Camaro ZL-1 Handling fix with KW Suspension

Next, we removed the brake line, the ABS sensor line, sway bar end links, and the cable that controls the Magneride shocks damping.

We removed the two bolts holding the strut to the spindle.

Now the front strut could be removed.

KW Supplies these modules to plug into the harness where the Magneride coils were disconnected.  The module emulates the Magneride shock and prevents the check engine light from coming on.

The KW modules clip to the inner fender body seam.

The solid aluminum plate replaces the rubber-lined OEM one to directly couple the strut to the body.

The strut was lifted into place.


  1. Didn’t see anything about trimming bumpstops. Did the KWs come with new ones?

    I always think the name ‘pillow ball’ is misleading. I have no idea why it’s called that. If anything, it should be called ‘hard ball.’

  2. I would have loved to see some comparative DDC vs v3/clubsport vs stock testing… I get that these are personal cars, and products bought for a purpose.

    But still to have an electronic system replaced with an equal but aftermarket electronic system interests me greatly. Not to mention the tuning aspect that is possible with these.

    1. Clubsports are preferable to DDC when it comes to more serious performance. DDC is more like a sports/comfort kind of damper.
