Check the end links on your front sway bar. If they're metal (very likely), you have a FE3 bar. If they're plastic, the bar is FE2.

Both the SS and V6 1LE Camaro come with a FE3 suspension, but the springs on each are not the same. The springs are different between the two FE3 packages to compensate for the weights of the V6 and...

The short answer is that you can only easily swap the front brakes on a LT if you're installing the SS Brembo brakes. The rears are much, much more difficult because the parking brake design is...

2017 V6 LT front caliper is 12.6 in. (13592623). 2017 SS front caliper is 13.6 in. (22991317). Rears cannot be swapped because of differences in the parking brake on LT and SS.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll go with 245s on front and 275s on the rears like a SS. I'll check into 19-inch to get the unsprung weight down (like GM did on the ZL1 1LE).
