BLITZ ZZ-R Coilovers - other options?

Anyone running these coilovers? I'm looking for a set for my 2017 86, car will be a daily driver year round, looking for a mild 1.2 - 1.5" drop. Currently, I am considering these three options:

Tein Flex Z - Lots of good information / reviews available on these 6k / 6k rates

BLITZ ZZ-R Spec DSC - Absolutely 0 information on these, 6k / 4k spring rate. Come with electronic damping setup

Meister R ZetaCRD+ - Some information available on these, 5k / 4k spring rate.

My concern is the softer rear spring rates on the second two options, I plan on running 17x9 wheels with 245 or 255 tires. I'd like the car to keep it's playful nature and am not looking for all out performance.

Any advice / opinions will be appreciated.

I'd suggest reaching out to @mav1178 about the Blitz coilovers. Alex is an authorized dealer, is knowledgeable, and has always been helpful to me in answering my questions so I can choose the right product.

I'm running the zeta crd+ already put 300 miles on them and they are very comfortable time will tell on longevity since there isn't much feedback. Flex z have solid reviews. Stance xr1 is good and so are pbm/parts shop max. I went with zeta cause the lower spring rates. Rce/yellows is also a very good daily/autox setup

I would go for bilstein b16 or straight up kw v3/ohlin if you have budget.
Otherwise, tein flex z should be fine until you have budget in the future.
