The Ctek charger comes with round “ring lugs” for a permanent connection to the battery and also provides “spring clamps” for temporary connection.

Your Camaro allows for charging the battery under the hood too. Either the ring lugs or spring clamps may be used. I prefer under the hood instead of going into the trunk.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Yes, it is a personal preference and I believe either way is acceptable.

Charging from the front is no problem, however a jump should be done from the rear. Just my opinion.

The owners manual states to jump from the front. Even has a picture

Oh I’m sure, I just don’t like doing it from the front. I’ll amend my note that it’s a personal decision. I don’t like running high amperage through long cables.
