Ok guys, without knowing the drop amounts on these springs let us know what you think of this ride height (visually). After some response I'll give you more information but everybody seems to be getting hung up on drop amounts and bumpstop trimming instead of what looks good, functions great, and installs without alignment concerns.

A lot of you will be surprised when I tell you the details....let us know what you think!

That looks nice. My dad has a 2010 SS and looking to lower it. How much of a drop is that? Also are aftermarket shocks recommended?

Good to hear some feedback. This is a 1.4" front drop and a 1" rear drop. This is just about the max you can go and still retain the ability to align it without using camber bolts. I prefer a slight rake on the 5th Gen and these springs pull that look off perfectly.

The OE shocks can properly dampen at this lowered setting. After our extensive testing when developing the springs we determined that the OE shocks are good to about 1.5" of lowering. Beyond that and the car tends to get bouncy because the shocks cannot dampen the spring properly.
