Don't upgrade just your front springs, especially if it's a race spring. By increasing front stiffness without touching the rear spring rate, your car will probably understeer like nobody's business.

missing spring rates are not a good idea. I think coilovers would be best so that you can adjust your rear and front to your liking.

It depends on what kind of ride you're looking for. The race springs are pretty agressive and I wouldn't recommend them if you live in an area with bumpy pavement.

Also know that H&R springs lower more up in the front then the rear for both sport and race springs... so from the looks of it after you'll have both front and back done it'll be a pretty even drop... something that a lot of people want to accomplish.

You need the Audio Springs from Vogtland. They are designed for cars with a trunk full of audio equipment. According to my catalog, it's a 1.6" (40mm) drop. You can get them from PURE motorsport
