H&r Race Spring & Koni Sports Installed

So I used to have coilovers but I got broke and sold them. I purchased a set of H&R race springs from a member on here for dirt cheap. My wifey heard me talking about how much I wanted Koni shocks so I could put the springs on. Well for our anniversary guess what she got me!? A full set of Koni's! I love my sugar mama!

Here is a few pics of the install
My lil bro taking the tire off. He loves it when I let him help work on the car lol.






Handles amazing. Reading reviews I thought it might be too stiff for me and too low but it is the perfect drop IMO. I love this setup! Thanks WIFEY

Thats a great move Liciouz, Koni yellows. Tirerack had them on sale a few months ago for 159. for the struts. Coilovers, I was thinking of going the coilover route last yr. Then I thought, I'd set them where I wanted them & leave them, so I went w/ a fixed platform setup instead. I like the H&R sport cup kit=2.6'' low= awesome but to low for me. So I went w/ Eibachs sportline system 2.2''

Thanks guys! They are a pretty decent price on ajusa.com with free shipping. Check it out. I have had a few more days to play with the stiffness and at full soft it is actually a pretty comfortable ride and at full still it handles like it is on frigging rails with very very minimal body roll. I am very pleased!

What was the install time? I have been trying to lower my car too. I am also worried about the ride being too stiff but im glad yours isnt. My biggest concern however is bottoming out everywhere. With the stock suspension I already scrape the bottom of my front bumper fairly regularly. This could be because the stock suspension is too soft and hopefully lowering springs will be stiff enough to prevent the car from going that low. I am not sure though. I dont want to make my car non-functional obvi. Anyone else with an 08+ Coupe lowered their car?
