HR Sport (installed last month) significantly changes suspension dynamics and should ideally be accompanied by new struts and shocks, and then full 4 wheel alignment. Steering, cornering, and braking will be noticeably improved, at the cost of increased harshness over moderate road imperfections. Rear passenger comfort will be degraded substantially. I would stay away from HR Race if you any bad roads where you are, and have no plans to track the car,

Pretty much sums up my experience when I changed my suspension to Koni Yellows and H&R springs

Thanks guys, im
Gunna go with the sport springs i live in new york about an hour from the city and some roads are bad, and plus with stock rims i think it will be the ugly type of lower where your wheel is up in your wheel well rather then the flush clean look where your tire sits just below wheel well, thanks guys
