I would also upgrade to the FE4 LCA's and get the 1LE sway (BMR upgrade) -- that made a huge difference on my 11 2SS...

I got ALL of my suspension mods from JDP Tyler -- really made a difference -- will be doing the rest of the bushing @ some point.

I didn't know we had so many aero engineers on the forums!

Sounds like you are looking to waste money slapping parts on, trying to fix an issue for an event you know was dumb...but just incase it happens again?

The most import thing you do with a car that travels at high speed it align it for high speed driving. What alignment specs are you running?

Bilstein Pss10s with 12k rear BC racing springs, DSW swaybars, Z28 front control arms rear BMR toe link arms and rear lower control arms and ZL-1 facia with wider wheels and tires and you'll be all set.

Why would you use anything other than the Z/28 DSSV struts?

1.) Good Alignment along with
2.) very good set of coilovers
3.) sway bars
4.) Bushings (at least cradle)

You may put the bushings above the swaybars, but that order would be my recommendation...

Aerodynamics is something you want to look at if you're going 172 all day...
But even here in Germay (Autobahn) the Camaro does 'alright' aerodynamically... Although front lift is definitely poor...
