My car has been @ JRS this winter for a suspension upgrade. I selected JRS for several reasons, The fact That the JRS APEX system is track Tested offers the best geometry for my plans, uses OE C6 parts that I can service easily.. I did a lot of research on JRS and got rave's reviews from everyone. Also he had great idea in regards to my objectives, adding custom flare and something different for a Gen 1 Camaro. In the first photo below is one such example of thinking out of the box, the trunk inclosure not only look's killer but it also provide for 3.5 inch tail pipes around the Watts and a large fuel tank for the road.
The Watts and torque are system is a perfect system for me. In the This pic is the JRS front subframe all powder coated and ready to install. I also really like that Billet shock mount... it's like Jewelry to me :-) Jake has his own shock Dyno to tune in all four corrners we are going with Three way adjustable Bilstiens spring rate I dont know off hand
Next steps are to get in on the ground, weld in the cage and raise the tunnel and then coat the Bottom.
Before it went to Jakes I had installed new toe boards, inner rockers, One piece Floor, tulip panels and Mini Tubs.
Anyway let me know what you think, questions comments welcome.

Default Rim Tire Bling

I wanted to add some pic of the tire tuck and wheels that I chose. I am a little turned off by the really deep Lip so you will notice the majority of the rim is all on the inside.. 18X11.5 335/30/18

XLTech your project is looking great and I agree with what you said about Jake. Track proven stuff and an innovative builder. He's a really good dude too...
