1" Lowering Springs

Out of the most popular 1" lowering springs (BMR, Hotchkis, Eibach), which ones are known to lower a SS the least? I know they all are labeled 1", but I have seen some photos of cars that look lower than others when they both have 1" springs.

I have the BMR's and it lowered 1" -- and the height is perfect for the 2011 2SS I have... I measured before and after and its right @ 1" front and rear...

Thanks for the reply hammdo. I have been looking at photos for a few days and all the cars with the Hotchkis 1" springs seem to have the look I want. I have noticed that the cars with BMR springs look a little lower than Eibach & Hotchkis, and saw a post where BMR stated that their springs will lower the car a little bit lower.

When I had Hotchkis on my 2012 it lowered the front 1" and the rear 3/4".

does installing new springs void the warranty? How much are you guys paying to have them installed?

Of the 1" variety, the Hotchkis springs will lower the least and also offer the best ride in my opinion. BMR is a very close second.

Springs can only void the warranty on parts affected by the springs, like struts, but not really anything else.
