The sports dropped my car about 1.3 inches, so I wouldn't be surprised if the race did 1.8. My sports ride terrible with stock dampers though so don't even think about going that route with the race springs....you will need Koni yellows or something along those lines. I can't wait to get my SHS coilovers installed in a week and get these sports off my car.

If you just want like a 1.8 drop you can get koni coilovers for like $900....that way you know the springs and dampers were designed to match. Once you get your height dialed in then you don't ever have to adjust them again.

I was hoping that with the sport springs it would be close enough to stock that the original dampers would work, but I was way off on that one. At least now that I've read more I have high hopes that the HPA SHS coilovers will be a good match for what I want, a modest drop while prioritizing comfort for daily street driving, and a bit less body roll than stock.

Yeah I'm thinking the neuspeed race springs and the koni adj. will be perfect and have always matched up well for me in the past. Im trying to find a ride in a car with the koni coils so I know the feel... And if I am not gonna adjust the height I think I would rather save the a few hundred and get a cup kit
