Hotchkis springs are the way to go, great ride quality and awesome handling. Anything more than an inch drop on the stock struts and expect to eventually blow out a strut. If anyone wants to be lower than an inch go with coilovers.

The BMR kit is what I am running. Super easy to install and as mentioned beofre the ride is a bit stiffer but well worth the look.

Which 1" lowering spring would be closest to factory ride as far as comfort?

The Hotchkis springs are very comfortable and provide great handling. Most people dont notice a change in ride quality but do notice a huge improvement in handling.
I believe Dunerider swapped out his Eibach's for the Hotchkis and picked up his speed in an autocross as well as making his wife happy again in daily driving situations.

And Hotchkis makes a set specifically for the convertible. Any other brand will drop you more than 1". Been driving for 3 days now on mine. Don't notice any difference in ride quality.

I have yet to get mine put on. The weather has been crappy here and my Camaro will stay in the garage until it breaks. I can't wait to get them installed. Maybe I'll make an appointment in a couple of weeks.
