Hell, the FRPP kit gives you OEM fitment and a conservative drop (and you get new bump stops, too). Probably very close to these spring rates (just guessing that Ford isn't going super aggressive).

Now, if you just happen to have these on hand and like to tinker, I get that. But I don't really see why someone would seek these out?
I like to tinker and I am more concerned with handling than drop. Plus I am looking more at the spring rates I desire than how they work on an MS3. My MS3 experience just helped me make my decision.

No one is being forced to follow my lead, but it's just what I want to do and I thought it might be nice to share.
