Default Woke up this morning a proud owner of a 02 SOM z28

Deal went through last night, saw the car this past Sunday at a Show and Shine, my wife fell in love with the color, and i jumped at a chance to get into a Ls1. So far the car came with long tubes, tsp y pipe, ported throttle body, lid, grantelii maf ends. Here you go.....






Here is is getting new tires put on it, switched them from the Lt1 to the Ls1

Nice.

But I am almost positive that the way they lifted your car is not good for our cars. This is putting pressure on different areas such as the plastic block that mounts the front fenders. Tell em to use a jack if they don't have a 4 point lift.

look under the car right behind the front tire at the bottom of the fender, if those tabs are bent it could gap your ffender, it can be bent back but thats not a place for a jack, nice car though

This is true if they just lifted it straight up. However, if they used thick rubber blocks under the pinch welds (not under the plastic area for the front fender), everything will be fine. It would be like a 4 pt lift or using 4 floor jacks. I used to work at Discount tire for 6 years. I would know.
