Lowering Spring Guidance.

I have a 2011 camaro SS and would like to get it lowered. I have 22 inch rims on it with low profile tires I also have long tube headers where the off road pipes sits about 1/2 lower than the car. I would like to lower my car more than 1" so about a 1.4" is what im looking for but don't know if it would be okay becouse of the rims and long tube headers. Has anyone with LT Headers or 22" Rims gone lower than a 1" drop on camaro if so can you post pictures. Thanks for the help.

The lower you go, the more you'll have to watch out for inclines and speed bumps. I recommend sticking with 1" to 1.25". With your setup, I'd probably go 1.25"

Best regards,

The 22"s will help keep the car higher off the ground while filling in the wheel well. If you ever go to 20"s, depending on tire sizes, then you may have a harder time in certain driveway ramps and speed bumps. Just something to keep in mind

If you decide to go with 1" I may have the fronts available this weekend. I'll let them go for $75
