If you want to go 1.5'' then, Whats wrong w/ frrp's 1.5 spring's? Or if you want a stiffer spring then go for H&R's 2'' race spring's= a couple very popular springs

H&R Race's are too stiff for my dampers. Plus I don't want to risk the car being too stiff on the daily grind. I don't really like FRPP stuff. Have read some not so good things about them.
