Update: The ZL1 responds very well to lowering, sway bars, radius and sub-frame inserts. The owners running on per-production parts are thrilled with them.

I like the Pedders "Track 2 Xa" package for the ZL1 minus the coilovers (just springs)... would want to keep the G3 magneto struts.

It's been my good experience that any car I have ever owned rode better on the street with a complete urethane bushing swap.
- Here in ATL, we've got a dedicated alignmnet shop for Road Atlanta drivers.

You are dead nuts on!

Does that dedicated alignment shop do suspension installs?

Most CTS-V's getting lowered are not going with the D3 springs and new MR bars. Most are now doing Eibach's with no other modification(except cutting bump stops) and loving it. .9" inch in front and 1.1 in the back. I don't think the MR will be affected to much to notice.

Changing out the sway bar on the sway on the CTS-V is more than the usual amount of work. I think that has a great deal to do with the spring only upgrades on the V.

Lowering the ZL1

The only thing that needs lowering on the ZL1 is the price.
I'm still amazed at how many of you guys can afford to spend $60K on a Camaro.
My IOM 2013 ZL1 (on order now) will run around $62,700 including tax/license/title.
That's a lot to spend on anything you don't need (but want anyway).

They probably do, but I prefer my wrench hands over shops for suspension.
- if I could remember the place... :(

I understand. I could really use a top quality customer centric shop in your area. My #1 criteria for a new dealer is their commitment to customer service. We can teach tech, but we can't teach customer service culture. If you can get me a the shop name and a contact

The Customer Service was excellent, little shop; not fancy... but they take the time to align the car how you want and with you in it for load balancing.

I recall it was in Norcross GA, just outside the 285 loop.
