Second reason for reviving tread is that I am dropping my car at Advanced Modern Performance so that they can install the Suspension Kit Part Number 84203549 (shocks, springs, etc.) and the SWAY bar kit part number 84401188. This is more commonly referred to as the SG3 suspension.

The Car is a BLACKED out 2019 Camaro SS2 with A10 suspension. AMP has already installed an upgraded wheel and tire package that included APEX SM-10 19 x 10.5 wheels wrapped in Michelin Sport 4S 305 30 19 tires. This combo is ROTATABLE and with about 4K miles on them , the tires show NO significant wear as of yet. PICS of car NOW is in the thread below.

https://www.camaro6.com/forums/showt...=515659&page=6

This wheel and tire combination has been on the car for about 3 months and I couldnt be more pleased. AMP set negative chamber of all four wheels to be -1.5 degrees.

The car handles significantly better with the new wheel/tire set up than the stock set up but the current suspension is too soft and car has too much lean. I wanted to correct all that hence the reason for the suspension and sway bar upgrades.

I have asked AMP to document the individual part numbers that make up these two kits. Since they also have access to and create some of the fastest and best handling GM cars on the planet, I have asked them also to compare the best they can to their 2019 ZR1 Corvette and 2020 C8 corvette in terms of handling characteristics.

Having come out most recently a CAMARO ZL1 1LE A10 car, I wanted a car that had that handling ability but wasnt as miserable to drive due to the overly and in my opinion unnecessarily HARSH suspension (mainly shocks!!!) In testing smoother road surfaces, my ZL1 1LE handling was similiar to the Corvette Zr1 but when pushed near the limit, the ZR1 was more stable. If even slightly irregular road surfaces came into play, then that's where the ZL1 was unsettling because the suspension was completely unforgiving. The bottom line is the ZL1 1LE makes a pretty miserable daily driver.

This then is why I am modding the 2019 CAMARO SS2 with suspension goodies and such. I will post back here again when installation is completed,
That will be a nice setup! Looking forward to updates!

LT1 Convertible with Lowering Suspension Upgrade System

We want to add a Camaro Convertible 6.2L A10 as a family cruiser. (I already have an ‘18 1SS 1LE coupe). I’ve located an LT1 vert with the OEM Lowering Suspension Upgrade System installed, but stock wheels and swaybars. Has anyone driven a vert with the factory lowering suspension? I’m a little worried about the lowered suspension kit adversely affecting the ride quality of the more structurally flexible LT1 vert, and I’m sure I’ll want to add a more aggressive wheel-and-tire combination. Any thoughts?

Well I can get back to you after the install to confirm but my expectations are that YES the car will have a firmer ride but certainly nowhere near the dump truck ride quality you get with a zl1 1LE suspension.

As far as wheels go, I would check out APEX wheels at www.apexraceparts.com You cant do any better than Michelin Sport 4S tires so I would stick with those. Check out APEX's fitment guide on their website. I am a firm believer in a rotatable wheel and tire setup better known as a SQUARE set up. The 305 30 19 tires and APEX 19 x 10.5 wheels are the largest ROTATABLE configuration you can have on a SS without having tire poke issues. A more conservative 285 30 19 tires on 19 x 10 inch wheels works great also.
