People with lowering springs! Look HERE!!

I'm in the market for either Eibach or Phastek PX1's. Does anyone have any pictures of their car with them already on? I'm running MRR M228's, and would love to see cars already lowered to see what the perfect stance for me would be.

I really want to buy a set of the Eibachs but they don't seem to be low enough in a lot of the pictures I'm seeing, but in others they look near perfect..

Phasteks seems too low, but then perfect in other pictures.

Any and all pictures would greatly be appreciated!

Click on suspension and brakes forum and go to page 2 or 3 and click on "lets see your lowered car" there is quite a bit that should help you.

This is not mine - Phastek sent me this photo of a MRC equipped Camaro on their springs. I have a set - should be installed next week. Will post pics then.

Is your car equipped with MRC? The MRC cars will not drop the full 1.5”. Most guys have reported about .75-1.0”. That may be the difference.

How do the lowering springs affect handling and ride on mrc equipped cars?

positive as the CoG is lower. It feels more like driving on tracks through the corner.

I'm interested in lowering my 1LE but, I really, really don't want to mess up the driving characteristics of the vehicle. Aesthetically, I think the car looks great and I think it could look even better lowered but, I think I'd be hard pressed to go with Phastek springs. If anything, I'd go with BMR or nothing at all.

Those who have them seem to report a slightly softer ride in Tour and a little stiffer in Track. I haven’t heard of anyone having any negative issues as long as they are properly installed. I’ll let you know in a week.

What tires you running ? 305-35? I can’t decide on which springs. I need to lower my front like 1-1.25” and ready .75-1”. And with all the mis communication it seems what i found is take whatever spring that’s meant for an ss and subtract .25-.5” off

Here is my old 2016 SS with the Phastek springs.





An my current 2019 with BMR springs.







Exact same wheel and tires on both cars.
the BMR sits about 3/8 inch higher than the Phastek springs.

Honestly I am much happier with the BMR , they seem to be a better overall spring setup

I don't think any of the lowering spring options go low enough, personally.
