Help with lowering springs!

Okay guys so I am a newbie when it comes to lowering springs and deciding what package I want. The specialist on here seems to be really knowledgeable and helpful so I decided to make this post. Here is what I am trying to achieve. I have a 2014 Camaro 2LS model with 22 inch Diablo rims and a staggered fitment. I love the way my car looks now however, I still have a gap in the rear and a small gap in the front. My tires sizes are 265/30/22 and in the rear 295/25/22. The only thing I want to achieve from lowering springs is that clean flushed look where there is no gap at all in the back or front. I DO NOT like that rake look what so ever and I am also a daily driver who has a 6 year old. So my question is what would you recommend for a daily family driver who has a kid and who does not want it to be real super low. I do not want to damage anything to the vehicle since it is two weeks old with just 250 miles on it. I was thinking about a "1" drop in the front and a 1.25 inch drop in the rear. Please share with me your thoughts and I have noticed that BMR seems to be the best springs available for the money. Also I do not want the ride to be super bumpy and uncomfortable. Let me know your thoughts...

1-1.25" is doable with the 22s. BMR is a great option.

I have to agree with you....but then again, I may be a little biased!!! Personally, I would put a few more miles on the car and let things "break in" a bit!!! With only 250 miles on the car, you could get a little bit of "settling" over the next few hundred miles. But when you're ready, I think your plan of 1.0" in the front and 1.25" in the rear is a good plan. But, like I said, I would wait just a bit, and see if you get any more settling in your brand new suspension. Personally, I would probably do the 1.25" all around, but in the end, it is your decision.
