Sideskirts bowing

Has anyone had problems with the bottom of their OEM side skirts bowing on the bottom flat. Meaning the piece that is parallel to the ground drooping thus looking wavy? Heard of people bracing the bottoms of ground effects like these but don't know if the OEM skirts are strong enough that this doesn't happen? I have duraflex ones on my 15 ss and they are bad and want to buy the OEM ones if this will correct my problem. Thanks guys

Make sure the clips are not detached. Sometimes if the wife leans into the ZL1 and puts a lot of pressure on the skirt, the clip below will pop out a little... making the skirt look like it is sagging.

Was that a defect, or damaged while operating the vehicle?

This is definitely from someone jacking the car up or being on a lift.

Yup. I meant lift, but said dyno.

no clue how it happened (dyno or lift) because its a used car.
at dealer how. they come get me and say we can't see the problem. so i walk to shop and its on lift.
and they supported it on the pinch welds! ughh and therefore pressing in the broken tab/valance hiding the issue.
i asked nicely not to support my car that way

Simple fix with some clips. They are a pain in the ass to replace but doable.
