Pfadt sport sways (one point front, 3-way FE3 rear)

Rear is on full stiff. I just installed it that way, I liked how it felt so I left it.

I have a ZL1 front end and will be installing ZL1 rockers shortly on my SS.

The difference is that I do not have any SS or ZL1 badges on the car.

It's your car, do what you want.
