"Slammed" my Camaro

I had my Pedders 1" lowering coils installed recently and here are some photos. It actually dropped around 1-1/4" and I'm OK with that.

I did have some issues with a noise or rattle on the rear coils area, but thanks to "Justice Pete" who advised me to install the specifically intended coil wraps. They were installed and the noise immediately ceased.

Pete also gave me the alignment specs for a 1" drop without the additional kits or hardware. The car handles really great. It feels like it wants to turn...like it's on rails.

I did notice a slight increase in harshness on rough roads, but it is minimal and not an issue with me.
