Added some Pedders rear eccentrics bolts. They allowed my alignment guy to get the car to the Pedders Aggressive Street alignment.

Video from my first Auto-X with all the FE4/ZL1 bars/Aggressive alignment done.

This is on street tires and OEM wheels. Ran with a buddy that races a C5 Z06 with race wheels/tires. My car barely beat his. He is pretty much stock other than the wheels/tires though.

Easy. Two bolts on each side. I used a few long extensions and came in from the engine compartment.

Two tips I will give....use blue locktite when putting the bolts back and go ahead and remove and install locktite on the driver side bolts as well. Just do one side and a time when taking out the bolts. I didn't bother to even touch the driver side until it came loose on me and caused me a bunch of headache and a couple extra alignments trying to find the problem.

The steering bush is not something I would go out and make and effort to buy or install by itself but if you're already buying/installing sway bars like I did then it's worth doing.

Thanks, I have sway bars now and would like to do this to stiffen up steering.....seems very easy...do you have to have a alignment when you put this in?

Nope....you'll be good to go but getting it aligned to the Pedders or Pfadt "Aggressive Street" specs will help. Remember, blue locktite your bolts on both sides. Actually locktite any nut/bolt you deal with on your suspension. I've have more than one nut come loose on ones that I didn't. One of them was a specialized left threaded nut you can't just find anywhere. Thankfully Pedders took care of me on that one.

Give JDP Motorsports a call for the bush. They'll take care of you both in price and customer service.

post #213 and probably other posts in there as well.

If your car is lowered over an 1" you'll probably need the rear eccentric bolts to get the car into spec. If not you should be able to get it or at least real close.

I looked at my car today and saw there are multiple steering rack bushings....Did you replace all of them or just one?

Got a set of used 18" Mickey Thompson ET Street drag radials mounted on some Corvette Grand Sport replicas. Should be enough meat on them to get me by for a few outings to the drag strip.

Next up will be my Hurst line-lock I've had sitting on my shelf for over a year now.
