shock/spring setup for autocross?

So, what is the best spring/ shock/coilover setup for auto cross for 2014 SS with 255/40/20 & 285/35/20 Michelin SSs? Already have ZL1 sway bars, but not installed.

For the price we have been very happy with our ZL1 sways and 1LE struts and springs, and a hot alignment all of this has totally changed the car night and day from stock, also running 275's with 20x9's all the way around

1LE struts are on back order. Unknown when that will change. a lot of replacements needed in the field!

Pfadt coil overs are hard to beat without spending a fortune. Koni is also supposed to be releasing some more damper options for the Camaro in the coming weeks.

Check out Ride Tech's coilover set up, they just made them available and a good price for a leader in suspension products...

We run the Pfadt coilovers currently on the JDP Track Spec Camaro. They offer excellent ride quality for the street and with a simple adjustment they're ready for road course or autocross duty. The fact that they are a single adjustable (Compression and Rebound) damper also makes them easy to adjust; no need for a engineer to dial them in. The 1LE dampers aren't magical but they are an improvement over the OEM pieces.



We're planning on installing a set of Detroit Speed Double Adjustable coilovers in the very near future but they are at a higher price point. We'll do a full write up on the installation along with our impressions for street and track use.

Kind regards,

Jordan, the JRI/Detroit Speed ones are $6k, that's a lot of money for coilovers...so will be interested in your opinion of them....I have watched other Pro Touring cars with them and they seem difficult to get tuned right, so keep us informed....
