ya, i thought it was a good deal too... and i really dont care about the mileage... my only quarrel is that when i start it up in the morning and the engine is cold, i hear a slight knock... after its warmed up it goes completely away...

i will be lowering it after i get new wheels, prolly 18x9 front, and 18x10.5 rear Z06 style, black w/ chrome lip. not really sure how i want to go about lowering it, i just want something mild, and i dont want too feel every little bump in the road either. should i worry about bump-steer? i had a lowered mustang a couple years back, and the bump-steer sucked.

You need to check to make sure the filter on the oil sump isn't clogged or gummed up. That knocking at start up adds up!

I don't know if the Camero has bump steer if you lower it. My friend in the TSBA and HSN (OskarZ28) has lowered his. He said it made a world of difference.

As for the knock, that is typical Chevy and it is piston slap. They do that right off the factory floor.

What is piston slap? It doesn't sound any better than a clogged sump. Is there another term for it?
