Suspension Upgrade Question
Hey all. I have a 2000 Camaro that is no longer my daily driver. I want to stiffen up the suspension, make it more aggressive and feel tighter. Currently its all stock, all parts on it are original. Where should I start? I was thinking getting Coilovers, lower the car 1-2", and will probably be replacing most bushings with fresh ones. Will also get a strut bar, put decent tires on it, and replace anything that is rusted. Would like to know peoples thoughts/ experiences.
Sure that sounds like a good way to start but my advice is do each thing one at a time you might be satisfied after a few and not want to go any further
You have quite a few different options available to you. It will probably boil down to your personal choice regarding how stiff you want to go.
The 1993+ Camaro's and Firebird's were 23% more rigid then their predecessors.
Having driven a number of them, the structure is rigid enough for the stock suspension, however you may want to start with structure stiffening first.
You mentioned a strut bar, so I would also research subframe connectors and other stiffening parts.
The best suspension in the world won't make much of a difference if the body is flexing and negating any gains.
