I have taken this into consideration. 2012+ cars will need a 14GA spacer to get the top plate above the hood strut bracket. The bracket leaves no room for the top plate to sit flush to the shock tower.

put me on the list for notification, after lowering my strut mounts are popping like crazy (stock 2010s are known to have this) and was going to get the updated 2012+.. this would eliminate that need and give more benefit.

Interested and sub'ed I was upset when PFADT closed their doors and I couldn't get theirs. I wanted a solution that would allow me to continue to use my magnetic ride shocks with the PFADT springs. I'm glad someone posted the link to here...

I am hesitant due to several companies going under. Then having to get another brand that may require more holes drilled into the tower, after a while it won't look good and will need to be redone.
Looks to me like you should drive a Bone Stock Camaro. Too many "what if's" It's impossible to predict what will happen with the mods we do to our cars. Shops and manufacturers come and go all the time.

Right on! The way I look at it, technology evolves daily. Once something really better comes along us "gear heads" will upgrade anyways so whats a few holes. If these camber plates are nice pieces and work really well, I would most likely buy a second set anyways. Things will break over time if used to the extreme.

Keep working on it Justin.

I'm in lust, and haven't even brought my car home yet.. Would love to see the finished product. Drilling holes in a 76k car? I'm up for it.

Justin Moreno do you know how much this may lower the car? i have a set in the 2010 and a set in a box for the Z, but i think the set i have will lower the front to the point the tires will hit the fender, what do you think?

You guys seem eager! LOL. sorry to disappoint. I revised the design earlier to not need any drilling! This also allowed for more versatility in the design.

Ride height will be unaffected, as I made the stack height the same as OEM.

Obviously you didn't understand what I was saying.

My car is not stock and will continually receive upgrades.

Well the poll seems to be closed - however if they'll fit on a 2012 V6 2ls and no drilling(I'm not opposed to drilling - had to do it on a mustang one time) sign me up!

Very interested. I don't recall if there is any 'issue' with lowered fronts. If not, these look awesome!
