The springs I'm using are actually Eibachs too. The 25lb was enough to get what the chassis guy wanted and still have adjustment left.

Now that hard part is getting it all to work together. Gone are the days if showing up, running a bunch of 10.0's then going home. It's like work right now!!

I just received these exact coil overs. Do you guys happen to have the part numbers on these springs? The ones on mine are marked- front: Z/M P1396 rear: 57-193-104,9. I really don't want to put these on just to find that I have to swap out springs.

Supercharged SS: You have a drag spring package that is trying to be dialed in, the OP has a normal "street-strip" spring package that is completely unrelated to what you are doing with your car.

I am sure the guys over at Pfadt can help you get this squared away. Have you rolled the car a few times after putting the coilovers on ? That will make a big difference to start with.

I wish I would have logged on over the weekend! I almost did just to check up on everyone, but I had too much work in the shop. EncoreCamaros, call me! 888-972-2464. Something definitely does not seem right here. These are highly engineered and have been tested through the roof! You should be able to slam the car, burn around corners, and have a beautiful ride. Supercharged SS has a drag package which is very vehicle/application specific and may require individual tuning, that is a completely different issue than what you are seeing. I will figure out what is happening and get you set up ASAP! Our products are our pride and joy, and if it isn't a problem with the install itself, you can rest assured I will do everything to make sure we take care of you.

I personally have not seen this issue, so lets take a closer look and find out what is going on

I have some thoughts: I went and reviewed your build sheet and dyno results, everything is spot on. We build everything in house so the we have all the accountability, but also have full transparency on our work. I am wondering if the car just needs to settle? Any time you are lowering one of these Camaros, it should be driven around to make sure it all settles. That, or you can loosen the front arm bushing bolts and then re-torque them while its loaded, this will get it settled much quicker. Please give me a ring and let me know the actual before and after fender heights so I can better assist you.

Also don't forget you need to time the bushings, that will help.

Talked to Hunter this morning, the car has dropped significantly just by moving it around, I informed him to time the bushings and get back to me.

Guys, we put a lot of work into making sure these were perfect from the start. No need to worry about "tuning" or "fiddling" with spring rates/heights or any of that crap. You should be able to just put them on and have a spring rate and ride height that makes that car look amazing, ride smoothly, and blast around turns like you never imagined

I have the first generation coilovers and had a similar issue. No problem from pfadt, I just wanted a slammed track ride height. They hooked me up with the GMPP spec springs and all is perfect.

ive had the pfadt coilovers on the car now for about 2 months and the front of the car still hasnt settled enough to adjust the front coilovers at all. the car is still a little high in the front and cant lower it. i timed the bushing and did everything i could think of to fix the issue. i went for a alignment at a very high end shop out near me and i asked them about it and the owner of the company told me its definately the front spring rating is too high for the application. thats not the first time i heard that! does anyone know the spring rating on the new generation pfadt coilovers?

This. The quickest way to find a solution is to talk to the people that know the most about them.
