Well Swifts are on backorder too. As of April 3 there was a 60-90 day wait. Rumor has it theyre coming the end of May. My main concern with lowering a car is look as comfort. Based on the reviews of H&Rs on here, i'm waiting it out and going with either the Swift or B&G.

From what I've read, a pretty stiff ride.

I had H&R springs over a year ago and had them on the car 2 weeks and pulled them off and sold them. The ride was ok but the one inch front gap killed the look for me. The rear was fine but the front just did not lower the car enough to my liking so that was 2 strikes and out they went.

I have swift springs on my coilovers and had them on my Aragosta Coilover setup and by far not the most comfortable set up but handling and the look was where I wanted it.

I have the swift Springs. Initially I felt too much of the road but after it settled in, it rides much better than stock. Comfort = Combo of Comfort and Normal, Normal is still normal and sports is just all over the place. Love it. It broke in soo well.
