I like the looks of the eibachs. Just right, not too low.

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.

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.

Well beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

So by 4 x 4 you are referring to cars that are of normal height?

And having your tires just millimeters from the housing gives you better handling?

I guess I don't get it but then again I really don't care.

I also would like to know why certain groups of people wear their pants down below their ass?

Really tradosaurus???? The 5th gen camaro is way way way too high from the factory. Seriously they look like a 4x4. Even a mild 1" drop makes the car look like a sports car

Well I can still see some space between the tire and the wheel well. This isn't a 4 x 4 thread you know.

Seriously it looks good. How much on average to lower a Camaro?

to each their own guys....i personally like the look of the lowered camaro, but I also like not having to worry about messing up the front end on speedbumps and parking blocks...so ill leave mine alone. Now if this was just a playtoy car....i more than likely would drop it an inch to and inch & an half, but its a daily driver for me. ;-)

dropping the car 1 inch wont make driving over speed bumps and stuff any different. Now those with ground effects might have to watch it a bit more. I'm going with H&R's as it provides the best stance IMO. Every car I've ever owned has been lowered so I'm used to driving cars like this.

These cars look nice. Lowered any more than that, and it looks broken.



Ya, why do those people wear their pants half way, or more, down their ass? There should be a fix for that!

REALLY?!?!? Obvisoulsy, you must be "new" to the sports/muscle car scene.
Yeah, I see the relation between the lowering of cars and with people wearing their pants below their ass. Don't be a jack ass!!
