    Probably will need an adjustable panhard bar to center the rear.

    The sportlines are just a little stiffer then stock springs(not the 1LE).
    So bilsteins should be fine, IMO konis are overkill with the sportslines springs.
    FYI,
    You do know that with the sportlines you're basically riding on the bumpstops all the time, that's why the ride is rough (lack of suspension compression travel).

    For me i would never do it again, everytime i took a turn meaning spirited driving i would have to watch out for any slight dips or bumps because the bottom of the car would scrape and sometimes bad enough were it was dangerous it would upset the cars handling and balance. This time i went with pro kits, not as bad and i have no issues with my 315's out back.

    been there, done that.
    sportlines not only have very limited suspension travel, but the spring rates are low and progressive.
    Having said that, you will run into 2 choices... bottom-out (if you try to dampen the springs properly) or overdamping the system to avoid bottoming out, making it even harsher... not allowing the springs to do its job.
    In the end, I got rid of the springs and got ones that allowed for proper suspension car control.
