One thing I do notice is the rear passenger side makes a scratching noise... very very faint and it follows the wheel at the exact same speed.. if the wheel gets faster so does it... I can here it but not that well my hearing isn't too good when it comes to soft noises... (apparently I have a big decibel loss in my hearing for soft noises) but I do hear it... I remember one time I had the rear axle jacked up and my mechanic friend of mine who was trying to figure out where my noise was coming from, spun the rear passenger wheel and heard the same soft scratching noise and went hmmm.... But he didn't say anything after that.


As for my poping noise on the passenger side.. since I losend and tightend my lugs it hasn't come back, and I've driven it for many miles and on the freeway so I guess that one mechanic was right and it was just a gap between the wheel and disk rotor

A soft and longish scratching noise is most likely brake discs that are slightly warped or half shaft end that is kinked to one side a bit and allows the brake discs to come into contact with brake shoes every rotation.

Sure it isn't the dust shield/backing plate making the screeching noise? Know sometimes I've had slightly bent ones or a piece of gravel/rock stuck in mine. And the faster I went so did the noise since the shield's stationary.

Is that a new 426hp Camaro SS in your stable? Nice!

Yea 426HP 420FT lbs of torque... lol... Had it for like 4 months now... The car is scary fast... lol 0-60 in 4.3 seconds.. The brakes are crazy on it too, I went 100mph in just a few seconds and slammed on the brakes as hard as i could and my eyeballs were poping out of my head and dangling on strings... It stopped within seconds lol.. Has great handeling too, but it is noisy on the floorboard I hear every little rock that flings up on it.. I also think the Jeep's suspension is softer even with original shocks.. The Camaro you feel every little bump on the road, and the seats are hard as a rock I hate the seats, and the seat belts are like 2 feet behind you and they are impossible to just grab like the Jeep.

But I still love it, gets about the same gas mileage as the 5.9 does.. Im averaging only about 12.5mpg in the city on it atm lol, its nice to use 87 in the thing but I heard it ping a few times and while I know the engine corrects that.. I'd rather not lose power doing so, so it gets 93 just like the 5.9 lol.. If you think the 5.9 engines are big.. pff.. the Camaro is huge when you open the hood. I think the EPA ratings on the Camaro are a load of ****... If I reset it and don't push the car I cannot for the love of god get the so called 16mpg city that chevy claims it can get.. and 24mpg freeway lol.. pftt good luck

Does sound scary fast and brings back memories of the muscle car days I grew up in. Z/28's, GTO's, 442's, etc.. Believe the fastest car I ever drove was a 1968 competition 426-hemi Roadrunner w/dual 4-barrels. They even had 2 more leaf springs on one side of the rear than the other it created so much torque. What's funny is it developed about the same HP (425) and probably torque as in your Camaro SS which has to be a whole lot lighter. So know your's must fly!

Problem with old muscle cars is they aren't really that fast... lol. I've seen a lot of older cars where the owner thinks his car is the **** speed wise and its slower then a 4.0 ZJ..

The Camaro SS we have is the 1SS meaning not RS package, like fancy LED Halo lights, and no leather seats or stripe through the middle of the paint.. I mean it has power everything just no leather ect.. My moms friend purchased a black RS 6 cylinder for the same price.. he paid like $38,000 with taxes and that's how much we paid for the V8 with no RS package.. TBH I'd rather have the V8.. there is no point having a Camaro or mustang with a V6 in my opinion..

If a 5.9 gets 7 seconds 0-60 imagine 4 seconds ? Its literally 2x faster then my 5.9 "almost" lol.. My mom wanted a used SRT8 Grand... but the SRT8 is slower then the Camaro and honestly I think srt8's are butt ugly, and the interior is very plain. Here is a pic of it at the dealership.. It looks black, but its actually a really really dark kind of purple.. At night its black.. during the day with the sun on it its purple, during the evening it looks blackish/purple.. It changes color during the day... Its a new color they had

Cameros are nice, but I'm a mopar person for sure. I'm trying to talk myself into a tuner for the 13 Ram that was recently acquired...granted it only pushes 390Hp and 408Tq, but it still gets up and goes. Does better when you stomp it at dead on 30 than it does from take off.

Real nice Camaro Candymancan! While maybe some of the older muscle cars may not seem all that fast to current standards that competition 426 hemi 1968 Roadrunner I drove was definitely fast! It would go 0-60 in a little over 5 secs and I remember hitting about 110mph in a little over 1/4 mile in front of my HS at night. Lol.
