Default My 2001 Corvette

Last week I purchased my first Corvette. All of the mods were done by its previous owner. I'm gonna raise it slightly due to the roads here and it rubbing my driveway. It currently has a catback with no mufflers. A bit too loud for my taste so this weekend I'm having a Corsa system installed. Other than that, she runs strong.

Mods already done:
Englandgreen Mayhem II cam 234/245 630 lift 113lsa, ls7 lifters, ls2 chain, ati underdriven pulley, lunati gold valvetrain, high volume oil pump, OBX headers, BBK 80mm throttlebody, 5 angle valve job, Spec stage II clutch, Short throw shifter, Dual cone intake, carbon fiber air bridge, Corsa catback, HID xenon lights, MSD coils and wires, custom sounds, Dropped 2" front 2 1/2" rear, Drilled / slotted rotors, Dark *** tint, tune by BSM hawaii

Glad to be a member here and look forward to learning about these cars.

That stance is perfect.

Lowering kit? (Bolts)?

Thanks everyone.

I'm new to Corvettes but not cars. It appears that longer bolts were installed in the rear. The front bolts were removed. I'm gonna raise the back an inch and install the front bolts and raise it 1 1/2". Right now the front air dam is 1/4" above the ground when level.

It also has the Z51 suspension.

It has Z51 Shocks?

Can you lost more pictures before you raise it?

Appreciate it.

I'm not sure. It does have Bilstein shocks but I don't know what type. I love the look but can't deal with it rubbing all the time.

I've seen that car before.

I'm surprised the previous owner sold it.

I've seen him post on LS1tech often. He loved that car.

He's a cool guy. We all change our priorities. I've sold a blown/forged 2009 Challenger SRT and last week my stroked Harley, neither of which I ever thought I would get rid of. Sometimes we decide to move on to different things.
