Not bad! You got my attention now, I've been saving for some coils but this seems like a good route to take to lower the IS for now...

Yeah, it all really depends on your needs and application. This is my DD so I don't want it too low, specially in LA. Sometimes I have a full car too so I saw coils as an overkill for my app since I didn't want to lower it over 2''. A great spring and shock set up seems to outlast a set of coils from what I've read.

Well my car is my DD too and I don't want to lower it too low either. I might look into those NF210s too, I need to save as much money as I can to pay for my school to not be tight on payments and books lol and this will save me a ton...

Yes bro, I'm on the same page! I'm trying to save up for school and books since I don't get financial aid. I picked up these springs yesterday for cheap so I just pulled the trigger on the HPs this morning. I couldn't sleep last night

Saw a pic of them on an AR and they're nice too, but 1.5'' front and 2.0'' rear is slightly too low for me on the rear..I made this decision based on how my car is now (heavy sub box, full car sometimes, LA roads etc). I'm not really interested in any camber/alignment/uneven tire wear issues so going that low is out of the equation. Hopefully my alignment goes well after the install.

Yeah I believe the NFs leave the rear a little higher compared to the front
