question for JusticePete.

I have a 2010 2SS/RS that already has the 1400H.P. axles from the Drive Shaft Shop. I would like to install the Supercar coil overs. Is there any interference issue with those axles,coil overs,and a 1" drop at all four corners?

I have that setup... no clearance issues. Everything fits together nicely. I am lowered 1 1/4" or so.

The supercar coilovers have plenty of room to the axles.
There is more room in the front of the car - smaller diameter spring.

Would you pedders guys say any upgrade on bushings is better than stock? For example diff bushings one is rated at 450 with little noise and the other 450+ with noise. If i dont want noise would it still be good to run the 450 one if i have 556rwhp over stock busing or is it a waste!

Interesting question. If we are only talking about doing the differential bushes in the IRS, then the answer would be the overall performance gain would be minimal and could be considered a waste. If we are talking about doing all the bushes in the IRS including the differential bushes it would be a gain.

The EP1167 has holes molded into the bush to control noise while providing much improved control over the OE bushes. The holes or voids do increase the compliance of the 1167 compared to the denser solid material in the EP1167HD. We have a very satisfied group of over 500 RWHP EP1167 clients. They enjoy thier increased RWHP but are not what I would call power users. The hardcore over 500RWHP guys push harder. They are willing to accept an increase in differential noise in exchange for maximum control.

Does this answer your question?

Supercar coilovers

Well I finally took the car into Rodgers Chevrolet for the supercar coil over install today. Will post some pic's if the sun ever visits the area again.

I do have a question for JusticePete about how the adjusments should be set for a ride similar to stock Camaro for the winter?

I was wondering if the sway bar settings should be set for a stock like ride
for the winter also.

Becky and Gerry have the secret sauce formula for damping, sway bar and alignment settings in the detroit area

These are my preferred settings regardless of the weather.

Supercar Damper Settings from Full Soft
Front Bound 18
Front Rebound 16
Rear Bound 23
Rear Rebound 16

Rebound is on top. Bound is on the reservoir.

If you find them too tight dial down the rears i.e.

17 Bound and 9 Rebound.

Which sway bar package do you have?

The car already has the Pedders solution B sway bar kit,and the bushing insert kit from Pedders both front and back.The rear trailing and toe arms are from BMR
But I didn't know any better starting out on the Camaro upgrade path to really good handling. Next will be 19" wheels and better tires. I guess being a little older I like to have a good foundation before I do any more engine mods.
