you're worried about voiding your warranty, but you drag race your car?

They will void your suspension warranty..

H&R springs were NOT designed to be used with stock shock/strut setup. They wont damage your car but your stock shocks will wear out pretty quickly.

what the hell does drag racing have to do with warranty and my question does not have anything to do with drag racing it has to do with suspension sherlock.

Yes, even H&R Springs will void the warranty on the suspension components of the car. I would reccomend picking up a set of Koni shocks to go along with them so you dont have to worry about when the oem stuff goes.

At this point if you are going to buy the H&R springs and Koni shocks, do you think you would be better off just buying coilovers?

Probably, especially since the install price will be the same. Some people dont want to spend the extra $300 or so for a good set of coils though.
