anyone with 1.2 and 1.4 combo lowering springs?

after months of "im not sure what to do next, and going back and forth between which mod to get, im finally pulling the trigger tonight. Im getting lowering springs from BMR and the wheel kit from dipyourcar.com to plastidip my wheels. I know this has been done by many many Camaros especially the 45ths it seems like, but I believe this is because it just looks to damn good. when the Pirellis go I will be getting new wheels but until than plastidip seems like the best solution. my question to you all is this:
I have done tons (way to much actually) research on these springs, and I love the look of 1.4 inch drop up front, its exactly what I want, the 1.0 drop in the rear in BMRS split kit is still a bit high for my taste, plus they don't recommend them for the v6s anyway. so im debating between getting 1.2 in the rear and having a SLIGHT raked look im sure almost un noticeable, or getting 1.4 on front and rears both, anyone with this 1.2/1.4 setup, any feedback appreciated thank you. Also will be ordering tonight from chase at apex.

This is a pretty uncommon direction to go mainly because most of our V6 customers go with our BMR V6 specific 1.2" lowering springs (SP052). If you wanted to go this direction I would recommend running our front 1.4" lowering springs (SP023) and the rear V6 specific 1.2" lowering springs (SP054). This will give you a little raked look and everything will work perfectly.

Thank you very much waiting on a response from chase right now for ordering this setup. I know lowering springs are an easy install I don't have the tools or time to do it myself but would going to a basic shop like big o tires be ok for install or would you recommend a performance shop?

Not a problem. The lowering spring are a relatively easy install so any knowledgeable shop should be able to do it. The important thing is going to be the alignment and timing the bushing so you get an accurate ride height and a good ride. The alignment is only as good as the guy doing it.
