suspension for a 600 whp daily driver

Guys, what's up... I have a 2010 Camaro SS with close to 600 whp. The car is my daily driver and I like taking it to the track to drag race and also love to take it to run it in the autocross. My problem is that the car does not handle very well al high speeds and I also find it hard to get the car to hook. So I'm looking at buying a suspension that can actually help me put the HP down on the asphalt and also help the car handle better on the road corse and at high speeds. What do you guys recommend I get. Thanks!!!

pedders has some great packages for you id start with the hd bushing kit, that will get your car tighter and handle that power, from there you can add a set of xa coilovers and sway bars, although the ride quality will be a little more firm for a daily driver the interior noise will be a little more but the xa coilovers are a great addition because you can adjust it for daily driving and when you are ready to hit the track a few quick adjustments and you are good to go

what is your budget?

Money being no object, the Pedders Track Justice Edition will give you one of the best handling Camaros on the road, and at the track. The Double Adjustable Remote Reservoir Coilovers combine with Pedders Sways, and Bushings. The coilovers will allow you to tune it for the street, or for the track. They are even good for a couple tenths at the strip.

Dan would be a good one to contact about this, he has the setup on his car

With the amount of time and effort you've already put into the car, and given how much time the car is spending at the track, I would suggest a set of our coilovers. The Pfadt coilovers are versatile enough to provide a fun and comfortable street ride, as well as aggressive enough for road course use with both street and race tires. For the drag strip the damping can be adjusted to promote weight transfer to the rear for your hole shot. They are ride height and 20 way damping adjustable for easy setup between drag strip/street/road course with the turn of a knob at each shock.



Along with the coilovers we would recommend a set of sway bars. Our Camaro Race bars can be setup soft enough to allow the car to be neutral on the street, and then setup stiff enough to control wheel rates for both street and race tires at the track.

Supporting cast members should be addressed as well. Parts such as rear trailing arms, subframe and differential bushings are key to firming up areas of the chassis that require some attention. There are many different options for many different budgets and performance goals. Richard Childress Racing recently drove their Pfadt Stage5 car over 4000 miles round trip to Phoenix for the Camaro5Fest this year, and cars using our suspension components have taken top spot in both Modified and Super Modified categories at this years Camaro5 Autocross competition. We are confident that we have the suspension components to suit your needs!

Thanks for the information, I forgot to mention that I'm also buying a set of wheels and tires for the car and I'm planning going with 315 tires on the rear and 275 in front. I don't know how big of a factor that will be...

Any reason that you decided to go with a staggered setup?

That will likely make the push more prevalent due to the tire mismatch.

I'm thinking about going with larger size tires in the back for the look and to get a little more grip...

ok, larger tires in the rear will give more grip, but at the expense of more understeer.

If your more concerned with Drag Racing it's the right choice, if your more concerned with Road Course/AutoX then it will possibly hurt.
