If your doing A LOT of driving... why skimp out and make your car ride like crap with only springs? The labor price will be the same to install coils and it is for spring/shock combo. I mean you can set coils at 1" drop and get that exact look you want without the headache of hoping the spring kit will work out for you.

Treat your baby right.

I personally wish i had a video of people running bottom of the line spring kit only suspension with H&R super sport springs on stock dampeners ... that's gotta be hilarious to see that thing bounce down the road!!
I do agree with you.

I'm not looking to get super sport springs, race springs, or even sport springs. I'm looking to get thrre OE sport springs, which only lower the car 3/4". I highly doubt this will do any damage to my struts or shocks, and I don't think it will bounce/ride terrible.
I'm not going to get rid of a set of ccw classics, I bought them and knew they were going to be a tight fit once lowered. But I don't want to stance the car, just eliminate a little wheel gap.
