A bad stance can kill the looks of even the coolest car. A jacked-up rake and a gap the size of the Grand Canyon over the front tire just looks bad. Back in the day we would grab a torch and slice a chunk out of the front coils. Sometimes it worked and sometimes, not so much. I remember one time when we cut off too much and had to run spring spacers until we could find another set at the local salvage yard. In truth, even when we cut them just right we were still doing nothing for, and most likely hurting, performance and drivability.

Today’s aftermarket offers an endless array of widgets to help you get your Camaro sitting pretty. One way is by going with a coilover suspension. The only problem is cost since it’s often a pricey proposition involving new control arms and sometimes a bit of fabrication. When we spied this QA1 Pro Coil system we were intrigued. It offers the benefits of a full-blown coilover system in what they bill as an easy to install package that doesn’t require messing with the GM control arms. It sounded like a sweet deal, so we ordered up a kit, borrowed a buddy’s Camaro, and decided to see for ourselves.
