hi all.
ive been a member of this forum for a while but rarely post due to the fact that most of the stuff is way over my head.

i was thinking about putting a coilover setup in my third gen camaro.
its an 85 iroc but has a 350 swapped in.

i have seen drag coilover setups online, but no street setups.

first question, is there really an advantage?
second question, assuming that there is an advantage to a coilover front suspension, which i am assuming there is, can i use a drag setup and modify the spring rates and shock absorbers to work for general fast street driving?
third question, is this even possible on an otherwise stock third gen?

Spohn makes the only setup I would even consider. That being said I wouldn't run it. I also haven't heard much feedback on there setups.

Ground control makes a weight jack setup for these cars that doesn't put any undo stress on portions of the car that weren't designed for it. It also doesn't cut into your tire clearance.
