What Lowering Springs should I get

I have 2013 Camaro 2LT RS, already have a Stillen Front Splitter and Stillen Street Scene Sideskirts with Rear Corners. I don't want to lower it too much (speedbumps and pot holes) but low enough so it dosent look stock. Im trying to get away with just the Springs no sway bars etc. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks

The BMR 1.2" drop springs (Part # SP052) are always my first recommendation for the V6.

Best regards,

I tend to lean towards the Hotchkis 1" springs. I think they have a better ride and that .2" difference does matter when using the stock shocks and struts. When you lower a car it changes the travel range of the shock and strut pistons. To much and it leads to premature failure. 1" is really the safe limit, if you want to go more than that I recommend that my clients step up to coilovers.

1.2" rear, 1" front BMR springs. I have the ACS T2 splitter, and have not had any trouble with ground clearance.

I installed the Pfadt lowering springs. Drop is 1.25" all the way around. Still rides as smooth as stock, I've noticed a marginal increase in mpg, and looks awesome. I know Pfadt recently announced they are going out of business but maybe they still have some in stock?

This. They ride well and look great. 1.2 inch is well within what the stock dampers can handle.

Excellent advice from Excellent people!!! Our 1.2" drop springs were designed specifically for the V-6 Camaro. These will give you the perfect stance that you're looking for. Also, BMR springs have a lifetime warranty to the original buyer against any sag issues. We have a couple sets of these left in stock.
