H&R Camaro V6 Super Sport Lowering Springs - 1.8" Front, 1.7" Rear

Anyone have any reviews about these? I want to lower my car but I don't want to destroy my OEM struts or any other suspension parts. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Too low IMO.

I recommend the BMR springs part # SP052 for the V6. They're a 1.2" drop.

Best regards,

If you do end up going with the H&R's, I've got them a lot less expensive than that. Any spring kit that you put on though will slowly wear your shocks/struts out quicker than it does on the stock springs just because of the limited travel now, so doesn't matter what springs you put on, they will go quicker. Only way to get around that is to buy a spring/shock combo kit or you can always go coilovers. If you do end up going with those H&R's though (which there's no such things as TOO low), you can send me a PM and I'll let you know what we can do them for

I have them on mine and I love the way they look and feel. I'm running on 25 & 30 series tires. They could give your strut a tough time seeing that you're at near full compression but the bump stop should keep them from going that far in.

Would you say it is worth the Investment? I love an agressive looking stance but I don't want to kill the ride quality and I dont want to kill my struts. Any pictures you could share with me? Thanks for all the help!

I've talked to a few guys with these and from what I've been told ride quality is pretty rough. Most suspension companies don't reccomend going over 1.2-1.4 on stock suspension and I can see why. I'm lowered 1.2 in back and 1.4 up front and can feel a pretty drastic ride difference between the two. I couldn't imagine going that low without having an extra seat cushion for the bumps.

beware

The only way I would run springs that low is with our new diff bushings.When you go that low you put the CV at a bad angle which could lead to breakage and at the very least premature wear. It would look and handle great if you take care of the CV issues.

Ride quality is awful and they will destroy your stock dampers. With lowering springs you do not want to go any lower than 1.4" or so.
