SIM W/DSE springs, 21" wheels, custom paint

Here is a Camaro we just completed. It has a black with red outline stripe that has clear over the entire panel. Detroit Speed and Engineering springs and sway bars, Magnaflow exhaust, 21" Camaro option wheels with custom red bowtie on the center cap, red painted bowtie emblems, painted antenna on the roof.

I included some before and after the paint job and wheels shots.

Not only does it give the best look, but it drives incredible. Changes the ride to a nice firm but not harsh ride. Steering response is amazing.

It has a 2 inch drop, not .2 inch. Next to a stock height Camaro, the DSE kit makes the car look so much better!

Are you sure its a 2 inch drop. I am almost positive they stated its a 1.5 drop front and a 1.5 drop rear.

And people stating it is the nicest drop when other drops 1.3F and 1.4 rear. Which is were I got the .2 difference.

Not trying to be an ass, trying to keep the information on this forum consistent. See below.

Thanks for the correction. I changed my post. The dealership did the spring and they measure more that 1.5"...closer to 2" on this car. They may advertise 1.5", but reality may be a little different.
