suspension advice

so ive been thinking about putting some aftermarket suspension on my camaro. i had some eibach lowering springs on my bmw when i was into euro tuning, but i wanna do things right with this car and get a entire suspension kit. only thing is i dont want it to be lowered like you see all the euro and jap cars i just want it to sit nice and pretty without it looking like something its not intended to be (a ricer).

any suggestions?

I have pfadt drop springs (1.25" lower) and sway bars...car looks and handles so much better.

i would like more than just lowering springs. over the years ive heard that just adding springs can be bad for the original struts

like what? coil-overs? have you seen their price-tag? If over the years the struts get warn out any faster because of the drop-springs, just replace the struts.

Pedders is what i have. great setup. also have quite a few of the bushings done and some more on the way. eibach is a good kit also and BMR is good. depends how much you want to spoend. Pfadt and Pedders are,IMO, the best of the best. BMR and eibach are more of the reasonably priced suspension kits for someone on a strict budget.
