Camaro ZL-1 Handling fix with KW Suspension

The top plate was bolted to the bottom part of the strut mount holding the strut in place.

The strut top is now in place.  Besides holding the top of the strut in a flex-free spherical bearing, the KW part allows the front suspension to be adjusted for more negative camber.

The brake lines, sway bar end links, and sensor wires are reattached into their respective brackets.

The strut bolts are tightened last.

Our KW Clubsport front struts are now in place.

Now it’s on to the rear suspension.


  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.
