Need help with stance

I installed BMR 1.25" springs this winter, the car looks 100x better lowered but it seems the rear is a little lower then the front. I did time the bushings but haven't had an alignment done yet.
Can anyone recommend how I can get about another 1/2" lower in the front?

Thanks for sharing! So you are BMR 1.25" front and 1.0" rear now, correct? Looks very good to me. Had to turn my head sideways to see the pics though.

It's interesting that you say the rear went lower than the front. I found someone with a '14 1LE on BMR 1.25" all around, and the front was very low looking and the rear sat much higher. Sounds like the opposite of what you experienced. How could a quality set of springs somehow have completely different results?

Maybe 2014 vs 2010 caused the differences? I know they had to redesign the spring due to issues with the 14/15. Thoughts anyone?

I feel your pain man. I searched and searched before I just said the heck with it and ordered the 1.25". seems like people take pictures with the car sitting at weird angles and the wheel turned. That's why I added the measurements

Measurement wise on the 1.25" springs at all 4 corners was very close the same (within 1/8"). to me though it had the look of being lower in the rear. Being a machinist by trade I'm probably a little more particular about things like this. If you put it into prospective were at most talking about .400 in ride height. Not even a half inch

I'll try to load a pic with it on the 1.25" springs.

I'll sell the rear 1.25 springs if your interested. There is at most 40 miles on them
