Weird Handling issues with Pedders
 
I recently installed Pedders ZL1 spec sways (FE4 conversion) and XA coilovers on my 2010 SS. I already had a full bushing kit installed. I have the coilovers set to 10 front, 8 rear (from full soft).

When the car goes over some road to road transitions while turning, the inside rear wheel loses contact with the road surface causing it to spin. And the rear end seems unsettled on bumpy cornering. I tried disconnecting the rear sway with no change in behavior. I then put the coilovers to 0 front and rear. While this helped a great deal, I still get the inside rear wheel contact issue.

Has anybody else had similar issues? With the coilovers at 0, the suspension still seems rather stiff and there is NO bouncing.

Several of us have had similar issues. Here's mine:

I think the deal is that your car is now STIFF and it's not all that hard to unweight a wheel. I have gotten used to it and learned to mostly drive around it. So while it annoyed the crap out of me at first now it's just normal and the handling improvement is well worth the compromised civility.

We know it is not the sway bar becuase we did a test with eclipsen. He removed one sway bar link and the car drove the same way. It is my guess we have a bind in the rear suspension for whatever reason. Eclipsen and I are trying to get him to on of my super dealers that not only install suspensions but actually build race car suspensions. It is an unusual issue and one that we want resolved by an expert.
