Yet another Brand dilemma

Hey guys,

I'm planning to do Suspension on my 2010 camaro ss M6 600+ RWHP. I'm not into drag racing at all. Some street racing from time to time that is all. Came across various brands and of course different prices and i thought i will get an expert point of view.

1) BC ($ 999). (leaning to get this one due to $$)
2) Kw variant 3 ($ 1984).
3) Pfadt ($ 2099).

Not planning to lower my ride at all. Just planning to to limit body rolling in corners and at WOT.

appreciate your input.

I've heard good things about them. But last night I've read somewhere that BC actually are manufacturing their coil over and that is why i did not include them in the list.

Out of those three options I personally like the KW coil-overs. When we were previously doing a bunch of handling stuff with our 2010 Camaro we had the KW variant 3 installed and they worked and performed flawlessly. Now the KWs are a bit on the pricey side but they are worth it IMHO.

Fastest three Camaro on the Drag Strip at Camaro5FEST ran on Pedders. Two on Lingenfelter Drag Coilovers by Pedders and exclusively available at Lingenfelter and one a Pedders Supercars. Fastest 5th Gen Camaros at C5FEST CamaroCross and on the OPTIMA Challenge all run on Pedders.

Here is the Pedderised IRS of the Lingenfelter L/28 running at Putnam Park with speeds reaching 150 MPH. It is the picture of stability under full race conditions.



Danny Popp at the OPTIMA where we earned 1st Place overall.



The Raymond's Performance OPTIMA Camaro testing at Putnam Park.



This is Paul Tracy driving the Pedders USA Camaro at our first OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational. There were other brand-x suspension MFG cars at the event. Not one came within 5 seconds of our road course time in 2009 and none have come close since.



How good are Pedders parts? Good enough for Richard Petty. Good enough to be on every Camaro Pace Car that saw track time at INDY and NASCAR and to allow us to install them at the Milford Proving Grounds. Good enough that Pedders was on 20 out of 25 Chevrolet at the 100th Anniversary of Chevrolet at SEMA last year. Good enough that I'll personally guarantee you'll be thrilled with them or I'll refund your money.
