Did the alignment fix your stability light?

Weclome to the ZETA and ZETA II computer integrated steering system. The same sensor that screwed up your stability control is the same sensor we use for data logging that shows up in our videos.

If the steering wheel is not on center, the stability control system reads that as counter steer due to a slide. That conflicts with other information and the system throws an error code. It is NOT a problem if the car is aligned. There is a program to relearn the center position if the computer gets confused. Most 5th Gen owners will never experience this, but if they do the fix is just an alignment away.

Hey EL Manny, have you done the bushings yet? The difference in my car was amazing...I did it all at once. Kinda makes you wish GM offered this stuff as a performance option. I really threw my car around last week and it is amazing. Took my favorite curvy hilly road in it and the CTS rental my wife has now...night and day difference. This car just begs to be driven hard in the corners!

As we continue to push our Camaro harder with the Supercar Coilovers, we experienced heat problems with our Camaro on track. High IATs result in timing being changed by the ECM to portect the engine with a resulting loss in power. Power loss lowers lap times. Our solution is detailed in a Camaro F/I thread on Thermal Management.

Dr. Jamie Meyer GM, Bob Kern GM, Clifford Cohen GM, Pete Basica Pedders USA and Micah Kern GM (no relation).

Pedders Supercar Coilovers are NOW a GMPP licensed product. They are available through Pedders Specialists and all GM Dealers. If your GM Dealer cannot yet find them in the system they can call Pedders USA, LLC and order direct. Both Retail and Dealer Cost will be the same from GMPP or Pedders USA, LLC.

Some have asked how much the Supercar Coilovers weigh. They ship as a kit in a large box. Inside are four boxes with one coilover in each. The boxes cannot weight a pound. Here are the weights in the individual boxes.

Front 14.5
Rear 12

This is a 5th Gen Camarorunning on GMPP Supercar Coilovers. Smooth, powerful, FAST. That pesky Z06 is a thing of the past...along with a Viper and T2 CTS-V Race car.
