EIBACH SPRINGS AND SWAY BARS

HI this past weekend i installed my eibach pro kit springs and front & rear eibach sway bars. love the look about 1" drop. and car doesn't even look lowered to others. i like the differnce i felt after i put the sway bars. it a night and day differnce. great ride no complaints. worth to upgrade. the stock camaro sway bars are just to skinny for this big muscle car.

How hard was the sway bar install, i get mine in on Friday and have never installed sway bars before. Can you notice much of a difference in your ride height with the springs lowering only an inch? Did the ride change at all good/bad? Thanks

the one inch drop is plenty for a owner of the car you can notice the one inch. but most people would think the car came like that height. i love the drive . no complaints. thank you everyone . any questions ask away .

Does the manual explain the difference in stiffness as it relates to the amount of driving done? If so, what does it say? Stiffer if you drive more for recreation and looser if its an every day driver?

the camaro has alot of understeer so that doesn't give you the best handling but its safer. thats why you would like to get rid of the understeer. imo. gm could have made this car handle better right out of the factory but then again that's why we have room to upgrade.

Damn nice setup man.. I wonder how the Eibach sways compare with the Hotchkis?
Hotchkis has more experience in suspension tuning as far as sways go, and their primary focus is on classic and modern muscle cars, although they are also producing parts for imports now..

We have Eibachs springs in stock ($239.00) and sways will be here this coming week ($369.00), if anyone is interested.

I also agree with ssproject's last post.. GM's larger body cars (ever driven the older Navigator??) has a lot of understeer, and should have came with thicker sway bars from factory.

Did you have to bring your car somewhere to get an alignment? Did you just align it back to stock specs after you put everything on?

yes i had the alignment checked and adjusted at BARBARIAN MOTORSPORTS IN RIVERSIDE. everything was in spec and just adjusted the toe. the camber and caster were not to from factory specs. i aligned it after i drove it for a few days.

I have your set-up. Got it done today!

Thanks for the input this week. The guy had a hell of a time with the front sway bar like you said. He ended up cutting it off after calling me to ask my permission. He thought I might want to keep my factory parts. I love it just like you said I would.
