Stock seals do same thing, they wear out, split. You can get them for $2 at autozone. It is just part of a LS motor.

All c5/c6/c7 have leaf springs and are IRS. Mag ride was not even an option in 2008 for a z06. You would have an adjust knob on the center console for suspension modes. It is just adjustable shocks.

Every single one that has been checked looks like that. Seen at least 10 locally. It's a 100% failure rate. So if that is one in a million your math needs adjustment.

Your tuner should have tuned/adjusted for whatever octane is in the car, so 91/93/etc is irrelavant once tuned. A stock z06 runs fine on 91.
