Looking for some lowered camaro pics

I used to have an 83 that made me want to jump off a bridge from all its problems.. Sold it a few months ago and bought a fox body mustang.. Now i got an offer for another camaro that is super nice.. Its a 91 z28 with new paint 350 tpi.. The one thing i hate about third gen camaros is the 4 x 4 look to them.. especially the big gap in the back wheels. So the first thing im going to do if i get the car is lower it.

Im just looking for some pics of your lowered cars. LMK how many inches you dropped it and what kind of springs. Thanks for helping looking to get back into the camaro game once again

This is when I installed the new eibach sportline springs, the dropped spindles have been in the car since 1993...way too low!

...and this is what it looks like now after I had to raise the front 1" back up and cut a coil off the back!

I think I bought it through Summit Racing..but I also bought some extra air ride stuff at a local indoor show. I've got roughly $3000.00 in the setup with installation.

Re: Looking for some lowered camaro pics

Maybe not to helpful since I don't have GFX... Recently switched from Eibach Sportlines to an Eibach Pro Kit... I get real fussy about having an equal gap around the wheel well, and I think the pro kit gave me the perfect drop and much better cornering than stock... The Sportlines were a bit low for my taste, but not much difference really.
