How much higher was the rear than the front before the install compared to after? Rear sits a bit higher than front from factory. Were all of the bushings "timed" properly during install? Torqueing...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the auto diff is different and you would need the rear half of driveshaft and back (all the way to hubs) to make it work, plus you'd lose your limited slip. Not...

A resonated x-pipe would help reduce rasp/high-pitch frequencies but would also quiet the exhaust a bit; resonators also help reduce rasp by cancelling out high-frequency sounds waves so I'd leave...

285/35 (are they 285/45 or 35?) on 20x10 front and 305/35 on 20x11 rear are the factory ZL1 tire and wheel sizes so they're probably 10 and 11 wide.
