With such a small drop, the detrimental effects on the advanced stock shocks should be pretty negligible.

based on my experience with 335 when you first put springs in it feels just great, just like stock. a few months later you notice it becomes super bouncy and very annoying. if you drive on socal freeways u feel ur chassis is gonna blow up all the time. theyre just horrible.
i only knew the difference when i switched back to coilovers, well besides the complaints about ride quality from my passengers.

i'd rather stay stock than have that again.
