Thanks man! Just ordered. Hope they are worth it! My original shocks only have 9000 miles in them.

Well worth it!! Mine had 6000 when replaced because of the reviews here, and they were right.

Does it smooth out ride comfort also?

I've had mine on for some time now and I was surprised at how much smoother the ride is. Overall they're a good investment.

That was not my experience; an upgrde yes, but not nearly the hype you read on here. Car still rides like a Z06, just more stable in faster turns, spirited driving. Not an appreciable difference in harshness, etc. To be clear, I don't regret the purchase, I needed new shocks regardless.

They also seem to clear up some of the bump steer.

My wife asked what was different about the ride as it was smoothing out the bumps going over bridges etc., not knowing I had replaced the shocks the week prior. That is saying something considering mostly her comments are too loud, too fast, stereo is too loud etc.

Shocks came in today! Opened up the box and to my surprise they gave me a free set of upgraded bushings. Once this heat wave goes away i will install them. I will keep you guys posted once they are on the car.

Man you ain't lying about the heatwave; supposed to be bad thru Sunday. Had a storm come thru last evening and didn't do much to cool things down. Have fun with the install, it's fairly easy and the ziptie method works great. Rule of thumb is to tighten the upper nuts until the bushing swells to the same size as the washer if anyone was curious.

Well I put the shop fan on and went to work! DRM's are installed. Haven't gone for a ride yet, car is still in the air since the new side skirts are coming in on Thursday. Install went well, fronts definitely the hardest. Rears were real easy.
