Belltech Performance Handling Kit? Anyone Have Experience?

Hi, just picked up another SS because I'm in love but this time I'm looking to do a more economical build, so rather than going with a 2K+ suspension setup I was just looking to do sways, springs, and dampers. So do any of you have any experience with Belltech or this kit? http://www.vividracing.com/catalog/2...-p-143437.html
I know suspension tuning is a fickle art and I don't want to be wasting money away, thanks!
Edit: Link to the product on their website not vivid: http://www.belltech.com/muscle-car-perf-kit-7.html

Never heard of them, I would be scared to run those parts. The picture is clearly not for a camaro as its shocks and not struts and the sways would never fit.

Go with BMR or LSR if you're on a budget and get some 1LE struts.

The suspenison is different 11 and 12 and it says it fits 10-13 so I wouldn't be too confident in them

Oh I think that's just vivid racing messing up descriptions, this is from their website:
http://www.belltech.com/muscle-car-perf-kit-7.html
(says only 10-11 cars, and picture won't match product)

You need to know what the diameters are of the front and rear bars. Without that information, you cannot make an intelligent decision.
