I bought a set of BMR 1" springs for my 1LE but never installed them. They've been in the box for a year setting in the garage and I'm not going to use them. After placing the order for the car I'd ordered a ton of parts for mods but after taking delivery and driving it through the summer I decided against changing the springs. I feel the car is alright as is in the ride height department for now. The only suspension part I did change was the rear sway bar and that is a Pedders unit.

I don't want to drop the car more than 1", so the BMR 1" drop springs seem to be the most attractive for my purposes.

Here are a few that seem to be good candidates:

PFADT 1 to 1.25 inches of drop: $300 (seems to be discontinued by manufacturer)

BMR 1" drop:$249

Eibach Pro-kit 1" drop F & R: $225
(Initial lowering length may be less than 1". Your vehicle will settle shortly into the 1" to 1½" lowered range. Exact length depends on the weight of vehicle components.)

Hotchkis (claims 1" drop but it looks like more in the pictures up front) $357

SLP claims 1" drop $249

Summit Racing (1 to 1.5" drop) $116

ST Suspensions 1.4" drop F and R - $260 (I think this was Suspension Techniques years ago)

H&R Sport Springs 1.4" Front and 1.3" rear (Part number 50778) $265

B&G Suspension - S2 Sport Springs F: 1.4" R: 1.5" $210

SPOHN SRE Springs - "These progressive rate springs will lower your vehicle 1.0" in the front and 1.0" in the rear"
Just installed:

(H&R Sport Springs 1.4" Front and 1.3" rear (Part number 50778) $265

on my 2010 SS 2SS/RS Saturday, and it rides well. Still need to get an all around alignment, but it's currently driving pretty straight, and is not a rough ride at all. Grant it, they still have some settling to do. Running stock Pirelli's and sitting at 28 5/8" F and 28 3/4" R.

Did you install bushing inserts and a larger rear swaybar?
I found a set of Pedders front radius arm bushings but the Whiteline ones are the same (dual durameter urethane and steel jacketed). I used Whiteline for the rear subframe bushings and BMR for the rear sway bar, 32mm and 3 way adjustable.
