From what I understand, the spring rate is the same, or close to the stock spring rate. I heard that someone had the v.1 springs and put over 30k miles on them with the stock shocks with no problems. I don't know of anyone who has gone that long with other brand springs and having the stock shocks last that long.02black330i said:I got the HR race because i like the way it lowered my car. and for the shocks, they'll wear out sooner or later, so replace them with some aftermarket ones. also i dont really see how UUC are better than HR (refering to shocks) because both will have the shocks compressed already becuase the springs are shorter. i know that UUC says they have "progressive rates" but the spring is still shorter.
True. In my case...p0tpie said:
19's raise the car
I had a sports suspension. The OEM sport struts/ non-sport struts won't make a difference on your ride height...unless they are bottomed out and can't go any lower. but I couldn't ever see that happening (except while driving over some pot holes).O'BlueTouring said:thanks Brandon.. was your car equipped with sports package suspensions or non-sports suspensions? thanks.

That's right. It's the standard setup. The rear will look really tucked when I put a 245/35/19 on there in a month or so with my IForged Senekas.jun14scr said:brandon you just have the regular set up, not the mixed, right?
