I recommend going with the Hotchkis springs for a 1" drop or Pfadt for a 1.25" drop. Both sets of springs ride very well and are a good match for the factory dampers.

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions or pricing.

Best regards,

Tyler

I'm using the Pfadt 1.25" springs and love 'em. Got them along with the Pfadt's ZL-spec sway bars from Tyler at JDP Motorsports. Car's a different animal!

Exactly what Tyler and Retro said, I would recommend the PFADT Lowering springs!

It just gives you an amazing ride!

PM or Call me with any questions.

Thanks

JT

Not as long as you get the offsets dialed in correctly.

Yes that is the same offset as the 1LE 10" front wheels.

I just installed Summit Racing Lowering Springs, I love them. The ride is a lot better along with control with handling. The stance is amazing too. Its like driving a whole different vehicle.

PFADT 1.25". Feels like a totally new car in handling (got the complete stage 3 kit). Have some rub on dips in the road but that is because my rear offsets are WAY off (+25). Will be fixing that this spring though...

I will throw our BMR lowering springs out also. We offer our BMR lowering springs in 1" drop (SP019), 1.4" drop (SP022), and our split drop 1.4" front and 1" rear (SP025). Offering this many different spring options allows you to get the stance you are looking for out of your vehicle. Here are a couple pictures of customers cars with our springs installed:
