Thinking about heading up to New England Dragway this Saturday 9/7 for test and tune. Curious to see how much the suspension helped or hurt the launch.

So you have it aligned and ready to go? What about the rear end was that all panhard and track bar you were hearing back there?

Not ready to go. Went to get it inspected at lunch today and it failed, ugggghhh. I was like WTF. Sure enough the drivers front has a little wiggle in it, think it's the wheel bearing. I replaced this wheel bearing about a year ago. I know everything was tight after I put it together, I checked. The only thing I can think of is when they aligned it they pulled on something to hard.

It's a sign Poke

Only kidding. My wife's wagon eats bearings and I have no reason as to why. Just replaced the passenger side before my trip to PA this summer. Decided to replace the axle too because the splines into the hub were sloppy. This could have caused the axle nut to back off over time which would do the bearing too at that point. We'll get there.

Installed a new wheel bearing Saturday and just got it inspected!

Now to find some time to head up to the track.

I thought for a while my access to the board had been changed. no posts by anyone.

By aligned I assume we are talking about the front end. I didn't think your Camaro year had an independent rear suspension set-up (not with a Panhard bar anyway).

I could understand the bar being too long if you are sitting above or below stock ride height as the rear swings in an arc centered around the frame mounting point of the Panhard bar. If it is at factory ride height I would question if the ends are screwed in far enough.

Dave...I put different springs on the car which lowered the ride height by approximately 1.5", that's why I needed an adjustable panhard bar.
