Looking nice !!!

I am excited to get these on my R&D car here.. Last year with the "old" design we went 9.87 with street M/T radials on 1.41 60's. These were comfortably for street, but they mean business on the race track!

You can call us for ordering on these 941-721-1826. FREE Shipping with every Pfadt order!

Thanks

Matt

I'm going to be looking at a suspension kit here in the next month or two perhaps after I order a ZL spec sway bar kit and have been awaiting the release of these new coilovers. Could I also get a PM for the price? These won't be GMPP licensed will they? Just curious. Thank you.

Thanks for all the attention this thread has had gentlemen! Coilovers are being shipped all over the States and should be in the hands of their new owners soon!

For those of you who are drag racing we will soon be releasing a Drag Coilover package as well, which includes custom spring rates, as well as specially revalved shocks for the best drag performance available!

so just to clarify, installing these coilovers will completely remove the MRC suspension from the factory right? So PTM modes 1-5 will no longer control the suspension, it will have to be manually adjusted depending on the point of use (i.e. drag, autocross, track, street)?

Correct. But what you will end up with is a true performance solution which will certainly put you in a position to drop your lap times around your local autox/road course while still giving you the ability to quickly tune the suspension back to comfortable for street use.

We also have a prototype coilover package for the ZL1 which would retain the factory Mag Ride insert and functionality but give you ride height control. If there is enough interest we may bring something like this to market as well... but given how easy it is to defeat the Mag Ride System all together unless there is significant interest in this it may not actually make it to production.

Just have to give props to the team at Pfadt. I was waiting for the development on the Gen2 Coilovers for some time and I can easily say that I am glad I waited.

Installed the Gen2's earlier this week with other Pfadt stage 4 items. The entire package as a whole is insane. But, i cant wait to try all sorts of dampening combos on the coilovers.

For the first week, I had the setting setup for the track/autox, it was still comfortable enough to ride on the streets, but could whip in and out of turns. Really makes the car feel lighter and much more response and agile.

I put my "show" rims on the evening. With a few clicks in the front, and a few in the back, I'm just near full soft on both front and rear. I put on low profile 22's, and even with the minimal tire sidewall, the ride felt better than stock. And, I can still whip around turns as I desire. Going to be heading to an Auto-X and Track Day in November, and with a few quick clicks, ill be back at track settings.

Great job Pfadt Engineers and team! You guys have been great to work with and produced some awesome camaro products. Just some pics of the Installed goodies

I just had a set of PFADT lowering springs added yesterday.

The shop that installed them said kudo's about supercharging a V6 so..maybe if I ever went that far with it these coil-overs would be done.

My point being that if anybody thinks they might be "bitten by the bug" with mods, than these would really be up high on the priority list. They sound like an excellent product for sure.

You're setup looks GREAT!

Let us know what you think about the difference in track manners after you get the new setup out there. I think you're going to be VERY pleasantly surprised with the new found confidence you will have on the new components!

I'm already Pfadt-ed as far as the bushings, trailing arms and tie-rods is concerned - and more than just happy with the performance

Are you guys planning on putting your Camaro coil overs on the German Market as well? TÜV requirements/authorization is a must unfortunately....

I'd be more than happy to take that final step on the coil overs as well!

Our Camaro Coilovers will absolutely be available to German customers as well. However we will not be seeking blanket TUV approval on this particular product. There should be absolutely no reason why these coilovers wouldn't pass a TUV visual inspection, but there will not be a generic TUV stamp on our parts.

We've got a ton of our parts running on both Corvette and Camaro in Europe. We even have a Pfadt Europe facility in Adenau right outside the Nürburgring. If you have any specific questions relating to TUV inspection they are a great resource for you. They can be reached at:

How 'bout a trade-in swap program for upgrading from the old version to the new version?!?!?!?
