ZL1 and ZL1 1LE race ramp questions

Anyone have experience with zl1 1le and race ramps? Looking to pick up a set and am curious if the 67 XT versions will work with no front splitter scrape - or would I need to go to the 72" ramps? A few other questions: 1 piece or 2 piece version? How many wheel chocks should be used 2 or 4?

Thanks

There are some posts about Race Ramps in this section, and the 67 inch version will work. The 2 piece version allows you to remove the rear portion of the ramp for easier under car access. I'd think 2 chocks would work, since the car is lifted in the front or rear while on the ramps.

I thought that I saw the people saying the 56" race ramps clears the ZL1 but its close. I want to get a set to do oil changes.

56" clears on my 18 ZL1 by about 1/2", maybe a little less.

Thats what I though, even if it didnt I guess you can add a 2x6 in front to so its stepped a little bit.

Really I hope the 56" race ramp clears my other car...ha TBD I guess.

I have the 56” ramps, the rubber air deflectors just barely rub on the ramps (non-1lE ZL1).

The longer they are the better the angle and less chance of scraping i have the 67 and they don't hit. but from above looks like 56 will work also

Do these give enough clearance to get under the car to change oil?

Anyone with the 56" Race Ramps back up on to them to say service the rear diff? If so, did the front end clear the ground? I can try it, but haven't yet.

For changing oil I use the Race ramp wheel cribs and chock the rear tires.
I was lucky enough to find these at a local car swap.
To lift the car I use the ZL1 addons universal Jackpads

This works great for all my cars and much easier to store and move around.

Hmmmm. So, you jack the car and put the wheel cribs uner, then jack thebotherbside and do the same? Why not just use the ramps?

I have the zl1 add-ons jack pads installed.
