Oh and one other thing that annoys the hell out of me. How hard is it to help a fellow forum member with an answer instead of one of these ?

I got about 25 mpg on a 300 mile drive to Las Vegas going 75 mph on cruise. But my car has GFX. Its low enough already. imagine if I went 1 inch lower. I would be sweeping the road. But then again I would probably get 28 mpg... Maybe?

If your car has the factory GFX it sits exactly the same height as any other Camaro.I have the factory GFX as well as the Eibach 1" springs and i am far from "sweeping the road" and still have more than enough room for my 305's(or 315's) on 11.5" wheels which are completely tucked inside the wells.

I've had Eibach springs and bars installed for a couple of weeks now. I'm very satisfied with the looks and performance.

This is Nine Ball's car from PlanetLSX lowered with Pfadt springs on 22's

i saw an increase of around 3 mpg at a highway speed (75 mph) in my 98 z28. which was around 29 mpg. so i can believe their claims. if i remember right, it was a 1.5 inch eibach drop kit. you wont see any change in city driving. the faster you go the more you would see this benefit.

Think I'll drop mine 5" to make it green and Obama friendly
