You could drop the whole thing the same amount. Most kits will generall drop the front 1.5 and the rear 1.0. It does vary from kit to kit, but generally the front is dropped more than the rear. I dont see too many kits that lower the whole car by the same amount.

The car will be uneven if the springs are shorter by exactly 1.25" the weight distribution will be off. However, most springs out there will lower your car between 1"-1 1/2". The cheapest springs that I would buy are from bavauto.com but they are $225 dollars. The have the eibach prokit springs on sale for the same price. But I've heard some shady things about the more recently made eibach prokit springs.

www.shox.com. they have springs from $169 and up. Also Ebay, but you need to be very careful there.
