I think the V8's are lower than the V6's that what i noticed but that's just maybe me

Also i noticed that the V8 front Bumper looks a little different, anyone noticed that too???

Yep, the bumpers are different.

I also recall reading in these forums that the V8 rides lower, but there's not much in the difference.

Yes, the SS sits a little lower. I have v8 springs if anyone is interested.

The SS is lower and I have no idea why GM made that choice.
