The Z bars were specifically designed to fit the 2012 Z. Our front Z bar fits better than the OE bar. Once installed no one will notice or care. It is a big deal to us and demonstrates we need to get real lives.

The 1LE Balance Bar explains in the name how it can be used. We have been using a 27mm solid front bar since early 2009. The 1LE is the first Camaro from the factory with a 27mm front bar. We like that choice. The Rea 28mm bar is too small and biased toward understeer. Keep the front OE bar and add Pedders 32mm rear bar to get balancd with a slight bias toward oversteer.

ZL1 = Needs a two bar upgrade
1LE= Needs a rear balance bar
