Help looking for lowering springs?

I am looking for someone that knows where or a good brand of lowering springs. I am looking for like a 3/4" front and a 1" rear lowering spring. I have a crazy steep driveway and can't go much lower than this and still make the climb. I just want to get rid of somme of the gap I have now.
Thanks Rob

Honestly the smallest drop you are probably going to find is 1" all the way around. I know we offer our BMR 1" lowering springs (SP019) which will probably be as close as you can get to the drop you are looking for. Here are a couple pictures of cars with our 1" lowering springs installed.

Thats a 1"-1" front and rear? Also am I going to have any issues with the 315's out back? Looks like the black car has either 305 or 315 in the rear on the same wheels I have.

Rob,

You will likely not find a drop spring less than 1". If you want to drop less i suggest looking into coilovers for a custom ride height.

1" drop springs are a great option though. It's just enough to take away the 4x4 look and give it a nice aggressive ride height that is not scraping everywhere. And depending on your offset of your wheels, you should not have any problems with 315's.

I'd suggest checking out the Hotchkis 1" springs or BMR's 1" springs.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions or for pricing

Best regards,

Tyler

Yeah that is a 1" drop all the way around. If you are using the same wheels you shouldn't have any issues running those size tires.
