Lowering springs most suited to OE shocks ?

So, can we have our cake and eat it ?

What would you say the most compliant lowering spring available is for the OE shocks ?

Taking ultimate handling out of the equation and mostly going for the lowered look.

The Eibach pro-kit springs are good. But even they will cause your shocks to wear out quicker. The only springs that are the most compliant with stock shocks are stock springs.

H&R sport. nice drop.. they will last for awhile on OE shocks.

I'd prolly get some Koni Yellows along with it if you have the funds though

I couldn't have said it any better myself.
If you go with different springs then go with different dampers.
