The new gen mag ride in the Blackwing (and C8) no longer has a sensor for suspension displacement so there is nothing to zero. It's entirely based on velocity of shock movement which is taken from a sensor on the back of the hub.

We could probably debate suspension geometry and whether lowering the car is actually a good idea for handing, but that's another discussion.

I'd agree, I'm not sure there's any benefit to be had handling wise on these cars from lowering springs. Almost purely aesthetic, which I'm content with. It does feel more stable at speed though, which is an added benefit, but that could also be due to the more aggressive camber.

Oh they are a bolt on type. I would probably only use slip ons if it was 10mm or less personally.


You know, I'm not aware of anything. I can tell you the system is working as factory. I would be surprised if it did, as all the mag ride feature is contained to the strut. So as long as you still have full range of strut travel, I can't see it making any difference.
I’ve had my swift springs on for a few months now and haven’t had any issues with the magride or calibration needed. And completely agree with you above, way better than stock imo

Ordered my set of springs... too bad they are on backorder.
