The springs are so cheap though, i may just try it, keeping my old springs if i don't like it.
And I live around Philly. I'm not sure which area's roads are worse!

The drop looks perfect. If you think the stock is bad, wait till you get in a 2014+ where they stiffened it all up some more. rides like a mack dump truck.

Looks great. Can you put passengers and luggage in the back without too much sagging/tire rubbing?

I haven't taken passengers yet but have loaded it pretty heavy with at least a couple of hundred pounds with no issues.

Just installed H&R springs onto my stock shocks. It made a big difference, not too much harsher and much more responsive. I got the springs from Tire Rack for $230 shipped. I wanted to get this done before putting my wheels on. To anyone looking for a low buck suspension option, this is it.

Got my H&Rs installed last night. Ride is about as still but a bit more bouncy. Anyone else have this?

Did you loosen the suspension bolts, put the full weight of the car on the springs, and then tighten them? You must do this to "time" the bushings. If you don't, it can feel bouncy because the bushings are twisting further than they are designed to and acting like springs.
