Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: i stumbled on it, via the interwebs >_^
Ok so now that i have time and cash I'm going to go and buy me a new set of shocks, but i know what costs $$$ isn't gonna be the best for my application so before i shell $399 on the bilsteins i was wondering if thats even the direction i should be going. and im pretty sure i need new ones because of the amount of the shear roughness of the ride when my tires are at 32 psi.

currently i'm trying to push my Camaro in the direction of one day being suitable for auto cross like driving
i think Ins0mnia once said that i can change the springs at a later date as those aren't really a big problem.. so my main concern is more or less just being able to stick to the road... and not having my tail bone compressed any more XD

thanks in advance for helping me out :)

Where Did You Hear Of Camarosource.ca?: Boobs
Koni or QA1 would really be the best you can get even if you got either in just the single adjustable models..
At a Minimum the Bilsteins would be decent and better than what you have on the car now...
But if you get them I would get them from here because he uses a better combination of Bilstein shock models together in a package which I think are 4th gen fronts and 3rd gen rear shocks and alot of people claim they are better used that way..

Any of the 3 mentioned would work perfectly fine with the stock springs..

sooo for the moment i went with monroe 's but i figure i'll slowly buy the QA1's a piece at a time, but i come to find out that theres a problem with the strut mounts collecting bits of water and then becoming rusted to the struts which in turn means that the whole thing becomes useless, that ended up costing me about 126$ extra, but i figure best to fix that now then suffer from some thing really bad happening later on and costing an arm and a leg to repair..

Also thanks a bunch ins0mnia for pointing me in the right direction. :D

I put Bilsteins on all the way around in October of this year (2008) and could tell a difference--No more nose diving when stoping and no rear end settling when taking off. Good on the curves as well. My 4th Gen rides a little rougher than what came with the SLP package, but I prefer a stiffer ride anyway. Good luck!
