    if you like the body kit...keep it...maybe change out the rear spring for air bag springs..that way you could raise it to get to the jack points.

    i like the look of the cars lowered over the ground effects, i actually like the z28 and v8 birds without the appearance packages better, esp slammed, but its all relative to your tastes... also what u plan on doing with ur car in the future

    That's a good idea.
    I think it's usually pretty expensive to do that though, maybe not.
    Either way, with air bags you could keep the ground f/x and have the car slammed to the ground.

    for the rear its something around 400 for parts or so...the front is expensive..not rear.

    body kits are style, dropped without one looks like a carload of fatties squattin the bitch. camaros are too rounded at the bottom to look good dropped without a kit.

    Good for you, you make 1
    once it's lowered it'll look even better. Look up a pic of a lowered camaro without a body kit, they look funny as hell with their rounded front fascia and sides.

    I never have been of body kits. IMO they never look quite right. And I have a ricemobile too.

    i love the color, just not too sure about how the side skirts tie into the front. the front looks nice, and i like the side skirts too, but they just don't go together. looks like factory sides, with an aftermarked front piece.

    cause the rear that goes with the kit made it 110% euro, still deciding on how to finish it out. a drop may be coming soon and the rear will need something but I don't know what
