Pfadt Lowering Springs with splitter/side skirts

Anyone have the pfadt lowering springs with a splitter and side skirts?

I cant tell if it will be far too low to even be functional as a daily driver. I love the look and want to go for it, but hoping others can chime in who have done this.

I have the Razzi front and sides and sometimes already tough in certain spots - any help or feedback?

I have a 2010 2SS/RS with Pfadt lowering springs. Love the feel, but you gotta be careful. Take speed bumps at an angle and most are fine. No real issues after a couple years, but I avoid steep slopes and I have a truck for shopping, etc. Biggest drawback for me is dragging my headers, but the DynaTechs are lower than some. The look and handling are awesome. Need to add sways too.

Thanks!

Do you have a splitter also? I have a splitter on and not sure if extra drop will make car undrivable in some situations.

You get pfadt sways too?

In my experience with lowered Camaros as well as Corvettes, it isn't about the street driving or parking lots, etc. that drives you crazy...it's your driveway or work parking garage or somewhere that you go everyday or twice a day that will kill you. If your home driveway has a deep gutter and then a 60 degree incline you will either have to drop a piece of metal or "accidentally" leave a 2x4 in the gutter or something just so you don't cringe every time you come and go. Other than that, I look at everything else as a winnable challenge

The bmr split drop springs have a higher ride height than the pfadt springs

You have to learn how to avoid things with pretty much any drop springs. Obviously some more than others but 1.25in isn't much lower than 1in. Take speed bumps and driveways at an angle and you should be fine. After a while, you'll be able to look at a situation and know how to take it. I have Pfadts and Kooks headers and I think i've only scraped them once. I've had drop springs before so I know how to avoid scrapping. It's not like we're slammed to the ground. Vettes ride lower than we do.

I have the full factory GFX kit, sides and front. As Pfadt says, it can be challenging but doable. Love my stance and just avoid places that have crazy slopes. Performance outweighs functionality for my non-daily driver. Pfadt sways are an even better mod. Understeer is gone and its way faster on the track.
