So ,
Does the new LT1 have the same suspension, cooling and brakes as the SS ?
Many were saying that this new low cost V8 would be missing a lot of those things. some were saying NO the V8 should be the same as the SS. Do we have that answer yet ?
Thanks

It has the same suspension but like many of us guessed, it does not have the same cooling. No external engine oil cooler, no extra capacity cooling system, no auxiliary engine coolant cooler, no rear diff cooler.

It does have Brembos but FRONT only. Rear brakes are standard LT brakes.

It really is a base LT with the LT1 V8 dropped in. The only real upgrades(other than engine and transmission) over the LT are the base SS suspension, the front Brembos and the 20" wheels(instead of 18").

So, if I’m reading this correctly, the A8 is no longer available with the V8 cars. The A10 is the only available option for an auto trans, even on the LT1. Is that correct?

Most said it would not have the SS suspension and the Brembos were not standard, but an option. It's basically a SS minus the extra cooling and standard rear brakes. It won't have the cooling for the track, but should make a great street car. Disappointed it doesn't have active rev match though.

It's sort of a combo - Steel gets Shock stripe and Shock gets Steel stripe.

LT1 is like the 3rd & 4th gen Firebird Formula - engine, trans, susp of a Trans Am, in a base coupe looking wrapper - a factory sleeper.

Get NPP, 275s on the back, de-badge it, get a body-color hood vent, and go hunting.
