Lowering the rear of the ZL1 1LE is definitely not the direction you want to go if you are looking to make the ride quality on the street better.

FYI, I am planning to test, on my car, how effective the C7 vented pistons are in reducing temp on these Camaros (SS 1LE, J6M brakes and SS track deflectors, pads will either be DS2500 or DS1.11).
