B&G Lowering Springs

For about 3 months now B&G suspension has been using my car as a test car for their lowering kit for the v6, My question is,

If they lower it 1.5 in the front and 1.8 in the back, is it going to make my car look stupid?, Ruin the clean look???

thanks

According to Holden engineers, the "optimal lowered ride height" as a compromise of "look" and "real world suspension travel" is 15mm, or 6/10ths of an inch... Some folks are going to be riding on the bumpstops...

not if the bumpstops are cut. it wont look bad. i know some cars it can make look kind of funny and make the front sit higher than the rear...hopefully that wont be the case...but in any instance bg is an awesome spring company.

We found when using the factory struts a drop of an 1.25" was optimal. If you go to our Sport Strut which will be shorter you can go to a 1.5"-2" drop and have outstanding performance.

Lowering the rear more and removing the factory rake will increase the already prominent understeer issues. A good set of balanced sway bars would cure this issue however..

Kind regards,

b&G makes great stuff guys. there springs are excellent for dailey driving. not harsh at all. i have had them on all 3 cars i've owned. my old cavalier, my cobalt ss supercharged RIP, and my current 02 camaro z28. i love em. with properly matched shocks these things will grip the road. great for track even better for daily driving.
