Kinda wish I could have kept the fronts, but at least now I have double-adjustable capability on all four corners.
Ah I see. Thanks for the response.

Just FYI.....I did get these QA1's installed last weekend on my car. No issues on installation, fitment was perfect. Very satisfied with everything so far. The ride is very firm. I have the compression set fairly high, and rebound pretty low. The only thing I would say is if you're looking to "slam" your car (a.k.a. lower aggressively), these may not be for you. They will lower the car down a little bit lower than stock....maybe an inch or so max, but that's about it. More than that, and I think it would start to affect the useful travel length of the shock itself. Other than that, I am VERY pleased with my purchase.

It is nice to know that there is another good option for front drag struts for the fifth gen Camaros. We can get these QA1 front struts for anyone interested in them.

Well Hell, if I would have known that, I probably would have bought them through you guys!!! Oh well, you guys have already received a rather LARGE portion of my income!!! I should just start making a monthly allotment direct from my paycheck!!!! More to come I'm sure!!!

But yes, these are a GREAT option for street/strip!!!!

I am trying to get our IT guy to put both these QA1 struts and the Strange struts up on our website so everyone knows we can get them. I know you would have bought them through us if you would have known but you are a loyal BMR customer anyways and we appreciate that. You are never done buying parts and modding these cars, it is a nasty sickness that is not curable.

Do you see the QA1's a a drag specific coilover or should it be also considered a good option for those of us that need something that works at the autocross, road course as well as the drag strip?

In my opinion, a coilover is a coilover. Yes, some brands are better than others. But regardless if it is for drag racing or autocross, they both accomplish the same function in the suspension. And because these are double-adjustable, you should be able to adjust them for either purpose. Drag racing uses a high compression and low rebound. Autocross uses a semi-high compression and rebound. However, as I stated before, these don't really allow for a completely "slammed" look. If you're happy with your stance at stock height or maybe just a little lower, then I'd say these would work very nicely for your needs.
