With an after market bar, the same as the noise level, none

1. Is the noise in the front or rear?
2. Did the noise start immediately upon install or did it take a few days and miles to start?

Its in both front and rear and yes took 2-3 days. Around 40 miles. Before I put the endlinks on when I hit small bumps it sounded like the car was falling apart underneath.

If it took a couple of days to start, re-tighten everything. I am thinking one of the lock nuts on the endlink shaft is a bit loose.

The jam nuts , lock nuts on the adjustable endlink threaded rods where they butt up to the ball joint aluminum casting.

ok so I took the car back to the shop, they stated that everyone was still tight and in tact. Do you have any other suggestions. They said that they drove it and when going over big bumps is sounds like the car is bottoming out; this is normal because of the drop springs. My issue is going over the slightest crack in the road that's when I hear the hollow knocking sound and it feels like the suspension is loose.

Do your rear springs have coil wrap on them, or is it just the lowering springs with no wrap?

for stronger more durable ball joints.
to improves sway bar function.
for corner weighting adjustable length endlinks are essential.
are an excellent replacement for anyone tired of the noise from spherical endlinks.

Overall the Camaro is an exceptionally quiet car. Tell us about your noises.
This is the kind of thing that leads me to believe Pete is really a standup guy. He's willing to admit that 'No, my product is not what you need here'.

It's also why I'll be buying my suspension upgrades from him in the spring.

Can't wait!

I think I saw wrap on the fronts, but didn't check the rear... After talking with the shop they mentioned that when they installed the end links they installed them shorter than the OEM links which pulled the front end down closer to the ground; which here in Ohio the roads suck; definitely don't want any lower than it was with Pfadt springs. I was under the assumption that they would be installed the same length as the stockers. could this be my problem? If the springs don't have coil wrap what do you recommend?

when installing the end links on the sways, it should not change ride height, the bar swings freely in the bushings. so making them sorter has no effect, now if one is shorter than the other, some preload will occur and change the ride and handling

Please post pictures of your springs so I can see the coil stacks.
