Some of you are looking for the ultimate reaction and 60 foot times on your drag race builds or your weekend comp Camaros. We know where we can help most, and that is getting the right suspension underneath your car. In response to all of the drag racing inquiries we receive, we are releasing our dedicated Drag Racing Coilovers for the Camaro5! Designed from the ground up as a no compromise straight line solution, the Pfadt Drag Coilover Package features custom spring rates to reduce wheel hop on launch and hard shifts, and to maximize weight transfer at launch.
After hundreds of hard drag launches during testing, spring rates and damper lengths were chosen to allow for extra front end lift and rear end squat. The softer front and rear spring rates we selected allows the front end to fully extend, transfer weight quickly to the rear end, and have the rear stay planted. This weight transfer is key to straight line traction by shifting the weight from the front end back to the rear wheels.
As with our Street Coilover kits, static ride height is fully adjustable from about stock ride height to 1.5inches lower than stock. The dampers have 20 individual damping adjustment positions for fine tuning the car while launching. The installation of these coilovers requires no cutting or modification of any kind to install on the vehicle; set the ride height and have fun!
This is a competition level drag race package, and isn't for everyone. Because drag racing poses unique challenges to suspension design that don't necessarily translate well to superior cornering ability, handling will be very different from what you have come to expect from our Street Coilover packages. With the dampers adjusted to full stiff your car will be very capable on the street, but over all a bit softer than stock.

These coilovers are custom built to order and currently we have batches built in house on a consistant basis. Once we sell them, we will continue to take pre-orders for our next small batch, and the wait is worth it. We feel that when used in conjunction with other rear suspension components to mitigate wheel hop, such as solid subframe mounts, differential bushings, trailing arms and good tires, this is the best suspension for the serious drag racer. Compromises aside, it will all be worth it the next time you line up next to that Mustang and are able to finally put your full power down to the ground!
In addition to all of the drag-specific development and features, these coilovers carry all of the standard features and materials found in our Street/Road Race coilovers. Features like inverted design for lower unsprung weight, monotube shock design for consistent damping values, lightweight material and design, easily accessed adjustable damping, available custom spring rates, and reliable, durable, and quiet mounts top and bottom.
