1" lower and larger wheels and tires.

I am looking to get the BMR springs 1" kit and was looking for views of people that may have them with larger wheels and tires. I have the Factory Rep. zl1 style wheels in 10"F and 11"R 275's on the front and 315's rear, and want to make sure I am not going to have clearance issues while driving. Please chime in as to your set up and any issues you may or may not have.
Thanks, Rob

No worries. I can't even begin to tell you how many customers we have with lowered cars and 22s.

What about doing a 1.4 rear drop and a 1" front drop? I have seen bmr does it the other way but I do not want to enhance the rake already in this car. If I did I would just get in a time machine and hurry back to the 80's! LOL Right now I have 1 3/4 gap in the front and a 2 1/4" inch in the rear. So I think if I went to 1.4 in the rear and 1" front I would have essentially the same gap front to rear. But would my car look like it was higher in the front even though the gaps were the same?
