H&R Sport or Eibach Pro Kit are the perfect choice. Our most popular spring kit is the H&R Sport for this reason.

go with the eibachs if you want something conservative. go with the h&r sports if you want a looker. go with race springs if you want to hate your car.

Race springs if you want to "hate your car"?
With the right shocks that just isn't going to happen. My car rides smoother with the race springs & Koni FSDs than it ever had with the stock sport suspension & rnflts. OEM if you really want to hate ....

If you don't have sport suspension already buy a set of OEM sport springs from someone who lowered their car. Tough to beat the handling and ride of the oem sport suspension.
