My wife and I did it on her C6. Removed her 2007 F55 system for QA1 shocks.
The shock simulators won't work. The C6 F55 system does a self test every so often and it expects to see variable results. The shock sims are resistors that return a fixed result which the system sees as wrong. This is all in the service manual if you read up on the F55 system.
It can be done. You will need a Tech2 unit as part of the solution. Some folks seem to be able to make it go away with just the Tech2 software routine. Others not so much.
