Go take another picture of your fronts after the Maggie install

I have the Pfadt springs and the Maggie as well. Front dropped almost 2" from stock with the springs and the S\C.
635 mm is where it sits now. Pedders calls that a maximum drop WITH coilovers.

I picked up 600hp-lpe's XA's cause I'm tired of dragging my headers over speedbumps

I had my G8 fully Pedderized with the regular Xa coilovers and it was great! You won't be disappointed with the Xa's. At the next autocross in you are more than welcome to do a ride along in the Camaro. And when the streets and temperatures are a bit warmer outside take me up on that ride. You won't regret it.

Pedders Track II installed by Haddad Motorsports. No complaints at Track days in Willow Springs, Open Road Racing in Nevada, Mojave Mile Shootout and sometimes a Daily Driver.

You'll also attain harmony with the universe and world peace.

I would highly recommend using a Pedders Street Xa that includes urethane inserts for the sub-frame and radius bushes. This adds stability to the foundation of your 5th Gen so you can take full advantage of the Xa coilovers. Pedders packages are discounted. In this case, the bushes are almost free.

I love my Xa's. I'm at max drop out back and have 10mm between the lock rings up front. I can't go any lower out back...Justice Pete says that my OEM heights were about 10mm higher than average (693mm front, 700 mm rear), which would explain why my car sits a bit higher in the rear with the coilovers fully adjusted down. I think I'm going to go ahead and take the fronts down all the way until the rings are touching.

True. But it's the rear of your car that looks so much stealthier than mine in the pics.

On the street, the XA's are a lot of fun. You can set the height where you want them. Playing with the dampening, hard/soft - 30 positions, is a bonus. Set them hard when you want to play. set them soft when you have a date.

The XA's are made for aggressive street driving. You would love them compared to the stock setup. They are like having really good sex, and leaving you extremely satisfied, wanting more of what they offer.

The supercar shocks are like having an orgy. They will please you to no end. You just can't get enough...
