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


It looks awesome!! Congrats!!

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

I'd be more than happy to take that final step on the coil overs as well!
We can help you out as well!

Kind regards,

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

Send us a PM with what you had in mind. We cant make any promises!

There is always a good market on the classifieds section to get a good portion of that initial investment back!

I have a question. What are the differences in the Featherlight GMPP version vs street/track version? The GMPP is +300.00 more and was wondering about the difference for in version of the featherlights. Thanks.

The GMPP version of these coilovers runs a slightly lower spring rate which will let you lower the car a little more aggressively. However, unless you're looking to get the car as low as absolutely possible we recommend our normal FeatherLights with the proper street spring rates because of their fantastic balance of handling and the ability to get the car low.

Looking good! I have a few other items on my 'future mods' list that will come first but eventually I would like to pick up a set.

Good Stuff

Hey all you awesome guys at Pfadt! I have a question for you. Is there a way I could paint the trailing arms and toe links the same color orange as you subframe bushings? If so what would be the best way to do it (sand blast first?) and where could I get the color paint info? By doing this would it void anything? You guys should think about doing this in my opinion. In fact you should just run with this color and make everything this color much like BMR has done with red. My .02 Either way I can't wait to get my Stage 4 installed and keep up the good work.

I would suggest blasting them first and then coating them. I would find a local powder coating firm and have them find the closest powder they can to Pfadt Orange. The only thing that would be affected would be the warranty on their coating. The only problem with offering those in Orange is there are a lot more customers that would rather have a grey/black color with me being one of them. Having multiple color options sounds good but from a manufacturing standpoint it is difficult.

You'll love the Stage 4 package! The car will be very balanced and predictable. I've been very competitive with that basic set up and I have so much fun driving it now!! Good luck with your install!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Thanks Jordan! I agree with this recommendation. Just a heads up, finding an orange to match won't be the easiest thing, most of them turn out closer to a bright brown...

well in the stage 4 comes with the fabricated lightweight tie rods here:


But there is always an option to move to the adjustable rear tie rod seen here:
