Pics of slightly lowered Camaros

As the title says please.

Not by more than 2" lowering kit.

Bonus cool points if you can find a black lowered one with black stock wheels... obvious reason..

You probably don't want to go lower than 1.25. Lots of options. Anything lower and you start having issues.

Mine are Pdaft 1.25 with Razzi Kit and that's plently low.

1" drop with Hotchkis. Actually rear dropped only 3/4", think the car was on the low side of ride height from factory with the measurements I took when I got it.

IMHO, I wouldn't suggest going any lower than 1.25 on stock struts. (1" is optimal) That being said, I recommend the Hotchkis springs. They offer a 1" drop and a progressive rate, so they ride smooth when you are cruising and get stiffer when you put them to work.

Here is a comparison pic:


If you want to go a little lower than that, I'd suggest the Pfadt 1.25" springs. They offer a nice drop and good ride quality.

Here is a comparison for the Pfadt springs:


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

Best regards,

Tyler

Same here. Hotchkis 1" springs. Same heights as VR Baron. 1" up front and 3/4" at the rear. BTW, some great looking cars in this thread.

Here is the only black Camaro with black wheels that I could find in our picture database but it is an awesome looking car that is using our BMR 1" lowering springs (SP019). I have a bunch of other pictures of customers' cars with our BMR lowering springs I can either post up or e-mail to you if you are interested so just let me know.
