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

ride is good, stiffer than stock obviously but not bad at all. drove mine from Cali to NY with a buddy of mine and he was surprised at how comfortable the car was.
