BMR lowering springs

Anyone install this kit? 1.4in drop front and 1in rear. I am concerned about tire rub on the front end with that 1.4in drop.

It is a very popular option. I have yet to have any customer feedback concerning front tire rub.

The Camaros have massive wheel wells so you can get away with using larger wheel and lowering them quite a bit without any kind of rubbing issues. Like Apex Chase said we have sold a ton of these springs and I have never had any negative feedback as far as tire rub goes so I wouldn't be too concerned with it.

I had front tire rub, running pirelli scorpion zero 265-35-22. Had to use the 1/2* lift kit.

I am kind surprised you had any tire rub but with the large of wheel/tire combination on the front I could see it being pretty close.

With stock size wheels and tires you will not have problems. But when you start playing with offsets and going with wider wheel and tire combo's then you have to be careful.

Best regards,

The STB017 will not clear any of the positive displacement superchargers but we are currently working on a solution for this and will hopefully have something available sooner than later.
