Other than that, car has been bullet-proof. No issues, no squeaks, no rattles. Just basic service - oil changes, one set of new tires.

Car is a blast.
Hi OnPoint - unless it's an aggressive leak I probably would never know if a new shock was leaking. What occurred to let you know the shock was leaking?

Please confine your replies to the Subject and please no bashing. This is an information thread, have requested a sticky so we can monitor issues.
I have a weird clunking noise only when starting from stop or when i slow down to a stop. I dont feel its steering associated because it happens when im not turning as well as turning under the same conditions.

Also have issues with seat coolers turning off after about 10 mins. The light indicators stay on but the cooling function ceases.

Another issue with the radio system head-unit. It lags and sometimes goes “mute” when i have my phone synced on bluetooth and receive alerts from waze. I tried turning the radio off and on and changing sources etc. Wouldnt come back on for like a day.

Does anyone else experience the car kinda jump when putting it into D or M mode from park? Its as if my foot is on the gas instead of the brake when changing gears.

Default problem with drag tires.

i have a 2019 zo6 and installed a pair of nitto o5r drag radials 315/35/20. 5 minutes out of the shop and the power steering went out and all the warning lights came on. rear axel t/c brakes etc. the only light that didnt come on was the tpms. took it to chevy and they said i had to put the same size on as the stock one. should i get the mickey thompson 335 25 20? has anyone had a problem like this?

My 2019 ZR1 front rim did the same thing I finally figured it out Little Rock’s were getting trapped between the caliper and the wheel not much we can do about this

Yes, I have. The 20" Nitto's wouldn't fit on my Z06. The body actually set down on them. They were way too tall. MT isn't producing the 20" drag radials right now and aren't giving any hope for doing so any time ahead. The taller tires sent your car into fits about the tire size difference. I use factory repros in 19X12 and run the 325-30-19 MT's. The Nitto has a 345-30-19 that is a better street tire, but doesn't hook as well as the MT's.

Hi Mate
what was the reason of the diff being replaced
mine currently once a blue moon displays service rear axle , also have you worked out why it’s displaying worn brakes message with only minimal miles , mine also displays this some times but I have a tone of brakes pad left on my carbon ceramics
cheers
