I like a slight rake. If you want the car level you need 1" front and 1 1/4" rear. I'm running 285/35F and 295/35R getting ready to go 295/305 which should close up the rear a touch.

I was thinking about that. I think BMR is the only ones that you can buy fronts and rears separately right? In some pics online the rear almost looks lower than the front.

I think you're right. BMR might sell the isolators separately though.

If you are looking for a set of springs that have matching anti-roll bars (ARB), Detroit Speed Engineering (DSE), has a matching kit called the Speed Kit 1. If you are tracking, this would be the kit for you. I run it on my '14 1LE. but I use the Z/28 DSSV shocks with it. Both the front and rear are adjustable. It is an excellent balanced set up.

DSE is absolutely premium. He could also consider AFe Power/Pfadt for the same convenience.

No track time, just my daily. Your front and rear gap looks good.

I have 1" BMR's I'm glad I didn't go lower because of the potholes we have in Indiana.

We don't sell Isolators.

We do sell our Springs in Pairs or Sets of Four, so you can definitely mix & match.

For a Squared Set-Up ( mostly ZL1's) I would stay with 1" or 1.25"

Had BMR's when they first came out many years ago. I believe they were progressively wound 1" to 1 1/4" drop. They were great. Only reason I removed them is I got some what serious about track days so I went to fully adjustable coil overs. Be careful with going too low, especially in the rear as the outer CV joints become a problem. With coilovers I am 24mm at all 4 corners lower than stock and still run Hendrix offset differential bushings with GForce axles.

I think my issue is I want the fenders right over the tires. I keep reading that 1-1.25 is the sweet spot though.

This is why I went with 1.25's all the way around. I was told and read on here that anything 1.4 and lower you would run into issues with the stock suspension, and I didn't want that. If my Camaro was any lower, the tires would be rubbing the fenders, and so far after all these, she doesn't.

You're going to have to dial in some camber. If you go wide up front probably 285 or wider you need camber plates up front.
