Thanks for the info!

H&R OE Sport

I don't have an equal before pic handy but close enough, but this is my R on H&R OE Sport Springs, stock struts.. This was after they settled at about 6 months. Both pics on 18"x8" wheels.. Same tires.. The OE sports are less aggressive than super sports and they were rated at 3/4" drop which was true until they settled in, now I messured closer to 1" front and rear.. BUT couldn't be happier.. The ride quality I would say improved dramatically over stock springs, much smoother over bumps and cornering much better as well. I'm in my R about 6 hours a day average, it's my daily.

Before

After

After 2 1/2 years with the VWR sport springs this is how it sits with the summer wheels.
