Drop springs on a vert

Guys, thinking of dropping the vert by 1 in, maybe going with BMR.
Any pics and feedback as to what options there are for a vert?

Thanks

Just bought 1" bmr's for a 13 vert. They shipped with a finish issue so theyre being replaced. They were supposed to be installed Sunday. Only paid $215 from RDP.

I have BMRs 1 inch drop all around. Looks good and never had any problems with it.

pfadt 1 1/2. Gotta be careful with curbs and take my driveway at an angle. Also got a very low profile jack to get under.This picture probably exaggerates it taking a left hand corner on the dragon

I had Hotchkis 1.25" springs on my vert for years. It rode better than stock and handled like it was on rails.

Dynosteve and Kyle at BMR both recommended the one inch drop springs for my 13 convertible. I hope I don't get them on there and then go I wish it was lower.

On second thought I bet mine are 1.25". 1" should be fine.

Dropped using BMR 1.25 with 10 wheels up front and 11 wheels out back. Super ride with no issues.
