Do you have coilovers on your Camaro?
 
I have decided to replace my drop springs with coilovers. Please tell me what you have (brand, model), what you like and what you don't like. I have searched and read about everything I could find but I'm looking for a little more insight. Don't really care about the price. Usually when comparing products there are many differences other than features. Driveability, performance, finish, ride quality, installation, warranty, etc. Do you regret the purchase, or wish you had done something different.:iono:
thanks....

We are running a special on KW for the rest of the week all kw coilovers are dyno tested you will have a great ride with anything you get from them!

KW V3, Pedders xA, Pfadt..............Soon Eibach R1 or R2??????

Which one to install? Honest opinions from end users would be most helpful.

I am waiting on Eibach R2's, second choice is Pfadt, I think they are priced the same, but R2's adj. both ways.

Why are you replacing your Pedders lowering springs?

I like the looks and the performance of the springs (handling). However the roads in Atlanta suck, when I hit a bridge abutment on the interstate, a pothole, or even the dips common around here, I bottom out. Pedders doesn't recommend cutting the bump stops, for fear of damaging the stock struts.
I want the best of both worlds, ride and performance along with lower looks.
I started getting a little better mileage when we lowered it too.

I have the Pedder's Extreme Xa Street package which has their Xa coilovers and they are terrific. Highly adjustable so you can make fine adjustments to get the stiffness and handling exactly the way you want it. Ride is fine; feels like normal. You don't lose ride quality when you adjust the height which is great. You can soften or stiffen up the response one or two clicks at a time until it's perfect. Has quite a range of adjustment too, not just 3 settings like "soft, medium, hard". You have (if I remember right) about 30 clicks of adjustment you can play with.

The Pedder's coilovers look way better than the stock shocks and springs. In addition they are 7.5 lbs lighter each in the front, and 2.5 lbs lighter each in the back so you save weight too.

Since I won't be racing at the track, etc... I opted to save the moo laa on the KW 1
's vs the KW 3's. The savings is going towards the supercharger!
