Lowered Camaro's?

Who thinks lowered camaro's look a bit odd with the gap between the fender and the tire being close at the top, but huge in front and back of the wheel? I think some small plastic flares on the front and back of the wheel wells to even out the gap would look good. Much like the flares on the Z06 Corvette. Thoughts?

Agreed. That's why a 1-1.5" drop is perfect. Anything else is pushing it looks wise.

Only problem I have with lowering my car, is ground clearance. I have driven too many cars in the past that scrape, and hit everything everywhere I go. I get sick and tired of having to "cut angles" in and out of areas, just to make sure my bumper or lip doesnt get messed up. That is the only thing stopping me from lowering my car as of right now. VA roads suck.

^^^ Ur GTO is lowered form the factory bro. U should not notice a 1"-1.25" drop. Every vehicle I have ever owned have 1.50" drops and I have never had any problems and I live in Michigan "know for horrible roads & curbs"

Yep, much more than 1" looks goofy.

I've got the Eibach lowering springs and sways. With the GFX kit it looks awesome.
