Correct.

The ride is stiffer but understanding that I was upgrading to a track oriented suspension and lowering the car 1" overall that was expected. With that said I did make a 2-1/2 hour drive home afterwards along the 101/134/210 fwys and the ride was good.

Here is where you should be for improved handling over the OE specs with minimal increase in front tire wear and a decrease in rear tire wear.

Front Camber -1.00
Front Toe 0.00
Rear Camber 0.00 to -0.50
Rear Toe IN 0.12
Rear Total Toe IN 0.24

This will improve straight line stability, on center steering feel and turn in.

Ok,

So according to the sheet they gave me I'm at -.7 front chamber. I need to be at -1.00 camber. Have them zero out the front toe.

Rear camber looks good. Rear toe looks close to what you posted.

Once I upgraded to Hotchkis Sway Bars & Springs, FE4 Struts Front and Rear my car dropped about 1.25 inches and I noticed a difference in cornering! I can tailfish very easily when I hit a corner. I prefer oversteer over understeer.

Ok,

So here's a video of how well the 1LE suspension works on the V6!

Enjoy!

Awesome build. I've seen mixed opinions that for the 1LE package to work on a bone stock V6, the SS Brembo brake upgrade is necessary. Some say it is, some don't mention it. The Chevrolet Performance website has two different part numbers for upgrading with the 1LE package (23123398 for V6 & 23123397for V8) and doesn't mention needing to do anything to the brakes to make components fit in the description. Can anyone comment on this?

Thx for the complements.

From what I've seen the V6 rear brake calipers are wider than the rear Brembos. This would interfere with the rear 1LE sway bar.

The earlier 1LE kits had the rear cradle mounts as part of the kit. I see now they have removed that part of these 1LE upgrade kits.
