*RELEASE* LG Motorsports G5 Camaro Coil Overs




LG Motorsports is proud to bring you the G5 Camaro coil overs.


Years of testing the new Generation 5 Camaro platform have let us build a shock and spring package that will make your Camaro come alive on the track and still be completely street friendly. Our shocks feature Camaro specific valving and spring rates. The shocks are built with custom lengths that allow your Camaro to be lowered without running into shock travel problems.

  • 22mm front strut piston shaft
  • 15mm rear shock piston shaft
  • LG Motorsports approved custom spring rates
  • LG Motorsports designed and tested valving
  • Easy ride height adjustment
  • Bolt on installation
  • Compatible with all Gen5 Camaros
  • Track tested and daily street durable


Ride height

Ride height is simple to adjust with the LG Motorsports coil overs. Simply turn the spring adjuster on your strut/shock up or down to lower the ride height of your Camaro to your liking. This also will allow you to corner balance the weight of your Camaro, something that can not be done with the OEM design.


Track Tested

We have worked for decades on our Corvette systems, and the Camaro is no different. Taking from our years of street and race track development we put all of this into this coil over for your Camaro. Using data from our in house SS and ZL1 Camaros we put together a kit that is easy to install on your Camaro and give you confidence and improved handling both on track and the street.


Spring Rates


Using the data over the One Lap of America, street, and track testing we developed a spring rate that left your Camaro balanced and easy to drive. Both on track and the street you will find a new level of confidence not experienced by even the ZL1. If would like to use these on a custom application please talk with one of our sales reps about possibly changing the springs for AutoX, drag racing, or any possible combination.


Pickup a set of our G5 Sway bars and end links to finish out your suspension package!


Bang for the buck you will not find a better coil over system on the market!

So, based on the looks of this coilover, the adjustment from the rear is at top. If that's the case then I'm guess you'll have to put a whole in the trunk.

Personally, I love having a whole in my trunk to make adjustments. Makes it super easy.

These are not adjustable shock valving, just adjustable ride height.

Adjustable kits are coming down the line

How far out are the adjustable ones? Mono tubes? Independent adjustments (compression and rebound)?

Possibly a month or so. Price changes a lot more than these. Mono tube, just like these and I believe they should have independent bump and rebound.

Hey Anthony,

What are the spring rates on these?

How would you say these compare to stock FE4 shocks/springs? I'm sure they're light-years ahead of the FE3 in terms of damping rates, but my FE4 feels much more controlled than the FE3. I imagine these are even better yet, but roughly how much?
How much stiffer is the ride with the chosen springs?

I'm exploring many options right now for mild lowering and this is one of them. I want to do it right, but track use will be very rare for this car so I don't want to give up too much in ride quality (mainly for my wife, honestly).

Spring rates at current time are still proprietary and will not be released just yet.

The car is stiffer than stock, think ZL1 in sport mode.

Working on having a timeline on those right now.

I guess I need to get a ride in a ZL1 in sport mode then. (Anyone?)

For things as basic as spring rates, though, I really prefer to know what specs my parts have, proprietary or not. I'm trying to decide if that would be a deal breaker for me. I guess I can understand where you're coming from from a business perspective, it's just not my thing to have useful specs hidden from me.
I haven't written them off completely, however. From everything I know and have heard about you guys related to the suspension department, it's top quality stuff.

I'll try to remember to PM you with some questions tomorrow, I'm late for bed already.

Anthony, whats the advantage with the adjustable shock valving over just having adjustable ride height?

Many people want a better way of adjusting the ride height without using new springs.

As for the adjustments, this allows you to control the ride (ie: soft or stiff / street or track).

So it boils down to why you are buying them.

Generally speaking....for what we are doing (street, autoX, and road racing) most will have little use for a shock adjustment change.

When we work on adjustments on the shocks on the race cars, this is a small adjustment to bring the car around, depending on the track but it is one of the very last things done to the car. Bigger changes like springs, sway bars, setup....that is what makes the big changes to the cars track to track.

Now if we were building shocks for a late model dirt car, or a Sprint cars because of their radical changes in track surface they need a huge jump in soft to hard settings on the shock just due to available traction.

This isn't to say an adjustable shock is pointless on a street car, we will have adjustable ones on the way, but what I am saying is do not get so hung up on having 2 way, 3 way, 4 way, 13 way adjustable shocks with bleed downs....you could possibly get yourself outside of what the car needs.
