Sounds good, Looking for any feedback from anyone else who has installed ZL1 springs on an SS. The price is right for sure.... Bump stops anyone trimming them with the ZL1 spring install. Other lowering springs in the 1.25 range are instructing you to trim off an inch ( PFADT)

not sure finger measurements are accurate when the rubbers are different sizes, too.

The two photos of the springs out of the car (V6 on the right, ZL1 on the left) so you can see the difference.

I used to be able to fit 4 fingers in the wheel well from the top of the tire to the top of the fender, now it's hard to fit 2 fingers in.

Looks so much better now
Any updates now that you've had a few months to drive it?

Have you timed the bushes?

When you lowered your car the alignment changed. It should be aligned at the new ride height after the bushes are timed.
