Install is done over at Global West Suspension.. We did need to make some changes to the rears for fitment, but then again that's why these are called prototypes..

Fronts went on easy and the struts all all the right brackets in all the right places.



Testing tomorrow.. We have a bone stock SS there for comparison.

We had to make one revision to the rears, but after that they went right in. Ended up mounting the remote canister to the lower control arm. If we upgrade to a double adjustable it will be easy to get to the knob this way.

There will most likely be changes to the rear units in the production versions. Right now you adjust the shock though a hole in the trunk but they are looking at inverting hte shock and the adjustment on the bottom like the fronts. Personally it's not a big deal for me to adjust them in the trunk, it's not like it needs to be done very often.

It's a process.. but I can't wait to see how it does tomorow.. I will file a report. lol

How did track testing go today?
It's difficult to tell from the angle the photo was taken but the rear spring appears to be very close to the factory upper flange mount. Did you see any spring to mount contact when the rear wheel is cycled from full compression to full droop? The Eibach part number shown is for an 8" long 2.5" diameter spring with 475 lb/inch rate. May be an Eibach 2.25" diameter spring may also fit over the rear shock body and gives more clearance around the upper flange mount. Just a thought.

Those look well made/machined. I like the 1 piece machined mounting body. Also, I like how there is alot of holes for the spanner wrench. Should make adjusting the collar easier.

They will be around $4k for a single adjustable set and around $5k for a double adjustable set, that does not include the springs.
Guesstimate was from a Penske engineer that designed them, I asked, he told, they are looking to get the cost down a little but, they consider themselves to be on the higher end of the market so I doubt they will come down much.
There stuff is sexy and the quality shows.
If I could justify the need for myself right now I'd pull the trigger, they have sets ready to go.
They will have a booth at SEMA with a set to view/touch and a set mounted on a Camaro.
