2010 SS coilovers

I was thinking about doing my suspension next on my camaro. what is a good adjustable coil over to use? or should I just use new springs? any tips from anyone who's done their suspension would be appreciated. Things you liked about doing it and didn't like. I prefer to have some research done before I work on my camaro so help me out please!

That depends. How do you use your car? Coil overs are amazing but if you do not need the capabilities of coil overs then there is no need to spend that much money. Unless, of course, money is not an issue and you just want the best.

It depends what your goals are with your suspension. If you're wanting to just get a better stance with slightly better handling characteristics, springs will be fine. Although I will say that if you have the money for coilovers, I'd definitely do those. I personally love my current springs and don't mind the slightly stiffer ride but if you don't want to compromise any ride comfort, coilovers will allow you to get the stance you want while also allowing you to adjust the ride.

The Pfadt Coilovers are excellent. But my recommendation would rely on the type of driving you do and your budget. Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions. We have tried MANY different setup's both on track and on the street and know what works and what doesn't.

Best regards,
