If he painted or had the calipers powder coated to match the paint, it would really set the car off. I like that he kept the factory rims. I kept mine too, just replaced them with a chrome set.

That car has changed a lot since that picture was taken. Here is how it looks now.

I guess I'm more of a subtle change kind of guy. I thought it looked great before.

Nothing wrong with that. The springs alone make the car look a lot better.

The answer to that can vary depending on how far you want to go and how much money you want to spend. If you are looking for a solid street handling package that addresses all of the big bang for your buck upgrades at a reasonable price it would be something like this:

1) Apex Motorsports 1.25" Camaro Lowering Springs - APX1410126

2) BMR Suspension Front & rear Sway Bar Kit w/ Bushings - SB039

3) BMR Suspension Front Radius Rod Bushing Kit BK019

4) BMR Suspension Rear Cradle Bushing Kit, Full Bushing, Pro Version BK024

With these items you will have the lower ride height you are after, flatter cornering, and greater stability especially when cornering, accelerating and braking aggressively. The car will feel more like a sports car than a muscle car. And the best part is that you will still have good ride quality.

Thank you, Chase!
Those are exactly the things I am looking for.
The only mod ahead of the four you mentioned, is the catch-can, and then, i'm off and running with all of your suggestions!

That is a good plan. The sooner you can get a catch can installed the better.

Thanks Chase, between the wheels and springs, it handles a lot less like the heavy pig it is, being a Vert and all. Just waiting on some matching sways....

Another happy ZL1 owner on Apex springs.

I cannot say enough good things about these. The look is perfect to me, not low enough to get into too much trouble and I personally think the ride quality is better than before. I drive the car daily (when I'm home and weather permitting) and i honestly don't think I could have made a better choice. I have had no rubbing issues, no vibrations, no clearance issues with the splitter or anything. I live in western NC so it's definitely not the flattest area to be in and there are some somewhat steep entrances to certain areas. That being said, I am very cautious about how I pull into places. I know this isn't very in depth but I don't claim to be an expert car guy either, just hoping this could help someone who may be in marker for a great set of springs. As you can tell, I had these beastly calipers powder coated as well. Please excuse the not so great phone pictures.
