Your first mistake was installing HR springs on stock shocks. The ride is horrible. Sport shocks make it a bit better but HR's ride notoriously harsh. I had them for a year and a half and finally switched to KW's. Could not be happier

+1 on never using lowering springs on oem dampers.

after searching and debating i went with sport springs +koni yellow.and dampening is adjustible from being soft as stock to fairly firm.

rides better than what it did on nonsport springs + dampers

You have two choices here if you want to keep the drop. The car looks great!

You can either get some shocks that will nicely math the springs, or you can just get a decent set of coils. I would just do the coils since you can adjust it to your liking and im pretty sure that all KW's ride better than stock.
