    LoL don't know.

    I noticed, ( and read where others complained) where after adding the C6z06 sway bars it felt under certain deceleration. ( mainly that which did not involve braking) that the rear seemed to feel very light. I never really did much research until i was fixing the wheelhop issue which got much worse with the gear install. but between stock and Z springs thereis well over 100 pounds difference in down force to the tires. So we will see how this goes.

    I've never saw a c5 wheel hop. I don't have a lot of experience with them, though.

    stock ones don't much they have a pretty crappy rear trans mount, it's caused by drive train rotation more than it is spring bind like the old cars had. the leave springs mount transversely, so add power. ( heads cam, intake, headers, and 4:10's. it gets more violent)

    I want something just no clue what.
    You can pick up a C5 reasonable these days. And the ls1 will run forever.

    My spending is being put on hold for a month or two. Seems every few weeks I'm posting a new car on here lol.

    I'm thinking hard on picking up a 1st gen Camaro though.
