Why are you making this sound like it's a massive undertaking?

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this just a matter of swapping struts/shocks/springs/wheels and coding the car?

That's not the intent. It's to help those like me that want to do this themselves but are not able to locate a DIY that is specific to a ZCP swap. It's actually pretty straight forward. However, I'm sure there are some people who would like step by step directions so they fully understand what's involved before beginning the mod.

I'm also going to do the retrofit soon and I already have the coding done by Mike Benvo.

Maybe you can add details to the following thread for future reference.

Good luck with the retrofit.

Let us know if you need someone to code it properly

I planned on having you do it from day one. However, the reason this DIY is not done and dusted is I purchased the parts from a member on this board and they have not sent them to me yet. I'm starting to get worried. I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt but I can only be so patient. Hopefully my first experience purchasing parts on here is not going to turn out badly. Fingers crossed.
