Is that too low up front? I'm going to probably go with 18s this time around. So I'd love to go with 235s up front (if somebody made those) and the 275s in the rear - though I'm probably going to mini tub the car in 2-3 weeks so that would make the rears 315s.
again, it's preference. how do you use your Camaro? my lowering kit actually raised mine up. before that, i was around the 3"-3.25" drop, and in Chicago, it was too much. pot holes were avoidable, but i was constantly weaving all over the place. i got stuck trying to exit the jewel parking lot once. had to rev it up and drag the frame along the sidewalk.
like i stated before, i have the 2" drop up front, and 1.5" in the back. i think it sits great. i might lower the back eventually maybe to 2" if it doesn't settle a bit, but overall i'm happy. i still get the occasional rub here and there but that 1" makes quite a difference.
the 3'' drop looks fantastic, but was not practical at all for me.
if anything, do the rear first, and see how you like it. you can always change the front springs after that....
