Where are you getting your alignments done?
Firestone Lisle on Ogden Ave. The tech there, Kevin there is a racer and takes care of me. I usually get under/beside the rack with him while he's doing it. I paid for lifetime alignment, well worth it.

Ridetech HQ coilovers installed! So far I'm really enjoying them. I went with 425 lb fronts and 550 lb rears.

Yes I have done all of that myself.

For mounting tires, Kevin at Firestone does a good job, but I'd also consider taking them to AAA Wheaton Car Care Plus. One of the TMO guys that I've become friends with is a service manager there and he mounted my 305 RE71Rs for me, and did a great job.

Added a GT350 Track Pack spolier! With the black hood vents, it looks great and I'm excited to see how it performs.

Next up: ZL1 Add-ons splitter extension like @Biggsy did recently.

2020 has brought good fortune to the build! Cant wait until we get through these times and see the car perform with the new set up

So I guess you're on the hunt for a PP belly pan and splitter ?

They've been on the car for 3 years already :). I can bolt up the ZL1 add-ons extension.

What was the reason behind going with Ridetech ? Also why only 550 lb rears (know that is real coilover) ? And can you show pictures on the back coils to see how far are the springs from half shaft boots ?

Looks great! I'm pretty sure i'm going to replace the "swing" on my 2019 with this..... don't like the raised spoilers at all. Really clean look.
