H&R Super Sport Springs 1.7" Front 1.8" Rear.
Did a lot of research before I got them, Everyone said the struts would blow out, bad springs ect. 6+ drag passes later and over 4k miles on them of rough driving not one issue with them.

Honestly it looks pretty good in this picture but this is with a full tank of gas and about 50-75 lbs in the trunk. I'd probably be ok with an extra 1/2" drop in the back. Im just debating what to do now.

I think it looks good. If you would put on 305s in the rear that would fill a little more of that gap too.

Just had a question about the pfadt lowering springs being sold now. Are the current spring rates front 210 and rear 395? because some people are posting that it is front 225 and rear 425?. Also the spring rates for hotchkis 1inch are F210 and R440, but people say that it has very good ride quality. Does the lower spring rate in the pfadt mean it will ride smoother than the hotchkis? just wondering since I am planning to lower my 1le now.

That don't look right at all. I just installed hotchkis 1" lowering springs and mine seems very similar...if not lower.

Just installed the hotchkis springs and they ride great. Stiffer than stock but no harshness whatsoever.

These are really very small rate changes and should be almost undetectable ride wise. When you lower a car 3/4" to 1.5" you have to increase rates to support the car and prevent bottoming shocks etc... Shocks themselves more than anything make the ride better or worse far more than springs can and a great shock set to control a particular wheel rate will ride better even with 2X the factory spring rate.

If the stock shocks are only designed to work in the range of the stock height and you drop the car they can work less effectively increasing harshness and less control overall.
