What springs out there that will give me a 1.25-1.5" drop??

-Eibachs (1"), not low enough.

-Hotchkis (suppose to be 1.5", ~1.75" after they settle), kinda low.

Hotchkis, = >1.5" after they settle. I know b/c I have them now.

I went with the Eibach Sportlines for a 1.4" drop. So far I love them, ride is close to stock, but handles much much better.

I was hoping for a slightly stiffer ride though, so I will be upgrading to aftermarket shocks as soon as my budget allows.

i don't see any disadvantages at all with my hotchkis kit with a combination of my stock rim/tire. the ride height in side view were same level from fender to the tire. plus the good advantage when driving now is damping/rebound. they were improved over stock parts. and, the handling of course associated with my PLP front Strut Bar. i say good for daily driving.

bro hotchkis are perfect for what you want... they aren't even low if you ask me... just gets rid of the nasty wheel gap.
