Better verify they clear the 1LE outer CV boot. I installed 1LE/ZL1 hubs with the 1LE axles on my SS. I cannot use the inner hole because the bar ends will contact the boots. I called Pfadt about it but this was right when they introduced them. Only suggestion they had was play the shim game on the sway bar straps. You should have no problem on any SS that doesn't have the 1LE axles. The CVs are smaller.

This picture is with the end link extended up by use of a spacer where it attaches to the LCA. Otherwise it was even worse on clearance.

The cars look great lowered, how's the ride though? Is there still enough wheel travel? Finally, using the OEM shocks/struts ok?
Thanks

When I get those axles I would just grind off the last 2 holes on my BMR bar since I only use stiffer anyways.

We are not reviving every product. Just certain ones. The coil overs will not be making a return.

Yes, everything is continuing just as they were including alignment specs.
