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.

Thanks it's my favorite color of car. Yes there is an slight increase but I don't obsess over listening for it and it disappears when driving, just like the rear end. Neither have been a deal breaker for me. The trade off of noise compared to the increased traction in the rear and handling is well worth it.
