It does a little bit. Rubs right where the bumper bolts to the body. I filed down the really sharp metal and trimmed i back right to the little bolt. Only rubs now on while hitting a dip. Had it hit before there just loaded down on the way to Cfest in AZ. About due for new rears, so going to run a little smaller. Either 305's or 295's.

Chuck, looks cool low like that but are you going to track your Camaro like that? Seems like there would be some rubbing based on the pictures...Interested to see how it works...

I put them in just like there were from the guy I bought them from just to see how it was to start. I think I am going to raise the rear a 1/4 inch or maybe a litle more. The tires really do tuck nicely and it it wasn't for the little bit that sticks out in the fender well, they wouldn't touch anything. Also, going to run a tad smaller tire in the rear and all should clear just fine.

Very informative and detail pictures. great job


How is the coilovers working for you?
when you timed the bushings which bushings did you timed?
Did you also replaced the sway bars? If so what brand?
Can you PM the price for the coilovers?

Thanks a lot...

You're ride looks sweet and I am trying to decide on what I am going to do with mine.

So what was your total amount of drop? Do you think with a diferent offset on the wheel you could stay that low and not rub with 315's?

I bought 295's, had them on for a total of about 10 min. and took them off. They were too small and I liked the 315's better. The offiset i have with the 315's is great. Brings the tire right to the inside of the rear quarter panel. Love the look, but ended up raising it a tad all the way around. After it settled it was way too low and hit on too much stuff. Now I have the bottom of the fender 28 1/8 from the ground all the way around.
