    I joined the GT350R spring club. Installed them along with Steeda's adjustable struts, shocks, camber plates, and rear billet mounts. Still need to get alignment to see how much negative camber I get. Have only put a few miles on it so far, but am ABSOLUTELY amazed as to how good the ride is! Was very skeptical despite all the reviews saying the same thing. Car doesn't appear to be lowered at all. I didn't measure the ride before and after, but here are a couple of after shots.

    Excuse the dirt, car is filthy and that's my kid behind the wheel

    Looks great! It is hard to believe how good these cars can ride AND handle when dialed in right.

    If you didnt clock the bushings then it may ride a little higher until you do.

    Looks great tho, not too low.

    Check out the Streda geometry correcting kit with the lower height control arms and bumpsteer kit. It would add to your existing mods well.

    Small amounts of lowering can be a bit difficult to notice directly, but your lowering is perhaps more apparent when zooming the page out to 400%. You might be more apt to notice when washing the car's roof that it's easier to reach it all. If you've got a full side-on 'before' picture, somebody with sharp eyes might pick it up.

    350R wheel rates on a 3600+ lb car are entirely liveable on the street, provided the damping is somewhere near right for the conditions.

    Finally was able to get alignment done. Didn't get as much camber as I had hoped, but better than what I started with,

    I'm confused by this statement. Did you ask for more and they couldn't get there with the camber plates, or did they just not do what you asked? I have the Steeda camber plates and run -3° camber, with room to spare, that is why I ask.

    I have the same issue. They could only get about -1.9 but want about -2.4. I'm curious about how to get more.
