Lowering on stock bolts

For those who have lowered their C5 on stock bolts, can you tell me what effect or impact this has ... on driveability, ride quality, handling, and/or wear-n-tear on suspension components?

None...

"Some" will say harsher ride, need alignment, etc......

A 1" drop won't do much to affect anything to worry about.

As for "driveability, ride quality, handling, and/or wear-n-tear on suspension components" no change at all. You may feel the car runs a bit flatter around a turn at 65-80 mph, but other than that, NO CHANGE at all.

It DOES however look much better...
Lowered on OEM bolts. ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
