    Suspension Question

    I was going to put new shocks/struts on my Camaro (BMR or Eibach Springs and Bilkstein shocks). Is it necessary to also get adjustable panhard to re-center the rearend and lower control arms and re-location brackets.


    I was only going to get the springs and shocks

    Thanks

    Not ABSOLUTELY necessary. But you want to check to be sure. I was going with wider tires, so I had to have the rear re-centered.

    depends on how much you are lowering your car. when you do get a pan hard, get an adjustable one without rod ends, they are not weather proof and are usually the weakest link in the system (most manufacturers use cheap ones to boot...yay!) and when they explode they EXPLODE!

    rod-ends, are better than polyurethane regardless.
    If you go rod-ends, make sure you get QA1s.
    even if you lower the car a good amount, you might not need to center it... i make sure it's well centered when @ bottom out, that's when you have the least clearance on either side of the tires.
