Hotchkis! Once mine settled, it dropped ~1.25-1.5". They eliminated the ugly wheel gap and the car handles like it's on rails.

Has anyone done just springs before adding sways on a 10/11 SS?

Any significant increase in feel and roll?

Did you guys have to get a camber kit? Or the bushings timed when the car was dropped?

I dropped mine 1" front and back, added a more aggressive front sway bar and added 285 comp TA's all the way around with the wheels I picked up from SS Panther...the car drives like is on rails.

Have the same question. What change in ride did you notice from stock to lowered 1”? Any details appreciated. Mostly I read in the forums ”stiffer but still comfortable”.

Eons ago I put comp springs on my 260Z and it was too stiff for me. Later I had a 350Z with stock suspension and it was tight enough. Of course that was a small tight handling car; if you even thought about turning it would. Awesome handling. So likely different animal than Camaro??

So while I’d like the lower look and handling I am concerned about how much stiffer my Camaro will ride. I don’t want to spend hundreds for springs and install only to regret it and take them off. I am likely going to get sway bars either before or after springs (if I do springs).
