Ginger the vert lowred w/ BMR 1.4" all the way around

Finished my suspension and exhaust late last night. Hence the filthiness of her exterior. She will get a good bath today.

Just went to grab breakfast with 4 people in the car, went over some big speed bumps and everything was great.

The angle of the pics makes it looks lower than it is. I'll try to take better pics after I wash it.

Ugh, I can't believe I forgot to measure the before height at the fender wells.

Looks great! I think that is the first convertible I have seen lowered on our 1.4" springs. Enjoy!

Fixing one of my tips (hangs a little lower than the other) and need to clearance one of the rear pipes. Then she will get a full wash and I'll get her to take her top off for some pics.

Handling in this care is AWESOME. Now, I have only had the car for less than two weeks, so i didn't have much driving experience riding around with the stock suspension, but when i first drove it after all the suspension swap the first thing i though was this thing handles like a Z06! The ride quality is still pretty darn good! It is obviously a little more bouncy, like with any lowered car, but not as bad as i expected. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying everyone should the the 1.4" drop; this is definitely not for everyone. I would say 25% of people would be happy with stock ride height, 50% would be happy with 1"-1.25" and 25"5 would like this set up. If you have a lot of horrible streets then DO NOT get this kit. I honestly think this puts the car exactly where it should be. ever since i first got this car I felt it sat a little to high for a sports car. Now it feels perfect FOR ME.

I wasn't sure about this kit when i bought it, so i also bought the BMR 1.0" drop kit in case I didn't like these. Needless to say I have a brand new set of, still sealed in the box springs for sale.
