Woohoo! Ride quality went down the toilet...but it seems when the car is weighted down (two friends in there) it's good...but when it's just me it sucks big time. Thank god my stereo will be in the back and weigh 330 lbs. I would tell anyone wanting a handling upgrade to go with sway bars though...more of a difference and zero ride penalty...easy as hell to install too...

But yes...I'm sure you all want pics...the drop is an even 1.75" all around...

But I will say she handles better and looks a LOT better. No forward dip on stopping or rear dip on accelerating are the biggest improvements...some handling improvement...and mad look improvement!

Austin, I am in the process of buying H&R springs OE Sports.
If you had known the poor ride quality, but the good looks
and had to do it again, would you?

Hey Austin,

Did you cut the bump stops? If not, what is your main complaint? The harshness?

I have H&R Sports on my CL-S and I think the ride and the looks are perfect. I'd recommend these springs to anyone.

I still say H&R because the look is better. All the pics of TL's with Comptech I've seen, they all look like the rear has a bigger gap than front.

Yeah, I'm not too fond of the "raked" look either....well, Crazy's got a pair of subs in the trunk and that brings the back down just enough to make the rear wheel gap the same as the front.

yes, but do you have a system or are you thinking about getting a system? I don't, so I went with H&R Sports ;)

eventually, yes...but not until i'm done all my performance and comsmetic mods mainly b/c I want it all done at the same time....and that'll be at least another 3-4 years b/c I'm planning to buy mods throughout my time at university with the money I'll earn via co-op jobs....so maybe I'll go with H&R's
