    if you gonna lower the car, you are better off increasing the spring rate... because you have less suspension travel. without that extra spring rate, you'll end up bottoming out.
    I have spring rate twice the stock one, and the car is more confortable than stock... that is achieved through proper shock setup.

    The first springs I ever changed to were 1LE's so I had increased the spring rate prior to any drop at all.
