    Problems with ss

    Hey guys I need some help. Idk if on the right forum
    last Thursday I bought a 2000 camaro ss 6 spd
    the rear end was messd up.
    I knw it was broken
    so today I got it fixed and I took it for spin and
    I went to test drive it and the car doesn't feel right
    it has no balls at all.
    I replace the stock gears for 3.73 n I knw it has to run right
    the car is all stock expept for the gears
    and it has a exhaust leak n my friend told me that his car had exhaust leak and it Los alot of power
    so I'm guessing is that
    motor sounds good trans feels good so idk wat could be the problem
    the front sway bar is broken. So that could be the problem too?
    Cuz I dnt feel firm or strong
    I knw it needs a tune up

    the z28 I had feels alot better and stronger
    it was 6 spd stock rear end.
    Slp air lid
    ported TB
    lowered 2 inches
    fresh tune up
    and it has the same mileage 120 k miles

    so I dnt knw wat the problem could be.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the help

    the 98 z28 I have feels a

    The guy who rebuilt your rear told you to brake that diff in properly correct? You shouldn't be gunning it at all right now. Yes the front sway bar takes out a lot of slop. Check your ses light probably the o2's going bad. I have a stock front sway bar for either a jackson or some good beer

    How much u want for the sway bar bill go get it tomorow
    the rear end is fine.
    Some other mechanich said there is nothin wrong with the rear end
    they belive it could be the exhaust leak
    and the car has the engine light on due to the exhaust leak
    ant it has the abs light on too
    so idk wats wrong with it
    I dnt like how it feels

    Either $20, lunch, or a box of some good beer (newcastle, widmer, alaskan amber, etc) I'm a big guy so lunch wouldn't be the cheapest option
    The exhaust leak would only hurt you if it was before any of the o2's, people cut off the the exhaust all the way to the y-pipe with no problem.
    Look into replacing the fuel filter, clean the maf w/ maf cleaner, when was the last time you changed plugs and what type did you use?
    Abs could either be just a sensor, difference in wheel diameter, or the block itself.
    A heads up if your car is an ss with the slp package it would have come with a 1le sway which is thicker than mine, although it would still fix your immediate problem.

    I like the 20 bucks better lol
    or if u not far from me I'll go there n buy you some beers lol
    or if you help me out to install it we get lunch when we re dome installing it
    I jst knw it's an 00 ss. How can I knw it has the slp package?
    I knw it came like that from the factory

    I jst bought the car last week. I'm sure it needs the spark plugs
    and probably the gas filter
    I never thought bout the MAS
    it might be dirty cuz the air filter was horryble
    how can I clean tbd MAS?

    I think it needs the front abs sensors
    bout the exhaust leak idk where it Is exactly
    I knw it's after the cats
    cats are new. He put em on 4 months ago
    from gm

    1.I will be in Pleasanton this week, I won't ship it so you'll have to come pick it up.
    2. Couldn't tell you how to identify if it is an slp, only way you might be able to tell is if the shocks are yellow and not orange, which would be a sign of slp bilsteins which would probably mean it is.
    3. A car parts store would have maf cleaner, just take out the maf and spray the hell out of it a couple times.
    3.abs is a foreign language to me so you might just unplug it till you figure it out

    If you are serious about picking it up pm me and I'll give you my address and # to contact me. I am working tomorrow so let me know and i'll make myself available if you want help installing the sway bar, otherwise just come by whenever.
