Re: Front lowering coil springs
front suspension, including springs, have been replaced by PO. U/L ball joints & A arm bushing, All Moog tie rods, etc. Nice shiny new alignment shims in A arms. it has the typical large gap between tire & fender lip as the stock Camaro had. 14" Mags with 225/60 TA's up front and 245/60's in back on staggered width Mags
The PO basically restored the car as "stock" other than the Allied rims
I know cutting coil is a cheap way to drop it but I would prefer not to mess with the spring rate doing that
I just got out of hospital from surgery so not able to lift anything for several weeks and can't measure as described in 3-7 of Chassis Manual. If I read "ride height" correct for SBC Camaro at end of Chassis Manual it has 2 5/8" +/- 1/2".
My sense is that measurement is larger on mine but I can't get under it now to confirm
My floor to fender lip (center) is:
F- 26 1/2"
R- 28 1/2"
IDK if that measurement is higher than stock or at it but the car does have the stock looking 4x4 look with the 14" rims
If someone does have the RideTech's, LMK if in fact they do drop it 2". Eibach, for example is 1" with their Progressive rate spring. Hotchkis is 3" with their standard full coil lowering spring (all according to published data....)
Doing the 2" leaf spring blocks in rear
If I get the car 2" lower F&R I will have a 1" gap between fender lip & tire
