We recommend Hotchkis springs for a 1" drop and Pfadt for 1.25" Both springs are great.

Yes. Pfadt redesigned the springs to work on both the V6 and V8 models.

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

..one more thing. In regards to cutting bump stops, I will NEVER run a spring that requires a bump stop to be cut. It's there for 2 reasons.
1) Stopping hard parts from hitting/shock bottoming out
2) Keeping the shock within its correct operating range

Trimming it shouldn't be an issue for #1, but taking a shock out of its operating range is why they die incredibly fast and performance suffers terribly as well. I don't care what any manufacturer says, its not ok in my book to trim a bump stop. My 2 cents, take it for what its worth.

Thanks for any info. you give. Much appreciated..
We honestly feel it is hard to beat the price, performance, and quality of our BMR V6 specific lowering springs. They lower the car 1.2" which will give the car a nice aggressive stance without sacrificing too much ground clearance or driveability. We also stand behind our springs 100% by offering a lifetime warranty against springs sag so you are covered. If you have any other questions I can help you out with let me know.

I'd say first ask yourself why you want to lower your car. Is it for looks or performance? You can easily lower your car without affecting ride at all by changing wheel and tire sizes, but if you're going for the look of filling up the fender, that's probably not the way to go.

You should also look really carefully at the spring rates of lowering springs. Some springs out there have the worst imaginable rates for a Camaro and upset the balance and induce even more understeer in a car that already pushes.

I know you also posted asking about alignments in the area. You really ought to go and talk this out with a shop that knows what they're doing instead of just guessing at what you want to do. I still recommend you go and talk to the guys at Behe Performance. They really know Camaros and have built a bunch of street, show, and full race cars.

I have the Eibach springs, lowered ~1"
I love the handling (yes it is stiff) and look.
I do NOT love NOT being able to get a jack under the car, so I have to use race ramps. And yes I have a very low profile jack. Still a pain.

I would seriously consider a straight swap for stock springs to get my car back to normal ride height.

I love the lowered look and improved handling. I went with the EiBach Springs, F/R Anti Sway Bars, F/R Wicked Endlinks, BMR Tunnel Brace, and Hotchkis Strut tower brace.









Most Important, don't forget the alighnment!!!
