When I first drove my 1LE, I thought it was like a go kart with the amazing steering feel and responsiveness (switching from a stock 06 Mustang GT = HUGE difference). I didn't think it could get a whole lot better... until I added those bushes. The radius bushes were the biggest difference. There is no play in the steering whatsoever. Turn the wheel and the car immediately turns. Brakes feel more direct. The subframe bushes helped with stability during corner exit and just having the rear more planted and solid. The 32mm sway bar makes the car more bias to oversteer rather than understeer if you throw it into a corner really hard. Understeer = "TURN DAMN IT!" Oversteer = MORE FUN lol It all depends on how you like your car to drive...

I agree with what you posted as I had similar results when I upgraded my ZL1 with radius arm bushings and sway bars, and rear subframe bushings. The car gives so much more feedback now. I have seen guys blow 1K on things with no return at all except for the memories! This is money well spent that improves upon an already good suspension platform.

P.S.

Cool pics of your car on the lowered Camaro page that has been revived!
