Re: Camaro Wheels not fitting

the wheels absolutely should (will) fit - are you removing steel wheels? Zeta application wheels are all the same hub bore/register size and do interchange. Check for rust buildup on the hub register (the part that extends beyond the rotor/wheel mounting surface). Use some elbow grease, rust-buster,...

Re: Time for new tires

Yes, I certainly recall the trailer hitch pursuit and your mention of boat towing....sure do miss CP. I don't know if we drove him over the edge, but he was such a great guy to work with, we really benefitted from his assistance. Fully understand all of the other reasons for keeping PPV ride height....

Re: Time for new tires

Tom, Some things here for your consideration.... My own experience has been predominantly with Continental high-performance W & Y rated all-season tires - I did have a set of Michelin AS3 19" tires with one set of wheels I used....the 19's look nice, but I wanted more sidewall to ease up the ride co...

Re: Caliper Guide Pins

so you didn't pay attention during disassembly? My past experience on this was the top position has the rubber tipped pin....but your best source is to get the SI (service information) or equivalent - ALLDATA, etc - a cooperative dealer, or someone here with access to the info, should be able to hel...

Re: Quickjack

These cars have specific lift points identified--I'm always concerned when I see this (my) car being lifted at some shops using this style of lift setup. Granted, the load area is very well spread with this type of lift, but it often - and perhaps unintentionally - puts a great deal of weight on the...

Re: G8 Fender Liner for Caprice

I recall from a past lookup on a GM parts website that the front wheelhouse liners are the same, at least for 11-13 PPV & G8. The later cars changed to a soft woven mesh plastic liner as a means of reducing tire noise intrusion into the body. Are the parts from RA new or used, and do they have GM-so...

Re: SS Sedan Springs under the 2011 Caprice PPV

The shocks or struts (note that Rock Auto lists them differently by source) are all made by Monroe in Australia. The Monroe branded parts cost less, however there's not been a determination of whether they're different in valving. The Holden-spec front struts were the biggest issue as far as harshne...
