    Lowering Kits?

    Hey all I'm looking to lower my SS Vert a bit. I've got 17" Z06's on there now with 275/40R17's and there's just too much gap between tire and fenders especially in the rear. Suspensions stock. Any suggestions to brand? Drop recommendations? I'm going to add sub fram connectors as well so I'm not sure if I need to take that into consideration as well?

    I have the Eibach 1.2" lowering kit with BMR weld in sub frame connectors. It works out perfectly. Heres a pic B4 & after.

    Gorgeous and even sexier with the SS hood and Manta stripe. That's what I'm looking for thanks. And no clearance issues with the SFC's?

    Did you change out your shocks as well? How's the drivability?

    Mine is lowerd 2 inches i belive I have the KYB adjustables unfortunatley it hits the drivers side of the y-pipe fairly often but thats to be expected in a lowered street car even with my 16's on right now it looks good. the factory height looks like a 4x4 camaro.

    No rubbing as of yet. No I did not change out my springs as I was told it was not necessary. It rides beautiful, handles a he**a lot better, and looks faster just sitting still. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
