Springs and Ride Quality: Looking for owners opinions

I'm reading a lot of these threads, and it seems like people love the look of their RD Sport springs, and H&R springs so I'm up in the air between the two.

I live in NY so comfort is my main issue which will give me the better ride?

Also if someone could PM the price of the RD sports that would be greatly appreciated.

I have the rd sport springs and love them...perfect drop and the ride is not harsh at all...the scrape guard on the bottom is about a fist off the ground so you may have issues with driveways if your to lazy to take it at an angle. The rd sport springs price will vary depending on how much your shop loves you. I live in LA and the roads are just as bad if not worse than new york. Of course ride quality varies depending on the person. do you have edc on your car?

im nervous about getting springs because of that thread I read that basically says if you only put springs on you will be riding on your bump stops.

I heard the Rd sports are made by H and R just a slightly lower drop in the front.....I have a front lip so i like my H and R's because it keeps me just high enough

if comfort is your main issue, then don't lower your car
