is the suspension between a zx3 and an svt really THAT different ???

i thought it was just different dampers, springs, and swaybars ?

that shouldnt change geometry any where a set of traction bars wouldnt be interchangeable

Its not the that different but I recall it has something to do with how the tranny is mounted.

lakewood makes the traction bars for the zx3, but from what i understand they have a seperate "middle" bar for the SVT, just let CFM know you have an SVT and they'll make sure the correct middle bar is in your box.

this is all IIRC lol

I think the header does cause a fitment issue. ^^ is correct William at C.F.M is amazingly helpful. Just call him up and he will make sure you get the right stuff.
