If you had a choice Of Swift or RD

I know im killing you guys with these spring questions but I want to make sure I get the right ones and never look back until its time to move up to the kw v3's.

Would you use Swift spec R or go with RD sport. I keep getting put in the circle of "back ordered". I found a company that can have RD drop ship them to my house but wondering if I should wait the 1/2 month to 1 month for the swift springs.

What the drop on the swifts?

Back in my Subaru days I had swift springs and they sagged big time in the rear. It handled well, but it looked like I had 500lbs in my trunk all the time.

I would keep your suspension stock until you go coilovers. Thats just my opinion on the matter.
