I want my car to look a bit more aggressive and sit lower then the stock sport package, but I don't want the ride to be too rough.

You say you'd change the dampers out for Race springs, what about the Sport springs? Would you change anything with the installation of those?

The race springs have a stiffer spring rate than the sports, they have to, they are lower. Reading your post, it sounds to me you are looking for sports.

Regarding the dampers, me, I think they are required whenever you swap out OEM springs, but as you can see, plenty of people opt for just the springs. If you run stock dampers with aftermarket springs, you will have to replace them at some point faster than if you left the OEM springs in...make sense?
