lowered, gfx, 22s. driveability?
 
Hey guys i have a 2010 camaro ss and just got the street scene splitter, waiting to mount it but now that i see it i realize its pretty low. I am about to buy springs and was going with bmr 1.4" but now im thinking 1" might be as far as i should go. Also looking at 22s with low pro tires so overall tire height hopefully close to the same. Anyone have set up like this that can help with how low you are now and how hard it is driving n getting into places. Thanks

I'm dropped about an inch with the eibach springs. I have the SLP lip and the ZL1 rockers and 22" wheels. I'm in FL too. No issues. You have to be careful going in some driveways and I back into all parking spots to avoid the parking blocks.

That helps some because i really want it lowered with this lip but need it to be fairly driveable. I dont mind some hassle, my last camaro was lowered 1.25 and never had issues but no front lip

Most of our customers in your situation end up going with our BMR 1" lowering springs (SP019) just to be safe and to make sure they have ample clearance. Honestly you could probably get away with our BMR 1.4" lowering springs (SP022) but you would just have to be that much more careful due to having a little less clearance. I would recommend going with our BMR 1" lowering springs (SP019) because it will give you that nice aggressive lowered stance without sacrificing too much ground clearance.

I have the ground effect w 1.4 front drop. Just back in when you can or stop short. Parking blocks are the biggest problem. I have stuffed the front splitter but you can't see it

I guage my parking pretty good by looking under my door mirror. When I see the curb or strip under it I stop and I'm usually about 1-2' back when I get out.
