The ride is very good. Check out the comment in the quote below.

Chase, we need to talk.

I just wish they would have sent me my sway bars, I got everything in my stage 3 kit except those and 510 Race Engineering never refunded my money for them.

Hate to hear about your situation. The ZL Spec sways will be making a return so you will be able to finish your package off before long.

Is there a DYI on swapping the springs on the ZL1? Specifically showing the mag ride connector being disassembled and put back together. Chase do you sell the tool to accomplish this?

Last question, since the ZL1 is 7mm lower than a SS from the factory, is the 1.25 inch dropped measured on an SS or ZL1 ?

Pfadt posted a great DIY on that a while back. Link below.

How to: Unpin your ZL1 Rear Upper Shock Wiring

The 1.25 measurement was initially came from the SS. On the ZL1 I think it is closer to 1 inch.

Yeah, so did we. The sway bar cost A LOT more money to get going so we moved these up. They are still coming though.
