The lowering idea had me worried since I don't wanna wear out springs and struts. I guess it all depends on the price because I don't necessarily mind lowering the car. I just don't wanna mess up the lowering and end up having a car too low to the ground.
Springs donít wear out. Donít know how many miles on your car , but shocks last 50000 plus. You can get taller tires I guess. You have 275/35s on zl1 wheels? They will be ok on the front wheels, getting a bit narrow on the wider rear wheels. May not be safe. The 1le 285/35 tires are stretched on that size rim. Better look into it to be sure

My rims are 20x9 in the front and 20x10 in the rear. I researched that 275s are okay for 20x10, so I wasn't too worried about it. But anyways, my car only has 48k miles on it, still pretty new haha

Ah. Thought you said you had zl1 wheels. Yeah your fine as is. With that many miles on the shocks, personally I would just lower it if thatís what you want. Shocks will go soon enough anywY
