Finally finished picking my Suspension

After a very long and indepth investigation in the the myriad of offerings I have finally got everything ordered. It will be installed by Heath and his team at American Muffler in Fredricksberg TX. If everything goes well within the next couple of weeks I will load up the car in the new rig and get er done!
I went with a hybrid system of sorts because of availability. Take a look:

From Pedders:

164086 SportsRyder Supercar Coilover
EP1167HD Zeta HD Differential Mounts
EP1201HD Camaro HD Rear Sub Frame Repl
EP2112 Zeta Steering Rack/Pinion Mnt
EP6577 Camaro Front Radius Rod Bush
EP7264 Zeta Rear Lower Control Arm In
EP7322 Camaro Rear Upper Control Arm
EP7323 Zeta Rear Trailing ArmToe Link
PDUSACAM2800 Camaro Complete Brake Hose Kit
PDUSACAMFULL Camaro Full Alignment Kit

From Pfadt:

Camaro Adjustable Sway Bars - Sport
Camaro Performance Rear Trailing Arm
Pfadt Camaro Sway Bar End Links
2010 Camaro Engine Mounts
and maybe the new 2010 Camaro Camber Kit if I can find out if they will work.

On the sways it was more about availability, I think they both have awesome sways.
I choose Pedders for the bulk of the parts as I feel they have the most experience with the Zeta platform. Pfadt is coming on strong and have a great reputation in their own right with the Vettes, and have invested heavily in the Camaro. I guess in a couple of weeks I will be here posting the results of my quest for supercar handling.

Heath and the guys at American Muffler are first class. There location allow2s them to be very reasonable compaired to shops in San Antonio. Pedders uses them to assist us in our dealer meetings and training. You will seriously enjoy what your Camaro will be able to do.



thanks

Thanks Guys...I cant wait to get all of this on my car and shake it all out.

Here are some pics of the new remote resevoir coilovers I got off of the pedders site. Man if these things perform as good as they look, I need to invest in a tire company.

Thanks for the heads up Partsgetter!

Thank you for your business! We know that you are going to be thrilled with our products, and left wanting more! Please contact us with any questions you have.

If your new coilover setup uses the OEM front strut top, then the Camber/Caster plates should work great! Give us a call to sort it out once you get the parts in your hands. It is the only way to adjust Camber/Caster and solve the articulation problem imposed by using the OEM front strut top. Let us know how the Pfadt products work out for you!

Just sent you a PM, I believe they use the stock mounts. Maybe someone who know for sure can chime in here and let us know.
If they will work I am game to give them a go. We will have to hurry though as I will need them delivered by Wed. of next week.

I'm going to put this question here...so you guys running the Pedders coil overs could order another set of front OEM hats and then you could litterally swap assemblies...no spring compressor needed. Right?

I guess you could, but why? If you run an adjustable coilover you are just a few clicks of a knob away from what ever you wnt. You can also change your ride hieght at any time, but you will need to re-aligin.
This is why I am going to run the adjustable coilovers, I can change the settings so easily.

I am not sure their camber plate is compatible with our Xa coil overs. You need to have room on the upper thread for the adjuster but with their double nut, I do not think you will be able to install the adjuster. Now if you do not want to leave the adjuster on, that will work, but you have to protect the hole in the top from the environment

Nice list of parts! I believe you will enjoy your Camaro much more

Maybe I can shed some information on the chamber plates. Pfadt has two types of chamber plates, one of which is engineered for the factory spring size, the other model is designed for a standard 2.5" spring which most coilover systems use. I am not familiar enough with those coilovers that you purchased to give you any more input other then if the unit has a 2.5" spring it should work, although I can not guarantee this with 100% certainty as we have not personally tested this on that model coilover.

Good luck with the car and if we can be of any assistance please do not hesitate.

Regards

I thought I would fill everyone in one the latest addition, the Pfadt camber plates. It seems the adjustment knobs for the Pedders coilovers thread onto the end of the strut shaft, and if you look at the Pfadt plates they use a locknut on top to hold the setting for the camber. So it seems we will have to get creative to make them work together. We have a couple of ideas and if worse comes to worse I may just leave them out.
