I did Hotchkiss springs years ago and threw on camber plates along with a larger rear bar and some caster locks. Dialed in a JPSS aggressive street alignment and have been hesitant to do anything else because it's really that good. 100% would do it again.

I did BMR 1.4. Perfect height.

Benefits: Low life, looks better. In a way better handling.
Regrets: No. Does bottom out more often when I hit bump.

I'm looking at doing this as well. Some say anything over 1.25" starts to put strain on rear axles. I'm thinking about hotchkis 1" springs. Looking at pics though if its 1 or 1.4 some look lower than others. I've done eibachs and vogtlands in the past on mustangs. Love the look but never get the drop advertised.

I had H&R 1.4 drop springs. It rode ok, but wasn't low enough for me. I ended up going with Pedders coilovers and offset diff bushings. It rides awesome.... so smooth and so low.

I have BMR 1" drop and Bilstein B6. No regrets. Rides and handles great.

@Clarkstar - That looks awesome!

BMR 1.4” was the first mod I did 3 months after I bought mine back in June of 2015. The easiest and best mod will always be lowering as far as I’m concerned.
