ST spring

I picked up a pair of ST springs on the cheap. My 07 ZX3 still has it's stock suspension. I would like to know how much better the ST springs are than the plain ZX3 ses springs. I tried a search to see if there was a thread about them, but no luck. So if anyone can help me out i would appreciate it.

Well...they are a bit stiffer from what I heard, but still just as high...should have gone for the SVT springs...

They are a bit stiffer than the regular ones. You probably wont notice a huge difference.

I thought the ST was regular springs with SVT dampers?
