I lowered my Zee 1+" I actualy cut the rubber bushings both Frt & Rear, The car now measures 26-3/8" frt 27" rear,(measured center of wheel, floor to fender lip) I would be very interested in what the height is of some of the other members cars?
And yes, I think all corvettes need to be lowered!They look so much better! My car drives and rides great, especially since adding the Bilstiens.

Took mine to the stops, and it came down 3/4". I like the looks, the ride did change a little, but it's still ok.

Has anybody checked the weight balance at the corners before lowering?? In hind sight I should have done a b4 & after....oh well.

Thought this was supposed to be "Z06" height. Didn't know they made the Z06 in 2000.





Jim

I will measure mine and post later.

Well, I can run out and measure my ride heights since I am sitting in a hotel room in Orlando.
But, I do know that my Z dropped 3/4" after lowering as far as I could without cutting the bushings.

If you want, I can run out and check the ride height of the Escort rental I am driving.
