Running 20's with an aggresive drop? You may have issues and could need a fender roll? Good luck

Only way is with KWs. Eibach is a bit better than the H&Rs.

search for pics of the RD Sport Springs, you may prefer that to the H&R drop. Otherwise you'll need coilovers, which will remove edc function if you have it.

Why's that? H&R is a more aggressive drop that RD.

It is the other way around... the RDSport springs have a more aggressive drop than the H&R's.

This is the order of springs drop (most to least) so far:

RDSport > H&R > Eibach/AC Schnitzer > Dinan
