IMHO, I wouldn't suggest going any lower than 1.25 on stock struts. (1" is optimal) That being said, I recommend the Hotchkis springs. They offer a 1" drop and a progressive rate, so they ride smooth when you are cruising and get stiffer when you put them to work.

Here is a comparison pic:

If you want to go a little lower than that, I'd suggest the Pfadt 1.25" springs. They offer a nice drop and good ride quality.

Here is a comparison for the Pfadt springs:

Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or pricing.

Same here. Hotchkis 1" springs. Same heights as VR Baron. 1" up front and 3/4" at the rear. BTW, some great looking cars in this thread.

Here is the only black Camaro with black wheels that I could find in our picture database but it is an awesome looking car that is using our BMR 1" lowering springs (SP019). I have a bunch of other pictures of customers' cars with our BMR lowering springs I can either post up or e-mail to you if you are interested so just let me know.
