thanks,
Sports suspension is definitely upgraded springs and shocks, but may also include more aggressively setup swaybars (anyone know if the swaybars are different?).

On your question of just replacing stock springs and not shocks, assuming you bought aftermarket springs with a spring rate matched proprly to your stock shocks, your ride quality will be fine. But, your stock shocks may wear down prematurely because you're replacing the stock springs with more aggressively sprung springs. Hope that helps.
