    General Information:

    " For nearly half a century, Chevrolet Performance has been the resource for enthusiasts. Chevy has a decades-long winning track record that today extends to virtually every form of motorsports.

Updates Tour, Sport, and Track modes, and includes independent compression and rebound calibration for front and rear dampers. Thus, allowing for precise control of heave, pitch, and roll under a wide variety of situations to fine tun the vehicle's response. All of these calibrations are developed using shock velocities computed to the wheel, and all have the ability to vary damping relative to vehicle speed.

    lots of confusion as to whether this is free to customer or not. What's the real deal at MacMulkin?

    You sure about that Rob?

    I spoke to Dr. Jamie Meyer at SEMA and he told me it's 350 bucks. Dr. Meyer is the Mgr. of GM's Performance Parts Program and he should know.

    It does say in the bulletin MSRP $350.00, which is supposed to be the manufacturer's "suggested" retail price.

    Default Mag ride upgrade

    I took this bulletin to my local chevy dealer and he said the dealer had to pay $350 and there was an hour labor on top of that. I had a$100.00 rebate from my G.M card. They came down to $300 out the door. They said when they called the tech line on the bulletin they were told they had to pay the $350
    So something is wrong one place or the other

    My experience with my Chevy dealer is that $350 is the dealer price they have to pay plus an hours labor I am seeing free to $350 plus labor. Which is what it cost me.

    Correct me if I am wrong but MSRP means the retail price not the wholesale price the dealer pays. My dealer asked MSRP plus $150 labor.

    .



    MSRP is Manufacturor SUGGESTED Retail Price, they can charge what ever they want. That bulletin price should only include the update and NOT the labor to install it.
