If by PB you mean Palm Beach, I'm about 2 hours away, north. I have never been to one of their C&C's yet. Been wanting to go.
I agree with you on this.

Well they are 1.25 which is an inch and a quarter, as they settle after a few years now I'm at about an inch and a half. The wheels are 20's and fronts are 20x10.5 and rears are 20x11.5... 275/35 tires on the front and 335/30's on the rear.

Hey man, you're on here so you are learning lots about Camaro's.. lol. But on the wearing of the tires, no I have noticed NO unusual tire wear being this low, she has been this low for about 10 years now and have had 315's on the rear since day one, and just went to the 335's 6 months ago. All you need to do is be anal about keeping your tire pressure correct and keeping the alignment on par so it stays put. I was going to do coilovers way back then, but decided I didn't want to spend that much just to lower my car, or deal with any of the install issues some folks have had.

Huh, I never consider settling.
I've been playing with the idea of 1" drop springs on the stock struts. I do remember reading anything over 1" would bottom out the stock struts too. Any hard hits?

Hey there, nope, no hard hits yet on mine!! When we installed mine it says in the instructions to cut off some of the bump stops so that wouldn't happen.. Good so far..
