Did run into one problem ...The Foose legend 22`s has 2 Valve stems ..The valve stem on the back side of the wheel would hit the E Brake Cable making a Ticking sound ......I fixed it with some wire ties for now but will have to come up with a better solution ....Only put on about 30 miles since Install but everything seams A Ok

Yes i had a shop do it ....it was the owner of the shop that ended up doing the work so he was answering phone calls and what not so its hard for me to say how long it took but I am guessing with the install and alignment 4 maybe 5 Hours...Can`t tell you how much he charged me cause i left without paying

Looked easy enough to me ......Couple of times I had to help him put bolts in while he lined things up....I did not watch them put the new Springs into the Struts so I can`t help you there.....I know you can do it on Jack Stands but a lift would be the best for sure

Looking good man. It looks bad to the bone. Hope to see it at some of the Camaro shows.

After I parked next to Gforce8's lowered Camaro I was really wanting that. He lowered his 1 inch and really made it look perfect.
