Camaro ZL-1 Handling fix with KW Suspension

Once the top mounts are installed, the lower control arm is raised up and the lower shock mount bolt is installed.

Once the lower shock mount bolt is in place, the outer lower control arm to spindle bolt is installed and tightened.

Our rear KW Clubsport shock is now in place.

Next, we installed the KW module to fool the Magneride system so the ECU thinks it’s still in place.  These are the clips that hold the module to nearby body seams.

We plug the module into the OEM connector.

And clip it to the inner fender seam.

Our installation is almost done.  We just need to set the ride height.


  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.
