Default LG drop spindles

I had the LG drop spindles installed yesterday and picked up the car today. It really looks better being an inch lower with these. I also feel like I am definitely sitting lower while driving the car. The ride is no worse from the stock setup. Actually handling feels better since the LG spindles have a mono ball upper pivot point.
We are so lucky in the SF Bay area to have Abel Chevrolet and Rich Willhoff and his crew to take care of our vettes. They took great care of the car and did an outstanding job on the installation. Had the car completely realigned after the install. While it was in I also had an oil change and had them change the rear diff fluid.

Why C7 ZR1 has No hydraulic suspension

Once you engaged the race mode the car will drop 1-2 inches

I have been considering lowering mine I just don't want to buy a new front splitter. Please let me know if you are having any scraping issues.

I am not having any issues but I was always careful about scraping the splitter to begin with. You just have to be aware of any situation that may be a problem. I love the look and handling of the car with the drop spindles on it.

Had LG drop spindles on my C7Z and have them on my C6 track car. The only way to properly lower the car with factory suspension.
