That looks like some fun. I was looking at the BMR stuff myself. I also have had some good luck with the strange components on some of my other cars in the past. Nice weekend project.

Got everything installed....very pleased, no major headaches, but it does take a while, especially by yourself. You'll need a die grinder to get the upper shock mounts to fit. Haven't had a chance to drive it yet, so I can't really give any "real" feedback, but I will eventually. Can't wait to get the matching Strange Engineering Front Coilovers too!!!

Triple Adjustable? If you mean compression, rebound, and height....then yes! They are Strange Engineering p/n S5003. You MUST use the lower control arms shown because the coilovers are significantly shorter than OEM. BMR sells this whole set-up as a kit....more info here:

Everything looks good Keith! Let me know how you like it once you get some miles on the setup.

Those coil-overs are made by Strange Engineering and are considered to be double adjustable (rebound and compression) but these coil-overs will also allow you to adjust the ride height in the rear.

The bolt for the sway bar, is it not torqued down or is it just too short by design.

As long as the bolt is long enough to engage the nylon locking portion of the nut it is good to go. THe OP is good to go and I know he has had that rear bar on there for a good while without any kind of issues.

To engage it how much, half a thread, quarter thread, tip of the thread. It is hardly enough to ensure that it doesn't back off. Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it will not happen in the future. If it is good for BMR standards and the OP is happy with it then cool beans. I was not trying to bash the product, BMR components are some of the best on the market, just pointing out that the bolt looks short. Who knows maybe there was a mix up when the package was boxed up and the wrong hardware was shipped. Unfortunately not everyone on Camaro5 has the knowledge to know how much of the threads should be engaged on that type of nut or that the bolts in the suspension should be grade 8 steel bolts. They need people on this site to educate them on this stuff, so that they can pass that knowledge on to someone else in the future.
