Define low. I liked my H&R Race springs, my buddies H&R Super sport springs rode fine, and I like the way my cut stock springs ride now.

Figure out what you think a bad ride classifies as. My car rides harsh but it's no worse than with my Race springs.

What's your plan for the car? Do you want it just for looks or is it gonna be a track car?

First two are Race springs roughly 1.5" front 1.2" rear
Second two are Super Sports next to my car roughly 2" front 1.7" rear (my buddy is on the S'S springs, my car is the lower one)
Last two are my current setup. 2.5" front 2" rear.

Thanks man. Yes caster/camber plates are needed but I don't have any right now. My camber is currently sitting around the -2° range

Yup. I don't know how many coils because I inhereted them when I traded a guy my SRA for his IRS. But if I had to guess I think it's around 1.5 coils.

Cut 1.5 coil front and 1.25 back (rear of car is gutted) also back sits lower with street tires put back on it lol

Was cheap for the simple cost of new spring isolators, just need a grinder with a metal cutting wheel and its good to go.
