She's lowered - waiting for her to settle

Then will probably raise the rears a little more. I had her raised today another .05 from yesterday - but will wait a few days to see if the goes back down. After I will raise possibly another .05 inches. Still think she's probably a little too low in the rears....but I who knows it may grow on me a little.




Before the BC Coilovers

That garage would be a great location for a photo shoot! The car looks great.

The front should be 1.25 but the rears are lower. I'm going measure in a few.

BC Racing - ER
Pfadt Sway on as well. She handles nice. Still dialing in the best street settings on the coilovers though. I was at 15f/15r for two days and then went to 12f/6r and its much better. Going to go a little softer on both.

Did you actually mean for it to be .05, that's less than 1/16" ?

I wish the SS had that stance from the factory. Looks great!

It can't. Mine sits pretty close to the same stance as his and it takes more consideration to your surroundings. These are built for the masses. You can't expect everyone that buys an SS to want to have to worry about every approach and speed bump they cone to.

Plus lowering it does stiffen the ride, probably more that some would like.

The car was made about perfect from the factory. Maybe a tad fat but pretty damn close to perfect.

This statement isn't exactly true. With the BC Racing coilovers you can ride very low and have a BETTER than factory ride!

Now I will agree that when using just lowering springs the ride comfort is sacrificed. This is why we push coilovers more than anything else.

The coilovers allow you to move the car up and down without compressing the springs. So having her lower than stock won't affect ride feel. How soft or hard will change the ride feel.

In regards to speed bumps - yes certain areas have more than others.

Yours looks lowered.



I didn't like the rear being so low. Didnt look right to my picky eyes.

I picked her back up. Drove her 50 feet and quick tire spin to help get the tires flat again. Don't know if she is going to settle more, but I'm like this.
