Re: Do 20" wheels from a 2019 V6 Camaro fit?

All 4 are 8.5"? That is the front wheel, which is +25mm offset - in other words, compared to a stock wheel, they push out or "poke" another 20mm +/- compared to the stock wheel, PLUS they're another 1/2" wider. They'll work on front, may not work so well on the rear. Base Alpha Camaro wheels are 18x...

Re: 3:27 Chevy SS Diff' vs. 3:45 Camaro

Just to clarify - the pictured rear assembly was pulled from a 2014 SS, but was originally mounted in a 2016 SS - is that correct? Brembo rear brakes from the SS (360mm rotor) sedan clear the PPV steel wheel - confirmed myself when I had a puncture of the RR position while traveling and installed th...

Re: 3:27 Chevy SS Diff' vs. 3:45 Camaro

think his picture came from the parts farm , they are 600ish bill , i think my 14 cradle has both sway bar mount designs from what i can tell What you mean is the crossmember & lower control arms allow both 14 & 15-17 sway bars to mount, yes I do agree. Possibly even 14-17 PPV have these same provi...

Re: front and rear sway bar from 2014 ppv

My local parts source (Chevy dealer) tells me that there is stock on hand for this part at Lansing MI, and GM is still catching up on delivery post-strike. There are aftermarket options, too. https://www.cspracing.com/whiteline-plus-front-sway-bar-2008-2009-pontiac-g8-gt-gxp-2014-2017-chevy-ss-sedan...

Re: front and rear sway bar from 2014 ppv

I had not given serious thought to selling it - sorry if I gave that impression. The bar does list as a good PN, but no idea about actual available inventory in the system. I will check with my source on Monday. I think the money "saved" buying from a private party will be eaten up by the cost of sh...

Re: Brake Speculation

With the right wheel, I've seen the 370/6 setup on a G8 GXP with 18's This package is most common for SS sedan owners, and in their case, the stock 19" wheel needs a 3mm spacer for spoke to caliper body clearance. The 370 rotor is 34mm thick, where the 355/4 (stock SS) combination has a rotor that i...

Re: front and rear sway bar from 2014 ppv

I have a new 26mm front bar, standard for 14-17 SS & PPV. 2011-2013 PPV front bar is 24mm, just one click larger than your G8 - not worth the effort. Rear PPV bar is 16mm for 2011-2013, and 20mm (same as GXP) for 14-17 PPV If you REALLY wanted to upgrade, the rear bar is going to make more differenc...

Re: Brake Speculation

wheel diameter isn't always the issue with the 6-piston/370 brakes - it CAN be the wheel choice does not provide clearance on the front/outboard face of the caliper. Hope you are lucky with the 20" Camaro wheels!

The OEM wheels used with the ZL1 were specific to that model.

Re: 3.27 differential

I think the issue is finding the V6 MT diff, as it was not nearly as common as SS AT, and its not clear if all V6 MT were limited slip.
