I am horrible about taking before and after pictures, so I apologize in advance. I had my Black Ops Road Magnets, End Links and Control Arms installed yesterday.

My mechanic was impressed with the quality of all of the products. So I am very happy to hear that from him. I haven't gotten a chance to really test out the difference in body roll yet but I will be sure to do so soon. On my drive in this morning, I felt like these actually provide a smoother ride. With the stock suspension I'd always have to "brace for impact" when going over a bump. Now... it seems to take those bumps easier. I am happy w/ the look and can't wait to decide on some wheels!

And here are some good ones of a recent photoshoot of our 700+WHP Z06 and my D, doin work (that was on our way to TX2K15)

Perfect stance! Did you have it aligned yet? Any issues with getting it back to OEM specs or are you running a bit of negative camber?

Thanks guys!

I did already get an alignment. I will post the specs tonight. The front is as close as possible, still a little bit of neg. camber. Next upgrade - adjustable upper control arms. Any recommendations?

I couldn't remember exactly what my mechanic had said, besides needing control arms. Looking @ my alignment sheet, now I can see what he was talking about.

Camber is all back to factory specs:
FL: 1.7
FR: 1.8
RL: 1.4
RR: 1.5

Caster, couldn't get back in line w/ factory specs
FL: 6.0 - factory was 6.3
FR: 6.3 - factory was 6.6

Thumbs up! My wife is on board to drop ours. I wonder how the ride and drop is with just springs alone. Package gets a little pricey with all corresponding components.

Exactly what I'm thinking as well. Not sure why there's such a small offering of springs for this car. They look great lowered! I want something that is 1/2 way between stock R/T height, and these Black Ops units.
