Everything from the 1LE package sans wheel hubs. My rear shock mounts unlike Synners are lacking the cutouts for mag ride or adjustable coil overs. I can also confirm that the front end links are the 12mm variety. The yellow front strut insulators are on all current Camaro's, i figured I'd upgrade those while I was at it. My sway bars and rear LCA's were also package poorly and are covered in scratches and dings. Gonna need some wire brushing and repainting on some of these parts.

How much did all that set you back? It took me a couple years to piece together all of my suspension upgrades.

About a grand all together. The most expensive part was the rear monotube dampers, they were 180 a piece. I just saved my kinkles till I saw something I liked. I'm looking at Pedders Street I inserts and maybe the alignment kit to go with these. I haven't decided what to do with springs yet, but the 1LE uses the same springs rates as the SS.

Hey Pete, do you know why they didn't change the spring rates? With as much as they did I figured those would have been changed out too. Cost? Trying to keep the price down?

Sway bars and tire sidewalls. Those are big axx bars coming from an OEM. As much as the 1LE is a 'track' car it still has to pass OE NVH standards. Couple the bigger bars with the extremely stiff sidewalls on the ZL1 spec GYs and what you have in the 1LE is as far as they will go. Well that and they wanted to make sure that Pedders keeps growing

So does that mean a certain someone may have a set of 1LE specific springs soon?

Supercars allow us to tune our 8kg front and 10kg rear coils to the 1LE. Depending on the driver and use I am partial to 10kg front and 12kg rears on the Supercars. Did I mention we run ZL1 GY 305s on all four corners of the L/28?

Im not surprised. Would you recommend a set of the 220035 and 220032 springs to go with the 1LE dampers?

I would prefer the balance of the font 220032 with the rear 220033.

That would be good for business

The brochure does read re-tuned front damper and monotube rear. I'll have to look at our SEMA take-offs more closely.

Looking at those parts I see the rear end links are obviously different but the front end links look about the same as on the FE3 ('10-'11). Are there any differences in front end links from FE3 to FE4?

The FE4-FE5 endlinks are much thicker than the FE3 endlinks. The FE4-FE5 endlinks also use a larger 12mm ball stud vs 10mm on the FE3 links. Ill be comparing parts when I install them, still go a few more to paint still.

Ok....so I'm going to be upgrading my rear suspension to the FE4 version. I haven't seen any kind of DIY on it yet so I want to make sure I know what to do.

Does the End Link go in this whole? Also, is there any specs on the torq for the end link bolts....or is it the old "good in tight" rule with maybe a drop of blue locktite?

The reinforced hole on the bottom of the arm. It really is a ver simple straigt forward install and literally impossible to mess up. The bush squish for the drop links is best set with the weight of the car on the wheels.
