There's little doubt that Chevy/GM had requirements for making the G3 work with the 1LE's specific chassis tuning (not just the springs/shocks/struts/sta-bars part of the puzzle). Stuff that...

In 18", 18x11 up front, and I think Vorshlag got 18x12's to fit out back. With either 18x11's all around or the 11/12 stagger and no spacers, you'll end up with significantly different front vs rear...

Tires and wheels. Z/28 wheel sizes > 1LE wheel sizes. You really need to outdo the newer car in this respect, not merely keep pace with it.

As did I.

Carbotechs in the lower XP numbers or G-locs between about R8 and R12 have bite (and potentially dust/noise) comparable to HP+ with HPS-ish rotor wear rates. A bit spendy, though.
