My guess would be 1'' front, 1 1/4'' rear.
Looks good.

I'm guessing 1.5 drop, looks like whole car is sitting lower than my 1 inch drop. Did you change the tire sizes?

In this photo, the car has BMR springs on it. We will reveal the "secret" on Monday.


However, when we street drive the car with coilovers, we drop the car 1.75" on all 4 corners. No driveability issues on the road (except speed bumps and an occasional parking lot/road transition).

Stock 20" rims and stock tires on all 4 corners.

Ok guys, here's the deal. As you know we have been experimenting with different drop amounts for a while now. We finished developing the spring rates and dimensional fitting a while ago and want to be able to provide options for everyone (height-wise). Our poll was all over the place and we receive calls all the time that contradict our web poll so we will probably be offering multiple drop amounts in an effort to please the majority.

The kit shown may not be for everyone but personally this is the look I prefer. I like a slight rake to a car and think the Fifth gen pulls it off perfectly. Rather than pick an equal amount front and rear just "because", we decided to see just how far we could go within the abilities of the OE alignment adjustment capabilities and this is the result. The car shown has a 1.4" front drop and 1" rear drop. This is the max that you can go while still having the ability to run performance alignment settings. Any further requires camber bolts or alignment slot elongating (or both).

As mentioned earlier, we will more than likely have multiple options available but the kit shown will be available very soon. I know there will be tons of questions, fire away!

Your only options for this much drop will be coil-overs, the stock struts/shocks don't have the ability to dampen correctly with this much drop. For these applications we sell KW coil-overs that are available with adjustable or non-adjustable valving, depending on your preference.

Ours dragged the lift at stock ride height so that hasn't really been a good reference for us. We have small 3 foot ramps to our lifts due to space constraints and learned to work around this long ago.

Yes, the front is fairly low but easily manageable. We have an off-camber transition coming onto our property that is annoyingly excessive and it clears fine. I had a stock height C6 Corvette for a while and I had to slow down to a crawl to clear the same entrance so I guess you could say it still has more clearance than a Corvette! As with any car you will still have to be careful around parking curbs...

I'm extremely happy with my BMR 1" drop on all 4 corners... Good job getting some more options out there.

The sway bars are sweet too....
