I know GM improved the design, but would I be opening a can of worms?

After looking at the posted list, I'll have upgraded my OE suspension parts to Pedders or better/improved GM parts so I should have the handling characteristics of the 1LE

And thanks for posting the part number for the rear lower control arms toehead93.

Already answered, but yes.

Here's a quick pic to show you the FE5 set up on my SS.

How come that rear sway bar looks different then the one I'm looking to buy? Its for a 2010/2011 Camaro conversation to the ZL1 sway bars? Are the ends different because of the difference in the rear lower control arms? I like your set up better!

Looks like a Peddlers system.

It's the new 2012 LCA's with the FE5 Pedders bar.

I can't say it enough....I LOVE MY SET UP!

My only issues are wheels and gears...and then I'll be set.

But...BACK TO THE GEARS!

Higgs! Need some help!!!

I sent Deb an email last night trying to give as much info on what I wanted to buy and I said "Check with Pete....its the same system TAG UR IT had installed on his Camaro". I called it the FE5/ZL1 system and said I would buy the newer upgraded LCA's, so I think I have it covered.

Remember I placed an order for the Solution B sway bars, so I'm scrambling to try to cancel that and order this package instead. Tick Performance has been very very helpful and I asked Pete for a favor when I placed my order and the service from him and Deb has been mind blowing!!

I am experiencing that good+ customer service right now! Really, providing good customer service is 99% common sense, but that is severely lacking today. Pete just sent me a PM with an answer to a question I had. So far I can not say enough good things about my experience and that includes Joey at Tick Performance!

And by wheels, you mean the black ZL1 wheels, just gpo to one of several GM parts websites, order 4 rims, cover your eyes when the total comes up, and hit "pay now". Wheels are done .

The 1LE rims are nice, but not $3600 nice

Before you drop that kind of coin on a set of ZL1 wheels which will limit your choice of tires, stayed tuned as I am working with Forgeline Wheels to fit 19x11 rims all around. This will expand your tire choices for track and slalom use.

Oh Lord...what to do now...lol


I'm searching out blem ZL1 black wheels. That "ohmigosh" price could be cut in half. I just have to be patient.



.....and ....of that, I have NONE!

I'm going to hold out for a bit. But, if that deal comes along for some blems, I'm jumping on them and will let you guys know

I"m still waiting too. Somebody said Maureen was on vacation last week. Hopefully, we'll hear from her this coming week.
