I love my Eibach Pro Kit which comes with the sway bars, lowering springs and bushings. Here's a couple threads on the topic that discuss the ride issue...

and this thread/poll concerns the topic in general with some discussion on the Eibach kits...

I haven't done my SS yet, but in the past I've always had a great ride and look with Eibachs on my previously owned vehicles.

Did my SS with the Eibach Pro kit. Ride is a little stiffer but not bone jarring. It lowered my car about 1.5'' but looks bad a**.

Do you guys and girls think that other kinds like Hotchkis and BMR are about the same stiffness as the Eibach,remember I want to drop only 1 inch,thanks.

One of my club members has the BMR 1" springs and you can tell it's a stiff ride. Can't comment on Hotchkis springs.

I used the Hotchkis springs and sway bars. 1" drop and settled a little. Ride is a little stiffer but good. All springs will stiffen the ride some. The most difference in handling is the sway bars.Handles like it's on rails. Go with the Hotchkis. Cost more but worth it.
