Absolutely. Of course I went only with H&R Sport Springs the first time. Was so happy my car was lowered that I ignored the terrible ride quality. As the "
newness" of my suspension wore off, I slowly came to realize that I hated it. After that, I swapped out my stock dampers for Bilstein Sports. It's definitely better now but you'll notice that small things will begin to bug you weeks after the honeymoon period has worn off. People who tell you there aren't trade offs to lowering your car are blowing smoke...aesthetically it looks awesome but there are absolutely sacrifices to ride quality and comfort.
