Lowered on Eibachs

I was debating lowering the car for months. I love the look of a lowered car, but typically do not like the ride quality afterwards.

So I decided not to Slam this one, but rather a mild drop and I opted for Eibach lowering Springs. I have had Eibachs on several other vehicles and their quality and reputation are second to none.

It's hard to tell the 1/2" drop in the pics, but you can definately see the difference and I think the stance looks perfect. Had it aligned to factory specs and it drives like stock. Shop had a stock height Z there also and got a pic of the two next to each other also.

Before the drop, I got 3 fingers in the front wheel well, now only 2.

I have been thinking about lowering mine also, but I was looking at the Pedders kit, which unfortunately is not offered anymore.

I have the same kit and plan on installing it this spring. I too wanted a subtle drop. The roads here in MA just aren't flat enough for a 1" drop, at least for me anyway.
Looks good too.

Can anyone else with Eibach springs on a Camaro SS provide a review?

I'm thinking of installing these Eibach springs on me 1LE, but I do not want to sacrifice ride quality.

Thoughts? Reviews?

Thanks!

I have them on my 10 SS M6. I went with the springs, sways, and UMI toe rods, trailing arms w/ poly bushings. Ride is a little stiffer than stock but handles like its on rails. I did the 1" all around. I really like the stance and ride quality, but it's not my daily driver so performance was a priority over a smooth ride but I was impressed because it wasn't as harsh as I thought.

Will all of the springs work with the selective ride control? Can you still change modes?

That review is why I chose to go with the Eibachs.
