upgrade the looks? My brakes actually work great.

I bought a G2 high temp Brembo red brake caliper paint kit with black Brembo decals. Just need to find the time to paint them.

Thanks for the advice, i recognized this too after getting the new wheels you can see those ugly calipers more now.
