Vengeance Racing Install Pfadt Coilovers/Swaybars/Trailing arms on 2010 Camaro...

Had a customer bring in his 2010 Camaro SS that we recently completed a cam installation on. With the newly added power it was now time for better handling platform for mostly street driving.

Vengeance Racing pieced together a kit that includes Pfadt trailing arms, Pfadt Sport Springs, Pfadt Sway Bars/endlinks & Bushings.


Factory Trailing Arm compared to Pfadt Trailing Arm.


Factory Spring compared to Pfadt Sport Spring


Factory Sway Bar compared to Pfadt Sway Bar



Ride Height post-install.

Ron, thanks for posting this up. That car looks fantastic! What else does your customer have planned for the car? Engine mods or anything? Are they going to be tracking it at all?

My car does really look good with it's new stance and rides like it is on rails. I can tell a dfference in the way it handles but I can honestly say that I didn't give up any ride quality.

I had about a 3 hour ride home after the install and could not tell any difference in ride quality.

The MGW that Ron suggested is totally awesome. I like the positive shifts and simply the way it feels.

With the cam and other things I am pushing about 445 or so to the wheels and she runs great, I have had ZERO problems with any of the work Vengenace has done to my car. I make great power with a smaller cam, have not lost any drivability or dependabilty.

I did have a check engine light, but that was because the gas cap wasn't tight, duh.

I do not plan on doing any track racing, but I may do a lap or 2 at the track fest coming up just to see the difference, but since the course is a motorcycle course it really eats up the tires, so not much of that.

Ron is talking me into a TVS2300 and I will probably make around 600 rwhp, but need to save a few more pennies for that one.

I would like to thank Ron from Vengeance for the hospitality he showed me during this install, great bunch of guys who do awesome work, and to Aaron and Blair from Pfadt for answering many many many questions I had. Sometimes on these forums you get vendors who just want your money and they are gone, but these two Vengeance and Pfadt are really great and continue to answer any question I may have.

Their products are well designed and work as advertised. They just don't " Sell You Parts for the sake of selling you something" which in today's society is refreshing.

Dr. Jkel,
I am happy for you and your Vengeance build. I am having the parts in my signature installed by them on the week of Sept. 27. I am excited about the Pfadt suspension pieces, cam and super charger. I will let you know after it is all done and have driven it a while as to how much you really need to save up for the super charger

I really appreciate it alot, I think you will be totally satisfied with your build from Vengenace. Maybe they will have the twin turbo car close to completion when you are there. I don't know if you have been to their shop but they really take care of your baby, place is always clean and everyone is so nice.

You know the funny thing was when I was at Venegance I met a guy who was having his car worked on, I then realized that he was from Pennsylvaina. Now you know a shop is good when someone comes 10 hours to get work done.

I think it lowered the front 1" and the rear 1.25" It just gives it a little better stance. The pictures don't do it justice and it actually settled just a little bit after the ride home.
