Buying the BCs is a no brainer if thats your budget. But why would anyone pay so much more for the same product? I think BC should get a better rep for offering the same product at a lower price. Hell, maybe I should try them out!

BUt it looks to me the that other companies making suspension products for the new Camaro make their own designs, which is sweet. Pfadt and KW mainly from what I can see. Pretty sure Eibach too. Can you PM me with a price on these BCs?

I drove whitesides car today and all I can say is silky smooth. I will be replacing my Eibach springs with coilovers as a Christmas gift to myself.

Christmas is still a long way off, maybe call it a Labor Day gift or Halloween gift, theres always Thanksgiving, why narrow yourself down to only giving yourself a gift on Christmas :-)

Are there no pillowball mounts on the fronts? Thought I saw a picture of BC's with the slotted pillowball mounts?

These will probably be my next mod as well. Unfortunatley it will probably be tax return money next March before I can get them. Several months away but unless something comes up or some money starts growing off a tree that's a soon as I can expect for now.

Untill then I'll be drooling on DHSS' when he get's them.

I only have them installed by Mike for a couple of weeks and have been too busy to use them, but for the miles I have put in, the ride is amazing. The only draw back so far is my tendency to go too fast into a curve, any curve....I need to take a driving course on a track to see how far I can push this thing. Accelerating into a curve and the vehicle is perfectly flat and neutral.

I know just what you mean. I installed a Hotchkis chassis brace last weekend and the difference in the way the car feels has me pushing it harder now than before. I go in on Saturday for mine and I can only imagine how this car will handle when Mike is done.

kbui - It's very smart of you to consider taking a driving course so you can get more familiar with the limits of your car. If you haven't already done so, a good autocross event with a local club would be very benficial. You can typically get instruction and you get to practice in your car. Seeing the picture of your Camaro next to your C4 Corvette really shows how much larger the Camaro is by comparison.

bkscott - We're glad to hear you're enjoying the difference the Chassis Max Brace has made in your Camaro.

I've never taken a Camaro class but I've taken a zr1 class. Whew...what a blast of 3 days of speed. Spring Mountain Motorsports..love those guys!

Are you on street tires? If so, you should be able to hear them making noise and you will start to know their slipping point. On performance tires in most cases if not all you will not hear them - you will end up spinning before you hear anything.

I suggest going to an HPDE event with a well organized group. Have your instructor drive your car a few times with you sitting shotgun you will see where you can push it and it will be cheaper than a class.

There is an HPDE event near Austin the middle of November. I am planning on attending this one...

Great weather for the cars. I am doing an HPDE event every month until it gets hot again down here.

Since I had to raise my rear BCRs a tick last night I came back to this thread to post my observations after more than two months use. IMVHO it's been the best bang for the buck upgrade I've done. My only regret is I owned the car four months before having it done instead of four hours.

Do you have to drill holes in your trunk for these?

I have a subthump box in my driver's side trunk and seems like the box would be in the way of the little adjuster coming through..

Yes these require holes for the adjusters.

Are there any pictures from farther away where these adjusters come thru the carpet? I really think my sub box will be in the way..

There are no other options?
