    also an adjustable torque arm because you change the pinion angle when you lower the car

    to do it properly yes you need all those ..also a adj. torq arm is highly recommended ....it is on my list of things to get for sure...i run very strong but i know i will need it soon.

    Just keep spending money haha so if I don't have a torque arm am I damaging the car or am I just losing traction?

    I have 19s in the back and I want to get a lowering kit for my '99 Z28. I was looking at the Stranos, but I'm not sure if they'll be problems with rubbing. Does anyone have 19s on their lowered Camaro. Also shocks, KYB AGX or Tokico HP? Or is their better for my set up?

    i have adjustable torque arm sportlines and qa1 shocks in the rear, my traction is fairly good when 19" corvette wheels and O K tires. My torque arm is still 2 degrees off tho, very small whine noise when reversing. Im buying all suspension piece before i go and buy a H/C package.

    Not sure what you are referring too here.

    Please explain a little better what you mean by 'more adjustments with lowering springs'
    Lowering springs cannot be adjusted.
    If you purchase adjustable suspension parts, then of course things will be adjustable.
    Just not 100% sure what you are referring too.

    It takes a while to get everything adjusted where you want.
    An alignment shop should be able to do it for you much faster.

    Depending on certain things...I will still adjust my torque arm from time to time.

    depending on the rim width...a adj. panhard bar is suggested if not required

    For the C6 Corvette rims, they are 9.5 inches wide...which i believe are the same dimensions as the WS6 rims. So i don't know anything about adj. panhard bars...care to educate me?

    you dont need a adj. panhard for fitment with 9.5" width

    the adjustable panhard bar adjusts /centers your rear end on the horizontal axis of the car..so basically centers your car left and right wise in relation to the rest of the car....with all my mods ..the adj. panhard bar really tied everything together for me..made the car feel soooo much tighter

    No, only unless the offset has borderline to much/little +offset (more than +56, less than +35).
