Are you having issues now? No one can tell you if you'll have issues unless they drive the same roads and go into the same parking lots you do. You have to look at your normal drive and see if there's any places that give you trouble now. We have guys with GFX running drop springs without too much trouble and we have guys that don't have GFX that have trouble.

I have a set of BMR 1" springs on mine, and no major issues. I don't see you hitting too many scary bumps in CA roads...

As long as you don't pull too far into a parking space with a parking curb, cut too close to a planter box in a parking lot, or take a sharp angle too fast you should be ok. I've got 20k miles on mine since I dropped it with the same springs and haven't had any major issues. Just play nice with the front splitter.

No issues with mine either... just on steep angled driveways. Also, it's a pain in the but to get the floor jack to the front crossmember or even the rear jackpoints now. I have a low pro jack and the saddle is low enough but the jack isn't lengthy enough to reach without touching.

Looks tons better though. Just get some 8x10x2 boards and make a little miny ramp. I just did a two ply set up and it works fine.
