Im not familiar with phastek spring specs but if their drop amount is the same...there probably isn't any difference. I'd go with what's better on the wallet.

Pfadt 1.25 with BMR sway bars.
I love the way it handles and the ride is great except on some of the roads here in South Jersey are in piss poor shape.
A few speed bumps can give me a little trouble but I will take that as the trade for the more aggressive look.

I have a cam too so that changes the ride. I had my car lowered after the cam and didn't notice much difference. It's a little stiffer but not bad at all. After all my mods I wouldn't change a thing!

Is there really any noticeable NVH transmission in the car with your subframe bushings? Love the black.

I would go with Pfadt for their reputation and they are manufactured in the US.
I do not know who manufactures the springs for Phasetek. I saw earlier in this thread that you wanted to lower 1.5 inches. This is from Pfadt's website.
Pfadt Lowering Springs have been engineered to optimize the factory damping with a 1 to 1.25 drop and increased spring rate. Lower your Camaro more than 1.25 inches and you'll find that the factory dampers no longer work properly, resulting in a bouncy ride.

Thank you sir! Pfadt it is hands down.
