You should take a look at the pedders coilover, its a solid setup. We have used them in Rick Bottoms Camaro and it is easy to say that it is a real solid piece!

Here is a breif tid bit on the pros of the pfadt coilovers!

The main features of Pfadt's Coilovers:

-Inverted monotube design in on the front strut. This provides that really large shaft section that you see with our front coilover. That is important because the front strut takes cornering loads in these cars and the stiffer the tube, the better. This has the effect of placing the adjuster knob on the bottom of the strut for easy access. It is a click style adjuster with 20 clicks that are very positive and easy to feel. It is a simple matter of reaching around the front tire and making a couple of twists to change your damping.

-Inverted body design on the rear damper. This reduces unsprung mass (a good thing) and also places the adjuster at the bottom of the damper where you can reach it. It is also a click style adjuster wrapped around the shaft section just below the spring perch.
Our dampers in both the front and rear feature single point adjust-ability which controls both compression and rebound damping together. This is a design that we have found to be very flexible and user friendly in our Corvette offerings. Basically, you do not need to be a damper engineer to be comfortable making adjustments and it is easy to switch from a 'street' setup to a 'track' setup with just a few clicks.

-Our damper are mono-tube design and feature a separate internal gas chamber, which in the industry is referred to as 'non-emulsion' design. Mono-tube non-emulsion shocks are what you find on most every production based race car everywhere. It is the best design and provides the most consistent and reliable operation. Many of the other offerings for the Camaro are not, ask the manufacturer if you are curious.

-The final feature about our coilovers that I will share today is that our coilovers take a 'standard' flat ground race spring. Many other use a custom spring to fit the Camaro specifically. Using a standard spring size allows extreme flexibility in spring rate choice. You can call up any race supplier and order springs in 25 lb/in increments that will work on our coilovers. We provide a set with our coilovers that will work well for most people, but the flexibility is there for those who want it

Our shop is also very well known in the Vette market so your correct, pfadt puts you in the winners circle!

Finally as for ride quality, if it is like the vette coilovers, which we have installed on more cars then I can count, then this product will ride like a dream, and perform properly!

Regards

They certainly do, what type of strut are you looking for? There aren't many options just yet, but by spring there should be.

PM me for Xmas Specials

As for options, It sounds like Koni is releasing some soon, Pfadt will have some in 3-4 months as well. Really currently strut options are about nill, for anything I would consider a quality upgrade.

You may also want to add this to your why Pfadt list:
3" O.D. Everyone else is 5" like the factory.
This comes in to play when looking to run very wide rubber.
