Difference in suspension with SS and 1LE

What are the main differences between the 1LE's suspension and the SS? Have any of you upgraded to 1LE suspension?

The 1LE also features exclusive, monotube rear dampers instead of the twin-tube dampers on SS models. The new hardware allowed engineers to tune the 1LE suspension to focus on optimal body-motion control while preserving much of the ride quality and wheel-motion control of the Camaro SS.

Other changes to optimize the 1LE for track-day use include:

- Larger, 27-mm solid front stabilizer bar, and 28-mm solid rear stabilizer bar for improved body control
- Higher-capacity rear-axle half shafts to cope with increased levels of traction
- Strut tower brace for improved steering feel and response
- ZL1-based 20 x 10-inch front and 20 x 11-inch aluminum wheels
- 285/35ZR20 Goodyear Eagle Supercar G:2 tires front and rear (identical to the front tires for ZL1)
- ZL1 wheel bearings, toe links and rear shock mounts for improved on-track performance
- ZL1 high-capacity fuel pump and additional fuel pickups for improved fuel delivery during high-cornering

Wheels and tires might as well be even if they technically aren't.

The rear sway bar won't fit on your 2010. GM changed the mounting points for the rear sway bar in 2012. The rest of the 1LE package should be OK though. GM will likely price the individual 1LE package high and it would probably be cheaper/better to buy an aftermarket kit.

That's strange. I added the ZL1 rear sway to my '10 SS and just needed the end links.

The package part number is for reference, you will need to order the individual parts you want for now. the 2010 will use the ZL1 rear bar, just may need the updated rear lower control arms which are pretty reasonable.

That is not possible even on 2011 models....unless your rear control arms have been changed at some point in time.

Have you owned your Car since it was new?

If anyone prices a dealer "SS to 1LE" conversion with everything minus the transmission, steering wheel, and shifter, I would love to hear it. I looked into a trade of my SS for a 1LE and the loss would be around $15K all in. Not worth it to me.

BTW when I changed my trans fluid, I saw what looked like cooler lines but didn't follow them forward. Anyone know if the '13 SS has a transmission cooler for the M6?
