And is there any concern long term with lowering the car? I'm very interested in purchasing at the end of the week just dont have much knowledge about the subject. Btw I like the split drop and the 1.4" all around the best.

The only long term concern would be the service life of your factory struts. The lower you go the more of a concern it becomes. At 1-1.25 inch you really do not have much to worry about. Beyond that you will begin to degrade their service life.

Do you guy sell a 1.25" drop all around? Or a staggered with 1" in the back and 1.25" in the front?

Pfadt lowering springs are 1.25 all around. They are SS specific but they will be releasing V6 springs soon.

You could always swap your rear shocks to SS shocks and then go with the SS springs.

That probably involves spending more than I want unless I can find a good deal on some.

so do they fit on V6 camaro or not? I am seeing more and more V6 guys with these but BMR say it does not fit. So does they fit but just not recommended because it's too low in the front or is the spring rate too harsh for V6 components?

They are not listed for the V6 because your rear shocks are capable of extending farther than the spring. This is really only a factor when you lift the car and the suspension fully extends. The springs could become unseated but all you have to do is make sure they re-seat when you lower the car.

Interested in the BMR springs... whatever the lowest are. Also, I'd like to price out a set if sway bars (stiffest/thickest you got). Thanks! shipped to 63129. Add endlinks too.

Any reviews on these shocks and their effect on the life of OEM shocks? I keep reading that any drop below 1 inch will blow the shocks but I have yet to find a thread on it....

Thanks!

We have not seen any problems with the 1.4 inch springs. You can't go much further that that though without having problems. You can do 1 inch + all day long with no negative effects.

I finally got this project finished. I don't know how anyone could have done this in their driveway, on jackstands, with less than the enormous amount of equipment that we had to utilize. Springs were a piece of cake, but the "total bushing kit" would have liked to kick our butts!! Even a 20 ton press wouldn't budge the radius rod bushings!! Had to chew them out with a holesaw too!

Here's the "before" pictures.....










And the finished stance, which I really happen to like.....








I haven't driven it yet, as it will need an alignment this week, but I sure do like the look.

Thanks to Chase from Apex, and Kyle from BMR to get everything lined up for me.
