PFADT - Drop springs & Balance bars (Pics inside)

So all I can say is, PFADT RACE ENGINEERING is the only way to go if you want the best ride, handling and look for your 2010 Camaro.

Just installed, the PFADT drop springs, and the Sport Sway bar / balance bar package, front & rear. This is a fantastic feat of engineering. Forget the term sway bar, this car is now balanced to perfection. This car is a whole new car with a whole new ride, I can’t believe the responsiveness and handling.

This new and improved Camaro, with the new PFADT suspension is definitely a point and shoot……then you better hang on. You turn the wheel and the car is there, no roll, no twist, ………can you say freight-train on rails!!! Cornering is absolutely amazing. With the car 1” – 1 ¼ lower the body roll is almost non existent the car sits down and hugs the road like it should. The tires are on the ground and this car sticks, no sliding and you have more rubber to the road. The ride is very impressive and no problem as a DD (daily driver) Fantastic ride!!! Even with it lowered!! I can truly say I am now definitely PFADT and happy. I guess all I need now it your complete poly bushing set, trailing arms, strut tower brace and I’ll be ready for the track…………

To everyone at PFADT Race Engineering I say thank you!!!! You have out done yourself with the engineering and design of these suspension mods…….. Keep up the good work!!! I’ll be watching and impatiently waiting as you release more products for the 2010 Camaro.



Current mods: Corsa CAT back, ADM CAI, TUNE, PFADT Drop springs, PFADT Sport Balance bars front & Rear.

Looks great! Any tips/tricks for the install? Did you do the springs yourself? If so, insights? I'm doing the bars tomorrow - after the Hurst shifter, before the SubThump subwoofer Busy weekend!

I'd say he drop about $1000. The springs are 450 and the sways are 550. It would be cool if they had a group buy and drop the price. But it looks good...

The springs are cake.. just did it and didn't even need a spring compressor.

The hardest part was getting out the front OEM sway bar.. what a PITA.. ended up just cutting it in half. lol

There will be a story in the January Camaro Performers magazine but feel free to ask any questions.

I just did mine today and agree the springs are easy and the front stock bar is a pain in the ass My friend and I managed to get it out without cutting it in half but I was only minutes away from grabbing the sawsall!!! The good news is my Pfadt bar was easy to install

Glad to see you guys aren't having any trouble with the installs! Now if the OEM components were just as easy to remove...
