What sort of parts are needed to drop the 2LT with 19" wheels .5 to 1 inch drop properly? If I were to lower the car I'm not interested in slamming it. Just a nicer looking height, but without having to worry about every speed bump or driveway I come across.

Recomendations?

Well we do offer spring packages for the V8 Camaro's that will drop the car about 1.25 inches. That's just about perfect for a nice aggressive daily driver ride height!

One thing worth mentioning is that the V6 rear shocks are a little too long to use with this kit. If you have a V6 car you've got a couple options... either find someone with takeoff V8 rear shocks and swap out your V6 rear shocks for V8 units, or purchase new V8 shocks for the rear of your Camaro. Often times shops that do a lot of Camaro coilover installs will have rear shocks laying around that they will be willing to part with for relatively cheap, and the parts themselves new are still only in the 80 dollar range. The damper rates are very similar between the V8 and V6, but the V6 are longer which prevents use with the V8 rear spring length.

The other option is to wait a little longer. We actually have a revised V6 spring kit in the works right now that will work great with the shocks you have.

Hey Paul or Chase how you doing? I'm planning to put a supercharger in the future. I was hoping you can help me out with suspension parts (& part #s) to help deal with the added power the supercharger will bring. I already deal with wheel hop now so i can only imagine what a SC will do lol. Do you have a package deal for the sale you have going on? I see a lot of suspension packages include drop springs. My problem is my front lip is about 4.5-5in off the ground so I doubt I can drop it.

I don't know if you need to know my mods but its a 2011 2SS LS3 6 speed, short shifter, Spiral Ported Throttle Body, CAI intake, ARH LT, Borla ATAK catback. 423hp to the wheels.

Thanks for any help & advice!

Helping customers put together packages that work for them is what we do. Shoot me a PM with some detail on how you use your car (daily driver, weekend toy, drag, autoX, combination) and what your budget is for your suspension build and I will put something together for you.

I got my certificate this morning and went over and picked up the Pfadt sway bars. this is really a great deal. I may have to go back and shop some more. I believe I have saved over 300 bucks so far. And I really enjoy your online sales system

I think I bought everything I was looking to get from Pfadt. Now i have to figure out what to buy with my certificates still coming. What a great weekend. I picked up the differential bushings and the rear arm package after the sway bars this morning.
