I don't think I'm gonna be able to swing it. The wife and I are going on a cruise the weekend before so money is gonna be tight. I did sign up for the Roval at the auto club speedway Aug 12th. You wanna join? I might be able to get you a free garage.

I am putting mine this weekend. Hope you don't mind if I hit you up with any questions. I will be doing it in my garage on jack stands, so need to ask you how you did the timing of the bushings.

Hey guys, I've gotten a lot of PMs about the guy I got mine from. Unfortunatly, he has gone MIA. I've called several times and haven't got a call back. So, I called Megan racing and told them about all the interest in these and they have agreed to list me as a dealer because of my thread. Which means I can buy direct from them at almost wholesale cost. If anybody wants a set, pm me and we can work out details and get you a set.

With the car on jack stands and the coilovers installed I loosened up all the bushings. Then I placed my jack under the suspension and jacked it up until the weight was off the jack stand and on the suspension in that corner. Then tighten up the bushings.

Basically I simulated the suspension being under the weight of the car with the jack. Hope that helps!

sounds easy enough. I was thinking I needed to get the weight off all corners at once.
Thanks

I am going to try again. everytime I try to post one its too big or jus posts an X.

I will take some pictures later today after I get it all dialed in and washed.
I set up up just like Mike had them. The rear is at 27 7/8ths and front is 28 1/8th. Rear tucks really nice but front still has a bit of fender gap, so may go another 1/4 in the front and hope nothing rubs.

It does a little bit. Rubs right where the bumper bolts to the body. I filed down the really sharp metal and trimmed i back right to the little bolt. Only rubs now on while hitting a dip. Had it hit before there just loaded down on the way to Cfest in AZ. About due for new rears, so going to run a little smaller. Either 305's or 295's.

Chuck, looks cool low like that but are you going to track your Camaro like that? Seems like there would be some rubbing based on the pictures...Interested to see how it works...

I put them in just like there were from the guy I bought them from just to see how it was to start. I think I am going to raise the rear a 1/4 inch or maybe a litle more. The tires really do tuck nicely and it it wasn't for the little bit that sticks out in the fender well, they wouldn't touch anything. Also, going to run a tad smaller tire in the rear and all should clear just fine.

Very informative and detail pictures. great job


How is the coilovers working for you?
when you timed the bushings which bushings did you timed?
Did you also replaced the sway bars? If so what brand?
Can you PM the price for the coilovers?

Thanks a lot...
