For around $1000 you can get a really solid start with a good foundation for what your looking for! I purchased the BMR Level 1 kit which is 1" lowering springs and front & rear sway bars. I also added the BMR subframe inserts, Pedders front radius rod inserts, BMR end links and BMR trailing arms. I have yet to install everything so I haven't been able to try it all out! I just followed the advise from Pedders and BMR who I think would both agree to start with this setup for a good foundation. If you decide to race then the next thing would be bushings and maybe coilovers in place of the springs.
Not a Camaro but it works for now!
