2 New 1LE Suspension Kit Part Numbers

I don't know if anybody's posted this up or not, but I got my 2014 Chevrolet Performance Parts Catalog yesterday and there's 2 new part numbers in it for 1LE suspension kits. I don't know why, but I don't think that the 1LE rear cradle bushings ever became available in 2013 and that kept the 2013 1LE suspension kit from becoming available. I know that Parts Taxi was selling all the parts, except the rear cradle bushings, in a kit. It looks like for 2014 GM has left the rear cradle bushings out and gave it 2 new part numbers, one for V8 apps and one for V6 apps. It looks like the only difference between the two is that the V6 kit includes the front springs. I checked the part numbers on GMPartsDirect and both numbers are pricing at $1144.50, which makes me wonder why anyone would buy the V8 kit. The notes say that the V6 guys will also have to upgrade to the V8 brakes(Part#'s 23120542 and 23120543) to use the kit. It looks like they have changed the part numbers for the front struts also. I don't know if that means that they have improved them, but maybe...

The new numbers are:

Interesting. Not that it's a big deal or anything, but they're tossing in a Chevrolet Performance emblem for under the hood. p/n 22942442 Lists for $31.60



But doesn't the SS already have this emblem or did they drop that? I know 1LE and ZL1 already do, and I'm guessing the V6 doesn't?

Yeah, there's quite a story behind those emblems. GM installed the "GM Performance Division"version on the early 2010 SS's, but dropped them on the late 2010's, 2011's, and 2012 SS's. They reappeared on 2012 ZL1's and 2013 SS's. But, sometime during the 2013 model year they switched to the bowtie version you have pictured. I guess they are including them in the kits for the V6 guys and the late '10-'12 guys who didn't get them.

Yes, the 1Le Kit was made available especially for pre-2013 Cars!

I've been taking to a near by dealer and they don't seem to be savey or enthused enough to know which part number to use for my 2012 v6. Any inputs or suggestions?

Before you buy a 1LE kit, check out the Z/28 Light Kit.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...t=z%2F28+light

"So I just took her to the local xxxxxx that has a nice little paved oval (parking lot) out front and did some hairpin turns. O.....M.....G Holy Shit does it turn. Better now on cold tires than before on hot tires!!!!!" according to Bill. We'll hear more from Bill after his day at Watkins Glen.

Bill Hurd likes to run his 1LE at Watkins Glen International. For road course use his most valuable modification to date has been his StopTech brake upgrade. The next step is to improve his grip. We are approaching that in several ways.

First we are upgrading to Z/28 springs. The rates are much higher. They are very similar to the set we had been using for years on coilovers. Nick Grossman has retail kit #1. He and his wife Melanie drove their Z/28 light Camaro from Virginia to Indiana and loved the changes.

The dampers are not a perfect match to the coil, but they work quite well. Too bad the rear Z/28 coil is 3/4 of an inch too short to fit on a 1LE rear strut. That would stop most companies or shops, but not JPSS. At JPSS we don't let little things like that get in the way of a great upgrade. We use a little 'Black Magic' and make it work.

Up front we'll be installing Black Magic Caster Lock for a gain of 1 degree. We'll also install Billet Bushings in the radius rod to reduce dynamic caster changes. Up top we'll instal Knock Out Camber plates. We should really call them SAI plates. Adding Steering Axis Inclination improves straight line stability and the return to center after a turn. You cannot imagine how sweet it is to drive with increased caster and SAI.

We'll be swapping out the 1LE front 27mm sway bar and installing the almost 24mm SS front bar. We'll add our OE Quiet HD High Efficiency Endlinks to the new SS bar. This will allow the 1LE to rotate more. It isn't snap oversteer. We like to call it aggressive rotation. As they say in the movies, loose is fast.

On the alignment rack we'll be aggressive road course.

Front Camber -2.50
Front Toe OUT 0.50
Rear Camber -1.25
Rear Toe IN 0.12

Z/28 Light Parts List
GM 1LE Struts
GM Z/28 Coils
GM Front or Rear Sway Bar Depending on Model and Year
JPSS Billet Radius Arm Bushings
JPSS Caster Locks

JPSS ships the kit fully assembled using your old mounts and hardware. We turn around the kits in 72 hours or less. We can also build a kit from scratch, but the new mounts, insulators, etc... are expensive.
