I'm considering it, but I am unsure about dropping it more- roads can be rough in this part of the country. May do sway bars first... but I've heard great things about those springs- have them bookmarked on my computer.
Congrats- and get some pics posted!

Will these have a negative affect on the 1LE's handling? I want to go lower but don't want to mess up the great package GM gave us with the 1LE. Will alignment specs remain the same?

I would like to know the same thing, I want to go 1-1.25" lower. I love how the car handles now(neutral steer) and do not want to ruin that. I wouldn't mind a little stiffer ride and less lean is the turns. Just very leery about installing springs and it changing how the car handles.

I wish i saw this post before i ordered mine. I went with 1.25" front and 1" rear.

Looking at your photos it looks like the front is low enough with 1".


Love your stance too!

If you liked the springs, you'll love the bars! Rear trailing arms make a world of difference too when exiting corners!

Car looks great!

I just ordered a set of 1" front and 1.25" rears for my 1LE.... any suggestions on what to do with bump stops? I am thinking cut them in half, mainly track car and I figure I rather have the ride travel instead of bump stops.

From looking at the BMR springs installation PDF, they don't mention cutting the bump stops. So i think it's not needed
