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.

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.

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

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".

I used the Eibach - I really liked how they came out but I did not like how they looked with the factory wheels. Once I locate a set of wheels I like I will out them back on.

Yes, it is ABM. Tires are 265/30/22 and 295/25/22 Do not know my offset.

There is non, wheels weigh the same as stock, 28lbs front and 32lbs rear. But, it comes at a price. Light weight and larger are not cheap.

Springs are pretty easy to install yourself if your careful.

Can anyone give me a logical or even practical reason to lower your car? Anyone?

Because it looks a thousand times better! Nothing like a car that looks like a 4x4

plus there's this little added benefit called better handling.

Other than those two pointless reasons there is no need to lower you car.
