Thanks for the precise information, John!
Same procedure...yes. If you adjust the ride height on the stock bolts, I recommend having the alignment checked. Some have needed an alignment and some have not.If lowering on stock bolts then no wheel alignment needed?
Is this the same procedure for the Z06 as well?
Hey elegant,After I lowered mine, had it aligned. Tech said it definitely needed alignment (but he is as precise as I am) -- and he could not say that the need for that alignment was because of it being lowered some. At the factory, they only align within an "acceptable range, not to GM's actual recommended settings.
Of course, the more you lower, the greater the chance of it needing alignment, i.e., if you lower it all the way, I would always get an alignment. Jag said it excellently, that after lowering, some need an alignment, some do not, but with about $1,000 for front tires alone, a 4-wheel alignment is a cheap investment.
Congrats on getting your new C7! You did not indicate the lifting range on your existing jack. 13" clearance for the jack stand is in the normal range, and most hydraulic jacks should be able to lift your car high enough to get the stands inserted.Hello everyone I finally got my vette last Friday. I am trying to follow these procedures to lower my car on the stock bolts. I have one question, I am attempting to put the jack stand under the transverse composite leaf spring, my jack stand is 13" minimum clearance, do I need a different jack stand or can I jack the car up higher?
