Pfadt Suspension questions(zl spec sways specifically)

So I am at 8500 miles and decided to do a little suspension work. I just ordered the 1.25" springs and trailing arm and tie rod package and considering the zl spec sways. Question is on the comparison chart where does the 1le sways fall into line, and I have read that with the ss you need to change the sway bar end links but the zl1 its not required....so what about the 1le, Im hoping I can get away with the oem end links...im kinda tight on money. Also does anyone know what size the zl spec sways are, ive read that with the 1le just to leave the stock front sway bar alone and replace the rear..is the zl setup going to be better to replace both?

It gets a little confusing, but there is an upgrade path for everyone.
  • If you have a 2010-11 V6 or V8 and want to run our Camaro Sport sway bars designed for the 2010 cars, you only need the bars. We do recommend that you upgrade the endlinks for best longevity and performance, but you can run the factory endlinks for a while.
  • If you have a 2012 V6 You can run our 2010 sport sway bar packages for increased performance, and you do not need to upgrade your rear brakes.
  • If you have a 2012 V8/ZL1 You do not want to run our sport sway bar package. The ZL Spec sways are the proper upgrade for you!

according to this they are the same for the ss, 1le, and zl1?

Strut Tower Brace (LT, SS, 1LE) - 22756880
Front Wheel Hubs (ZL1, 1LE) (2) - 22924741
Rear Wheel Hubs (ZL1, 1LE) (2) - 22924740
Front Coil Spring (SS, 1LE) (2) - 92245257
Front Strut (1LE) (passenger side) - 22812984
Front Strut (1LE) (drivers side) - 22812985
Front Sway Bar (1LE) - 22812946
Front Sway End Link (SS, ZL1, 1LE) (passenger side) - 22842515
Front Sway End Link (SS, ZL1, 1LE) (drivers side) - 22842516

Rear Shock Mount (1LE) (passenger side upper) - 22922446
Rear Shock Mount (1LE) (driver side upper) - 22922445
Rear Coil Spring (SS, 1LE) (2) - 92195466
Rear Shocks (1LE) (2) - 22812987
Rear Sway Bar (ZL1, 1LE) - 22786260
Rear Sway Bar Endlink (SS, ZL1, 1LE) (2) - 22761221
Rear Lower Control Arm (SS, ZL1, 1LE) (2) - 20942237 (Needed for 2010-2011 cars for sway bar conversion)
Rear Toe Link (ZL1, 1LE) (2) - 22845487


So are we safe to say if you have a 2012+ V8 it is not necessary to replace end links only recommended

1LE are a direct bolt on, no new drop links required. Just need to get on the backorder list. Waiting for mine and other Pfadt parts. Business must be good especially w/o Pedders anymore.

I believe that is the zl spec rear, what do you have yours set on. Did you replace end links?
