We knew there would be a lot of interest in headers. For the time being we will be focusing on suspension.

Sorry Karen, but the coil overs are not happening. RideTech is the way to go. They will be at our Open House next month so you can pick their brain.

We will not be bringing back the entire product line but select parts as cash flow allows. We do not want to fall into the same trap that they did and try to do too much too fast.

Yes, I had less than 3000 miles on my car before switching to them. Ride quality feels like stock with the mag ride, but the look is much better (my car in the first post). I never really did hard cornering in the car before hand, but these springs did great at Putnam Race Park (1:22.13 was my fastest lap which isn't bad for the first time being there) and at the Tail of the Dragon.

Chase, we need to talk.

So I love the ride of my ZL1 but want it lower. I was going to buy Eibach Because I was told it was as close to stock ride as you could get. But they only drop the ZL1 like 1/2 a inch. I would really hate to buy these from Apex and then be disappointed in the ride. Are there any thoughts?

I don't recall the exact numbers off the top of my head but I have them on my computer at the office. I will let you know on Monday.

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.
