    The rubber hose mod does a 1/2" to 3/4" drop in the rear. I don't know of any springs offering that small of a drop offhand. Is there a specific reason you're looking for only that much? Most of the popular springs lower around 1-1/2 to 2 inches, which looks pretty nice on our cars.
    It's on jackstands.

    I just don't want to be slamming the front end on inclines, undercar components hitting speedbumps, etc.

    Heater hose mod will probably be the way to go for that small of a drop. Other then that strano springs typically give the smallest drop out of the quality springs on the market. But they vary alot depending on what model and trim f body you have. Probably the biggest complaint against them.

    The Strano springs are the most popular and offer about a 2" drop. I have them installed with Koni 4/4 shocks. My lowest point is at the exhaust where my Kooks 1-7/8" headers/3" Kooks y-pipe connect and I have never scrapped on any incline, over a speed bump, etc. I have about 3/4 of a pop can clearance from the ground, or about 4" at the lowest point....that point is far enough back from the wheels that it doesn't really matter.
