  • Z51 coil overs

    So I'm sitting here wondering .............. Will the Z51 coilovers fit a non Z51 w/o the front lift kit ?

    Do you mean just the springs, or the entire spring / shock / adjuster? I think the answer is probably yes, but if you mean just the spring you might also need Z51 spring perches and other parts. And the springs would be mismatched with the base model shocks and front way bar, so maybe not the best approach to improving handling.

      The entire shock assembly. I'm figuring the mounting points have got to be the same. Even if someone has MSRC (FE4).

        I simply have no need for all that comes with the Z51 option. Even my canyon carving days are long gone. Plain 'ol touring x country is the name of the game for me. If the adjustable coilovers will fit, that will allow me to lower the car 2". Plus give the car a better ride. Edit, Decided to go with the 2LT so I can get the two tone red/ black GT2 seats and the Carbon Fiber trim pkg.

          I cant answer your question but from what we are hearing...the standard rear mid engine c8 will be an amazing handling vehicle right from the factory...

          all kidding aside lowering the vehicles really tend to screw up the handling and balance inclusive of ride...unless its a factory operation..

          id recommend z51 if you really want the ease of lowering the vehicle...suspension setups are an art form.

          with z51 you can for 3800 dollars lower the vehicle...($1200 for the npp) 5 grand minus 1200 =3800)

          i never found lowering for the street use was practical...

          i dont look at my cars that long and hard that i ever felt the corvettes I owned needed lowering..

          i realize everyones perspective is different..l

          if you do Im sure down the road someone will figure out how to sell a kit to lower the vehicle. Could cost close to the same 3800 dollars

          good luck deciding..l

          Torch Red exterior/ black interior z51 FE4 2LT or 1LT depending on when i get the call..Ill flip a coin at that moment..same for E60

            Yeah that. I never thought of factoring in the NPP cost when bought separately. That makes more sense, especially when one factors in the labor cost at $75/80 an hour. I thank you for the suggestion.
