Hey Keith, 1.0 up front works, but I really want to bring the back down so more than a 1.0 drop in back is my goal. So are you saying that the 1.2 V6 and the 1.4 rear V8 might end up being about the same?

Yeah, I think they would be very close. With the 1.2 spring having the lower spring rate (designed for the V-6), I think it would probably compress to the point of being close to the same height as the 1.4 spring. The spring rate difference is only 30 lbs., and 0.2" is a very small difference in ride height, so in my opinion, I think they would be close to the same end result.

I'm almost ready, I want to take some more measurements once I put my 18's back on.

I REALLY like the stance of Colt's car, that would be ideal.

So I have a question about lowering my 1LE. Pedders used to suggest their 1 inch lowering springs for the rear plus their 1LE permagrin package. I dont know anybody, nor have I seen pics of a 1LE with a 1" drop in the back only. Will this end up giving me a level look or will the rear maybe be too low? Also how do the BMR 1" rear drop spring rates compare to the stock 1LE rear spring rates? I am hoping that the 1" drop wont affect the ride quality too much as well.

I think these are the springs you seek.

More drop in the rear, than the front.

I'm trying to find out the spring rates.

BMR Springs? 1.4"/1"

Bump, still thinking (and being indecisive).

Nothing yet - Though I like the stance of that one red Camaro who posted earlier.

If you track the car, and take rake out of the car for looks, it will by nature introduce more understeer.

What is the measurement from ground to the center bottom edge of the wheel well when running the stock wheels and tires on a set of 1.4" BMRs? I have Pfadt springs and am at exactly 28 1/4" in the front and 28 3/8" in the rear.
