How much did it change the stock feel as far as being a nice smooth ride?

That is my main concern with the aftermarket suspension kits. I understand you may have to lose some comfort to gain something in performance but I want to be able to go on a 6 hr road trip and still have a nice smooth ride.

Do you feel the bumps and rough spots on the roads more with this package?

Is this the TVS 1 stage package with the lowering springs and sways?

Thanks

The only real difference is when you hit a void in the rode... pot-hole or road bumps. it doesnt feel pillowy soft anymore its firm. The ride is great! like i said it is only notice in rough terrain. Go for it!!

With a solid set up like the Hotchkis Track Pack you will definitely want to upgrading those stock end links. Check these out.

Hotchkis actually makes what we consider the best 2010 Camaro end links available - anywhere. Features include three piece PTFE lined 1/2" Heim Joints (not two piece like others), CNC machined tapered billet aluminum sleeves with wrench flats with right and left hand threads for easy adjustment, CNC machined high articulation spacers designed specifically for the 5th Gen Camaro and zinc coated Grade 10.0 hardware.



Anyway, we appreciate all the support in this thread and we'll keep developing parts that bolt-on, work great, are in stock, reasonably priced and made in the USA.

WOW, we also have an IBM with the Hotchkis Track Pack and the Strut Brace!!!

We have put 6000 miles on our car since the installation, many of these miles have been on the track; Road course, AutoCross, and Drag strip and the suspension feels as ggod as the day it was installed. We wife also uses the car as her daily driver and, yes the suspension is "firmer" than stock, yet it is a very comfortable ride under normal driving conditions. The BIG difference is in every turn and corner you make!!! The car felt good when it was stock but now it truly handles like a race car!!! The car has NO Lean and is "ready/braced" for the corner and I beleive that this is the "Secret Ingredient" in the special sauce. The Chasis Brace keeps the car set and allows the suspension to work which let's you use your horsepower, I guess that why they say: Horsepower for your suspension!!! This is the Best "Bang for Your Buck" mod that we have done to our car!!!

If you have any questions I have video posted on You-Tube @
