Since these new Camaros have IRS in the rear of the car the pinion angle is not upset by changing the ride height of the vehicle. The new Camaros are a completely different animal compared to the earlier generations with the live axle/solid axle where the pinion angle does change as the ride height changes.

You can upset the axle half shafts by going too low though. So that is something to consider.

Best regards,
