Default Aldan Coil Overs

We ordered Aldan Coil Overs for our 06 ZO 6 in Dec. We now have finally got to the point of installing them. The fronts went on no issues, then the rear ??? the upper plates are left and right, and we received two rights My Wife got on the phone (Sun.) to Mike at TPS Motorsports, received a call back that day, said he would take care of it. My Wife got a call first thing Mon. from Aldan and was told the left plate would be shipped out next day air. Received the part before noon today !!!!!!!! Great service from TPS Motorsports and Aldan America !!!!!

I feel ya.... Still waiting on Black Dog to repair, re paint my hood as it was slightly damaged in shipping... Both corners were chipped as they packed it upside down,, Sent it back and it has been 4+ weeks... Had to put it back into the mold, take it back down to CF and re paint... Communication has been less than stellar... I can't wait to get it back. I was told today by the "painter" that is is complete and ready to be shipped. Have heard nothing from BD...

just got back from another test run, drives a bunch firmer, I would guess the bushings would add to the firmness (plus the tires were up to 34 psi) ?? still not happy with ride height, back on the ramps !!! we are running Rival S ,,, 315/18 in front and 335/18 in rear !!!

done with another ride height adjustment, getting very close to desired !!! The Wife and I both feel the ride has improved, think the bushings/
suspension may have settled in ?????? test and tune Sat. and first AutoX Sun. can't wait to see how it will handle ????
