I agree with SteveC. I have a 2000 Z28 which has been going sideways since I bought it new. Last year I finally started to research why the LS1 F-body did that and so combining the high low end torque plus flemsy factory suspension components will give you low stick, torque steer, etc.
I bought a set of LCAs (lower control arms) from BMR, a set of relocation brackets, put them in and it was like driving a different car. It sticks very well, got rid of the wheel hop and torque steer but I can still burn rubber IF I want to, not every time I take off. All launches are straight!
Give it a shot bro, you'll be happy. Then go after your shocks and springs, torque arm, sways, etc. BMR makes very good parts and I recommend them. You can either get the parts straight from their site or others such as ws6store.com < good prices.Camaro Z28/SS...40+ years of mustang humiliation.

I bought my SS with the stock Goodyear F1's. Only had 3000 miles on them. Tread was nice. I couldnt hook up to save my life.
I picked up the fuzion's because they were cheap and i tend to go through tires rather quickly and they hook up just fine. I took a trip home one year in the SS and drove through a nasty storm, tires did great in the rain also.
Only paid like 400 bucks for all 4 tires.
