4th Generation Camaro Parts


The generation 4 Camaro spanned the years 1993-2002 and would be the greatest and last generation. Declining sales would eventually lead to cancellation after the year 2002. With all new sleek styling, rack-and-pinion steering, new short-arm/long-arm suspension and new plastic front fenders, they were the fastest and most powerful Camaros ever built. Model lineup for this generation was simplified to a base Sport Coupe powered by a 3.4 liter version of GM’s V6 and a Z28 with Corvette’s 5.7 liter LT1 small-block V8 under-rated at 275hp. The convertible was once again, not available.

The LT1 was easily the most powerful small-block installed in Camaro since its namesake 1970 LT-1, and considering the change from gross to net ratings, probably more powerful. The Z28 could be ordered with either a four speed automatic or a six speed manual transmission. With prices starting at only $17000, it was a true performance bargain. The most desirable ’93 Chevy Camaro was probably the black and white Z28 replicas of the Indianapolis 500 pace car for that year.  Unlike in 1982, replicas of 1993 were identical to the actual pace car in which no mechanical modifications had been necessary to lead the race. With only a minor change of a significantly stiffer chassis, the Convertible returned for 1994.

The base Camaro adopted GM’s “3800” 2000-horsepower V6 as an option in 1995 which was significantly more powerful and refined and would become the only V6 in Camaros. This would make the least powerful 1996 Camaro still more powerful than the most powerful 1984 Chevrolet Camaro. The big Camaro news in 1996 was the return of the SS. Chevrolet and SLP Engineering teamed up to bring back the SS name by taking the Z28 and adding engine tweaks and 17" five-spoke wheels fitted with BFGoodrich tires. This made the SS the first Camaro to break the 300 net bhp barrier with an impressive 305bhp rating.

In celebration of Chevrolet Camaro’s 30th anniversary, Chevy offered a specially optioned white Z28 with orange stripes and orange houndstooth upholstery which was just like the 1969 pace car. The Camaro’s first and only styling update in 1998 was the addition of a new front fascia. The big news however, was under the hood with a new all-aluminum Corvette small-block engine, the LS-1. It was the first all-aluminum Camaro engine since the 1969 ZL-1 and was rated at a strong 305bhp. Chevy also made the SS model official by producing it themselves and it featured the LS-1 with standard Ram Air to generate 320 bhp.

It was obvious by 2001 that the Chevrolet’s Camaro days were numbered and 2002 would prove to be the last year for them. Changes were understandably minimal and included a new sound system, a standard automatic transmission for V6 convertibles, and a new power steering cooler for Z28s. But the 35th (and last) anniversary of the Camaro was celebrated with a special graphics package for the Z28 SS coupe and convertible. Though the package was attractive, it was hardly the sendoff that Camaro enthusiasts had hoped for.
