Under-steer and the 2010 Camaro
All of our Pfadt Camaro sway bar kits require major engineering
revisions from the factory bar packages, with the primary goal of
eliminating the under-steer that the 5th Generation Camaro is
notorious for. Basic vehicle dynamics say that to eliminate
under-steer you must increase the roll stiffness in the rear of the
car - and our rear bar does exactly that. Increasing the rear sway
bar rate is part of how we achieve such great balance. Say for
instance a sway bar package offers huge increases in the stiffness
of the front bar with out increasing the rear appropriately, your
Camaro is going to suffer from increased under-steer compared to
the OEM sway bars!
The video below highlights some of the on-car testing that went
into our sway bars. This video is a demo to show how much you can
affect the balance of the car with simple sway bar changes. The day
we shot this video, we tested several packages which is a critical
part of proving our engineering before building the product.
Our sway bar packages are known for being the best available on
the market because we test and design for each specific vehicle we
make parts for, and the ZL Spec sway bars are no exception. We
start from a blank sheet of paper for every suspension package and
we thoroughly track test our bars to obtain the optimum
Our font and rear bars offer three points of adjustment to allow
you to fine tune the balance of your car to your tire package and
driving style. Whether you're on the street or at the track, you'll
have the adjustment you need to dial in perfect handling. The rear
bar is even adjusted without needing to fully disassemble! (see
graphic below) We include greasable graphite-impregnated
polyurethane bushings and new mounting brackets for a complete
