Hey y’all, I have the ZR2 2.8 and am wondering what I need to replace my shocks with… I have a leak in back left and front left is moanin and groanin. Any advice on what shocks are bolt on for the ZR2 would be much appreciated. Either that or a lift kit that replaces everything 😁

What year/how many miles? I'm assuming you must be outside of the warranty period if you're asking about aftermarket replacements, but wanted to make sure. I haven't seen much in terms of alternative ZR2 dampers, from what I can tell the lower mounts are different so there aren't really any "generic" replacements.

It’s a 2018 and unfortunately just passed the warranty period 🥲I drive a LOT and just moved across the country, which did me in on the warranty. I’m thinking fox shocks may work for rear? Dimensions are nearly identical, “nearly” being the trouble word. So wondering if I may need a lift and rear shocks to make it work. The king and icon shocks look like the closest to bolt on but at $3,000+ that just isn’t in the books right now, unfortunately. DSSV’s also being so expensive doesn’t help🫤 I loveeee my ZR2, just wish more was available in terms of mods and upgrading components

Rears should be no problem, any aftermarket shock that will work with a 2" lift should be fine I'd think. The problem you're going to run into is with the fronts.

As of last year Peak was working on rebuild kits for the DSSV shocks but I'm not seeing it on their site yet, you might try reaching out to them and asking about the status.

That’s a good idea, I also had seen peak potentially doing rebuilds. Upsetting that Tacos have so many bolt on options and we don’t have **** 🥲
