guys.... got my HR sport springs yesterday......... don't notice that much of a difference at all when standing outside of it.....noticed the improved handling and lower ride while driving but I was expecting to notice it more just by looking at it..... I know it will settle over the next couple of weeks but how much?? also, I still have my stock sport 17s...next week when I put the 19s on will it be more or less noticeable?? TIA

You should of gotton H&R race if you want it to be lower than your stock. Even with one or two months it will still be the same hieght. Maybe 2-3cm

hmmm, there isn't really a "wrong" way to put springs in. When my friend (Jordan for those that are OG) put his H&Rs in there was a noticable drop. Maybe you were thinking it was going to be totally slammed? Get coils then you will be happy :)

hr sport drop sucks unless you have 19 or you're a cab....and yea, when i had 18 it tucked a little, and when i got 19 it tucked alot so when you get 19 the drop should be perfect

That had nothing to do with the actual "drop"...you just increased your over wheel/tire diameter so it looked like your car was lower.

vinny, ur overall diameter shouldn't change as you move up in wheel size...as wheel size goes up, sidewall height should go down
