These are just a prototype set. Not yet in production.

Just a quick drive home so far.
~.75" drop and maybe 10% stiffer than factory

With 15mm bolt on spacers installed. I really like the offset fit these provide.

Interested to see how they settle and if it affects the ride quality much.

Sits really nice. That reaffirms my planned wheel config I want to go with, offset-wise.

What spacers are you using?
They were just some generic ones off ebay i found. Just GM compatible for 5x120

3/4" Drop front and back just springs? The rake looks good!
Yeah, just the springs to lower. that's fresh off the alignment rack with an ever so slightly more aggressive alignment than stock.

Was primarily curious if you went bolt on or extended lug
Oh they are a bolt on type. I would probably only use slip ons if it was 10mm or less personally.

Does the magride require any calibration, or zeroing for the new ride height?
You know, I'm not aware of anything. I can tell you the system is working as factory. I would be surprised if it did, as all the mag ride feature is contained to the strut. So as long as you still have full range of strut travel, I can't see it making any difference.

Doubt it. I had mag ride on my SS that was lowered on H&R springs and had zero issues, just needed a slight alignment and all was good.

@OP sweet pics. Sits nice, I was planning on running 19's but I feel like those might rub and may need to roll fenders for clearance. Do you rub on your current setup with spacers?

I know several guys with SS's that had to have the Mag Ride calibrated after lowering springs...

19s would probably work fine with a good sized wheels/offset. You'd be running about the same overall diameter tires, so not much difference. I've got no rubbing. It's all working splendid.

You still liking the spring setup? Anything changed with the ride height and feel?

It's a tiny bit stiffer. It definitely feels more confident at high speeds. A few months ago I complained that the car felt a little floaty near the top of 5th gear. I don't have that Still very pleased with the setup. I may have opted to go 1/2" lower, but that's just personal preference and not even an option aside from air bags.
