Best lowering kit for a 2014-2015 ZL1

Anyone have a ZL1 dropped on any type of lowering kit? If so which brand and how many inches of drop did you get? I haven't really seen any ZL1 on after market wheels and lowered. If you guys have pics that will be helpful as well

Thanks in advance!

I'm lowered 1". See mods listed in sig.

Was a PIA due to to having to de-pin the mag shocks but I got through it.

If i had a ZL1, I would NOT touch the suspension. One of the few muscle cars that comes with the right stance from the factory. Why mess with a great thing...

Can you elaborate more on the de-pinning process? Is there a tool for this?

Best lowering kit for a 2014-2015 ZL1

There's a write-up on it. I still thought it was a PITA. I can't understand why GM couldn't have made the hole bigger so the connector could be pulled through. I was going to drill it out but I got in a hurry to get it out back together I forgot.

Pfadt springs. I was skeptical at first but I think they're just right after they settled.




This is sitting on 19" wheels with 305/30's all around.

Next it sitting on the factory 20" wheels with factory Goodyear tires.

Love to hear about your rear wing set up... Where did you get it?

It's an APR wing. I think it would be great for Auto Club and Willow Springs.

Might just buy another trunk and install this for track days only.

Thx

That's exactly what I did. I bought another trunk lid, painted it matte black and soldered in electrical quick disconnects so I could easily take it off and on.
