In 99% of the driving I do I did not notice a difference in ride harshness. There is those LARGE bumps which the car will seem to hit harder than with stock springs but again, I'm talking very infrequent and very large bumps. Even my wife says she feels no difference in ride quality AND she definitely feels the car looks 100% better lowered the inch. All of BMR products are quality pieces, you can't go wrong.

Like Ed's experience with BMR springs demonstrates, a well engineered quality spring set will not seriously degrade ride quality. It will be a bit firmer but not harsh.

We went with the BMR level three package and love it! Car defiantly rides crisper but is not harsh. Really loves the corners now and went to the drag strip a couple weeks ago and no wheel hop at all. Only thing I will say is you have to watch for those big wide speed bumps. We have headers and high flow cats and the cats will sometimes scrape a little on the big bumps so we try to avoid. Can't go wrong with the BMR stuff though as quality is exellent.
