    How to stiffen up rear suspension?

    I have a 1994 Camaro with KYB gas a-just shocks and LS1 springs. Any way I can stiffen up the rear suspension?

    I have 20's on the car and with a large dip or something the rear passenger tire rubs.
    This is ONLY on the passenger side for some reason.

    Keep in mind the back seat is a subwoofer box that weighs about 250-300 lbs or so. So that does not help at all.

    Why not just BFH the inner fender, or you could put a drag bag in the rear.

    Take a big hammer and beat the inner fender in. Thats what alot of people do with wide tires. And a drag bag is a air bag that goes in the rear spring to stiffin it up.

    Summit Racing G7700 3way adjustable drag shocks set to 50/50, I have these shocks and I'm lowered on BMR rear springs. I can jump up and down in the rear and I still have plenty of clearance between the tire and quarter panel. I never bottom out on the bump stops or scrub the tire.

    Why 20's? They dont fit the looks of these cars at all... but to each his own.

    The reason for the passenger side hitting is because the car is designed to sit uneven with it is unloaded, and should level out when the driver is in the car. The passenger side will pretty much always sit a little lower than the driver side, though.
