We will certainly do out part to help out as well! Best part about it is as most of our customers will testify, there are no ride quality compromises made if you install our Pfadt springs. Give us a call at the office if you have any questions.

Here are some pictures of different Camaros with Hotchkis Sport Coil Springs. The great thing about our coil springs is that they are completely compatible with your stock shocks/struts and are perfectly matched to the other Hotchkis suspension components so that as you continue to modify your Camaro, you know that every Hotchkis Suspension component you add has been tested to further improve the handling and you won't have any issues with parts not being compatible with each other.

Here are some with our new wheels:






And here are some more:

Has anyone had any problems with your springs with wearing out and replacing the struts and shocks?

As long as you keep the drop to around 1" you won't be wearing the shocks/struts much faster than at the stock ride height. What tends to kill shocks/struts the quickest is excessive bottoming out, which a well engineered spring is designed to prevent.

Pedders 220032 / 220035 Springs
The 220035 rear springs are a bit higher than the 220033 version is.

Has anyone used any particular brand of springs that are not too stiff, not too bouncy but justtt right? LOL. I'm looking for 1.4" for a V6.

I suggest going with the BMR 1.2" V6 specific springs; part # SP052. Not quite as low as you're wanting, but they ride great.

Best regards,
