By the way I ordered the ER series of BC coil overs that just became available for the Camaro last week from my understanding. I'll post after the install.
Let us know how it feels after you test.

The open ratching wrench helps but make sure you get one where the wrenching end isn't too big or else it won't fit over the nut.

I read about another method that someone else used and it seems pretty good without having to get a open wratcheting wrench. There is a nut on the inside portion of the swaybar endlink. Hold that nut and use a normal ratching wrench with the correct size socket and it should crank out that way as well.

If you get stuck, just let me know.

Get a whole set of metric Gear Wrenches. They come in handy everywhere

There is a DIY write up on C5 that walks you through everything. I didn't have to refer to anything outside of what was in the writeup to get it done.

They get low too :p(disregard dirty car, hadn't cleaned it from the install the night before.) i've got my dampening on like 16 turns up front, and 20 in the rear, and i am thoroughly impressed with these BC coils.
