The most popular spring in H&R's line-up, Sport Springs will lower your vehicle an average of 1.5 - 2 inches (depending upon the make and model of your vehicle) for a lower center of gravity, improved handling and a more aggressive appearance.

I would say the best drops are Tein's ( great drop not that expensive), Megan Coilovers (adjustable but expensive), and Works (looks good and can trust the company around the same price; user preference), then RRM (sadly, looks good company is hard to trust, cheap)

I don't have any drop right now...

But from what I have read this is what i have concluded... (go ahead bash on me for this..)

Flipsidekilla... I did say they look good, but are cheap, quality might be good i'm not sure , i just gave my opinion about the springs.

Im prob going Tein or coilovers.
