Here is ours on H&R springs. No part number but they are the only springs they offer. Sportier than stock but not to aggressive.

Didn't want mine lowered too much. Vogtland Racing lowering Springs - just about ready for production & sale :) I like the looks, I like the feel. It is a little firmer, but I like that. She feels like she hugs the road a little better. A little over a 1" drop.

gawd indpowr I love your rims!

Michael_Js that looks great. How much did that cost, and how long did the install take?

Well, the install took about 2 1/2 hours and the price was more than right - free! It was the 2nd set of springs Vogtland made for the 2010 Camaro and I was their 2nd test car. The President/owner of the North America office, who is also the engineer, installed the springs. I'm very happy with them!

Also, to note, the front tires/wheels are the same as the rear - P275/40ZR20 & 20 x 9on all 4 corners :)

Thanks!
Michael J.

All of these lowered Camaros look great! Nice job everyone.

Indo - Any issues with the H&Rs and staggered fit wheels? Are those 20x10 on the rear? Did you cut your bumpstops?

Not sure of the part number(s), but these are Pedder's Xa adjustable coilovers. I got them from another forum member - mistercamaro69.
The ride quality is very similar to stock, maybe just a little tighter, at the settings i'm using now but this is adjustable.
The body roll is practically none - but I also installed Pfadt sway bars at the same time as the coilovers.
The best part with the coilovers though is having the car corner balanced. After scaling, the car feels very neutral and somehow lighter. This seems to really improve the handling and fun factor.
The car is dropped about 1.5" or so, corner balanced, and aligned with a little negative camber.

Thanks for all the compliments.

No issues at all and this is a DD.
Fronts are 22x9
Rears are 22x10.5

Also, it is lowered 1.4 F and 1.3 R

You know that you can go lower to get the best handling out of the car,
This is my car on the Pedders coilovers.

Great pic's and keep them comming, all these cars look sick. I love the stock 20's when the car is lowered. Anybody running the stock 20's with Nitto NT-555R "drag radial" 275/35/20 rear tires ?

WOW !!! Now thats a perfect stance and those 22's put it over the top

talwell 11-05-2009 04:29 PM

Here is my 2SS RS SIM when it was lowered - I did however take the springs off until I get a set of wheels that I think look better on the lowered ride height.

man that is a hot looking car!


here's some pics of mine below--it's an Eibach pro-kit set (1" all around) for the SS. Doesn't significantly impact ride quality, handles great, not too extreme.

CBH 11-05-2009 09:29 PM

Great looking cars !!!

Indo - that blue is stunning. Is that original color ? What tire size and offset are you running ? That is THE stance I'm looking for. Any idea the weight penalty for that wheel/tire combo ? I've seen posts saying stock 20" is about 65-70 lbs.

Camaro692 - what wheel/tire combo are you running ? I'm afraid of 22" since they're so huge you mainly run into truck wheels and tires.

Great pics guys.

camaro692 11-05-2009 10:40 PM

Iam running Lexani LX15's in 20x10 rear and 20x8.5 front. I own the tire shop my car is in front of so I have tried many tire combos. The tires on the car now are perfect, they were just put on today, 5 min before the pic was taken! They are nitto INVO 275/35r20 front and 295/35r20 rears. The pic is from a cell phone check in tomorrow and i will have cleaned the wheels and good camera pics

CBH 11-06-2009 07:10 AM

Can't wait for detailed photos. With so much experience on your own car and others, I'm curious about offset details, weight, etc. Also curious why you stuck with 20" instead of 22".
