I hear the sways will make the ride bumpy though. Sure it will handle better however

I got the Pfadt drop springs, sway bars, and end links. I do not think the car rides rougher than it did stock. It just handles a lot better in the turns. It also looks a lot better with the lower stance. Best mod I've done.

Sways generally don't make the car ride any different. They keep the wheels planted around corners and keep the car from "leaning" during the same corners.

Did you need to do an alignment? If so, how off was it? Was it a major adjustment? I am thinking to replace just my springs alone and wondering if I really need to align anything. thanks

I had my car aligned after I did springs. My shop highly recommended it.

After installing lowering springs you do need to get an alignment.

Yes of course, even with only springs you will have to do an alignment.
it took us about 2 1/2 hours. But what we did was install the springs then we loosened all of the suspension and bounced the hell out of it so the bushings can untwist to the new springs, then tightened it back up. Pulled it up on the alignment rack.

Ok one question, since he did the fronts and I did the rears, he said he didnt see any slotted holes in front strut for a camber adjustment, I thought all camaros come with a good enough space for the camber, cuz he said they were just reg hole for just the bolt. Unless he just doesnt remember it?

I got that info from the alignment help thread in the sticky, first post

Quote:
[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Lil-Turk/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-7.png[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Lil-Turk/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-4.png[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Lil-Turk/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-5.png[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Lil-Turk/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-6.png[/IMG]Our quick facts:

· With stock and our sport coils we have seen minute ride height variances, with most cars at or under 1/16” and only one with a corner measurement variance of 1/8”

· Even after 1000’s of punishing street and track miles we have not seen our sport coils settle. We design our coil springs to be low stressed and spec high tensile excellent quality steel to eliminate any possibility of material fatigue. Our coils are preset during manufacturing, compressed to coil bind to ensure proper load height, shot peened to relieve material stress and most important, are made in the USA.

· Below is a picture of the slotted strut mount standard on all Camaros. A good amount of camber adjustment is available without grinding or alignment hole modifications.
