Sure



It's a pretty aggressive stance, I think it totally transforms the car from looking kinda stubby to a more lean shape. As far as handling. Steering and turn in response is a little quicker and feels tighter. I also have a bigger sway bar.

No rubbing, but I'm on stock wheels and tires.

You will be okay with the sport springs. The life of your dampers will be shortened though. If you are getting super sports, then I would recommend Koni Yellows or Blisteins.

How long will it take before the dampers gets bad?
Also, do I need a spacer if I decided to use just the spring?
I got M sport suspension.

That I don't know. I didn't use spacers, but you can to make the wheels flush.

You think it would last like a year or two? I'm planning to buy ST Coilover in the future, so I wouldn't mind lowering it with the Sport Springs first. Or maybe I should just go directly to ST?

If you are planning on coils, then just wait and get the coils. You should also look into the H&R Cup kits.

I saw the H&R Cup Kit, only a little bit more than STs. I think I'll just wait for the STs.
Oh and, you live in Miami, are you going to the rally tomorrow?

That sucks. I want to meet a fellow 1er! I'm scared I'm gonna be the only 1 tomorrow. Lol. Another question. When you did your H&R Sport Spring. Did you do an alignment? Are we required to do an alignment?

Lol. Yeah there's not that many of us. Honestly I didn't do one. But I suggest you do. Mine was pulling a little bit to the right.
