Lowered Camaro question

For those of you that have lowered your cars do you have any issues with rubbing the front air dam pulling into driveways or other areas like that?
Also is your lowered car a daily driver?

I will be able to answer your question next week. I'm having my Eibach 1" lowering springs installed today. From what I've heard & read the 1" drop is great for your handling and it doesn't present as much of a problem as you may find by dropping it more.

lowering

I have mine installed and no issues at all. I love the look and ride. You can go look in the official SIM thread. Pics of the car lowered and then pics later with the gfx on it.

Tad more stiff and/or bouncy. Not much difference. You can not expect a lowered car to ride like a stock car.

Thanks ! How any inches is the bottom of your spoiler to the ground. I don't have my Camaro yet or I could figure it out on my own.
Your car is absolutely beautiful!

Eibach Pro Kit 1" Drop

Just got mine done today and I love it. The look is better and I love the ride too. Had them installed with the Eibach sway bars. Sorry for the big pics but I don't know how to make them smaller.

no. just learn to take driveways at an angle. youll be fine. plus if you have ever driven a 4th gne, the front end is much longer on those than it is on the 5th gen. thats why the fronts always scrapped on those.

I don't have a problem either and the roads and driveways around here aren't that great. I had it dropped about an inch.

Wheels are Vossen

Tire sizes are 265 front, 295 rear

Lower cost around 250-300 for springs, around 300 to install, and 100 to align.
