Subscribed; op, sorry to hear about your coil over woes. Hope you get them resolved. I'm still on the brake part of prepping my car for track but expect to be dealing this this same struggle soon. I don't mind saving for some good K&Ws or Detroit speed but have other obligations at the moment. Good info here for those of us who are recreational trackers. I wonder why BMR never responded...

Anyhow, long story short, I tried to get them installed last week, and $250 of labor later, it turns out THEY DON'T FIT! I looked up BC Racing's application list, and they now have a new part number for '14+ Camaros (Q10 v.s. Q04), but I only see BR listed as available models. Well, I am being told they do have ER as well(?), and they will hopefully swap it out. I just shipped the coilovers back, and I sure do hope this gets resolved. I hope they do resolve this well : (
What changed on the 2014's to make the coilovers not fit?

I think the Ridetechs are probably more than enough for the occasional tracker.

Something else I was thinking about just this morning, some guys are going crazy trying to get Z/28 parts for regular and 1LE SS. That rear spoiler for the 2014 and up and the ACS for 2013 and earlier. If you don't absolutely need that thing for high speed banks try a less aggressive spoiler the Z/28 is at such a severe angle it will kill you gas mileage for a DD...

How do these rates compare to the Z28 springs? You do have a valid concern that the bars will be to stiff. If it's anything close to the z28 spring rates then I would look for bars with similar diameters to the z28. 25 & 26mm I believe.

The outboard sways make external oil canisters tricky to fit as they both want to take up the same space if its a shock body mounted oil canister.
