Adjustible Drag Coilovers

Who makes the best adjustable drag coilovers for a 2010 Camaro now? Looks like the Lingenfelter/Pedders drag coilovers are no longer available (I'm assuming their shelf stock ran out way after Pedders USA shutdown). I've seen the LPE/Pedders on sites..... but if found, I'm guessing parts & services for rebuilding might not be available.

Strange and Viking both make two way adjustable for our cars. I bought the Strange through BMR a while back. Both require you to use modified or aftermarket LCAs in order to reach the adjusters, so you might as well go 15" conversion when you do it.

I just switched to Santhuff's but have yet to try them out at the track.
You can also look at Penske's...

On the Santhuff's, were you able to order a package or is it pick what you want and a little trial & error to zero in on the right spring rate?

Any issues at all with the strange, like leaking or adjusters getting hard to move? Did you go Strange in front too?

Pedders can still get the Lingenfelter shock inserts fyi guys...in case you find any hanging around. That said, the 2 way adjustable units (which are still available) will largely accomplish the same.

I believe they only make one set for the 5th gen,
I would contact Craig @ Extreme Innovations
http://extremeinnovationsandfabrication.com
He knows a lot, in fact he started the 15" rear wheel conv phenomenon, very friendly and knowledgeable.

Tim Dyer at Lingenfelter said their Pedders/LPE drag setup was no longer available and they took it off their website too.

That being said, if others were available in the market still..... not sure who can rebuild them and get replacement parts readily.

Did you have to do the 1" holes in the trunk below the carpet for adjusting the rear uppers? Easy enough?
