Another option if you have a 2014+ with the 26mm bar is the Nolathane REV004.0228 Black Sway Bar Mount Bushing.
It’s a greaseless design with an interior PTFE coating

Looks good, I have a set of those with no tires. Are they the stock Camaro size tires, or did you move the ppv tires over?

I switched my TPMS sensors over along with my Goodyear tires that still had about 80% tread life

Good looking setup, what size wheels and tires are you running and are you having any tire rubbing issues when car is loaded down .
Thank you for your time.

I added the factory LATCH brackets to the backseat after they finally came off backorder. Didn't take any pics, but if someone else is searching the brackets use six m8x1.25 nuts to hold them in along with the middle two seatbelt buckle brackets. The car seats are way more secure now.

Stock tire size with 32mm offset wheels, the wheel offset is not ideal but they were cheap and came with snow tires. I haven't had any rubbing and I've thrown it through some pretty wicked corners. But I could see them rubbing with enough weight.
