sportlines, I am about to put on 20's and it should look amazing. Rides the same if not better than stock and even though it's a 2 inch drop you never hit anything. This is with 19's but you can get a good idea

FWIW

I had H&Rs for about 500 miles. Thought the rough ride was just part of lowering... It bottomed out too often (rear drops 1.75) so figured I had dropped too much.

Picked up BMR springs and switched them out. 1 drop in the front and 1.25 in the rear. Completely different car. And apparently you can drop without the feeling of sitting on a jackhammer when the roads get a little worn.

I know a lot of people speak highly of H&R, but I am not one of them. On that note, if you want a hardly used set for cheap, PM me. I am getting rid of these things...

I'll get too throw my opinions in on them soon. Waiting on the CC plates.

Those would sell really quickly on svt forum or even Craigslist. In fact had you had them for sale in early December I would have bought them
