Started some modifications this evening. I installed a fuel pressure gauge and started the Hotchkis front strut tower brace install. Need to have this stuff done by Friday so I can drive her to our Camaro club meeting.

Pictures will be posted after I'm done. I also hope to have time to finally install the catch can I purchased several months ago.

Great day today, I finished installing the front brace, repaired the front plasma DRLs, installed my Rx catch can and then proceeded to start checking over the latest issue of the GoodGuys magazine that arrived today only to find a picture of my car in one of the pictures. One more mod (line lock) left in the garage to install before I have to start ordering again. Oh yes, I also installed the 20x9" SS wheels with fresh rubber up front that I purchased a fellow Camaro5 member a couple months ago.

Purchased PFADT coil overs and stales steel brake lines for the Camaro today, hope to have them installed by the next auto-x in a couple of weeks. I will finally be able to get another much needed alignment. Next mods will be new rotors and pads.

Your suspension is awsome!
I have re-done all my suspension with BMR sphericals arround Pedders XA coilovers. All I need is the bushing package, roll cage and the strut brace which I see clears your TVS easily. Im waiting to order my strut brace until I decide on whipple or TVS to make sure I dont have a clearence issue...

Thanks, I wanted the Pedders but thought that I would have to drill more holes into my strut tower. I'm really happy with the new strut tower, it's my second one since the first didn't clear the Maggie.

Strike the last question, I just found you build thread, congrats on car of the week!

You sure are going all out. Hope you take home the prize for the autox this year! You definitely deserve it for all the hard work you're putting in. Congrats on the new goodies!

Installed the coil-overs yesterday, now the hard part of adjusting the ride height back to where it was. Big thanks to John who came over to lend me a hand!

Not having much fun adjusting my ride height to where it was before. All I need now is brakes, rotate, wheels, ah you know how it goes. The build is never done.

Video of front and rear suspension after installing PFADT adjustable coil-overs. Video was taken during an auto-x event so these are extreme conditions. Notice how much the tire moves on the rib, it was inflated to 42PSI. There is also some movement in the rear subframe after the upgrade to full BMR bushings. Remember, these are extreme conditions and I would thing there's more stress on the suspension than while running on a track.
