I don't know the difference on the SS, but they have springs made for our V6's. I have the H&R Sport Lowering Springs for Chevy Camaro LS/LT V6 (2012-2013) Part No. 50786, and i really love the stance its gives. I can also get you in contact with my installer when your ready to have the work done.

Front Lowering: 1.4in
Rear Lowering: 1.3in

Yes, you will need an alignment afterward.

I used these....

They changed the stance completely. As far as DIY, I did them in about 2 hours flat. They have a video and step by step instructions. Easy install.

Will need an alignment for sure.

On my 10 SS I used the H&R lowering springs and my buddies helped install. Part #HR50778. The stance is great, but it is a stiff ride sometimes going over RRtracks and smaller dips and bumps in the road at speed.
